* g_realloc() fix for SunOS (please report further problems).
* Continued the never ending fix vendetta regarding getpwuid(),
this time AIX has been the culprit.
* Upgrade to libtool 1.2f
* Miscellaneous other buglets fixed.
What's new in GLib 1.2.0 (since GLib 1.0.x):
* GLib is distributed seperatedly from Gtk+
* Win32 Portability
* Threading support
* GModule mechanism (implemented in an extra library) which wraps dynamic
object code loading facilities in a portable manner
* GIOChannel structure to encapsulate the IPC mechanism
* GQuarks and datasets
* GRelations for n-way mapping of certain data
* An n-way tree implementation
* GDate functionality for calendar date manipulations
* GAllocator type and associated functions
* Added generic callback maintenance functions (ghook)
* Generic functions for TAB completions
* Endian defines (G_*_ENDIAN)
* g_log() mechanism for logging of messages at different log levels
* Generic main-loop mechanism
* New glib-config helper script
* Many more API extensions
Overview of Changes in GLib 1.1.16:
* Allocate smaller pools of memory for glists, gslists, gnodes
* Bug Fixes
Overview of Changes in GLib 1.1.15:
* HPUX 11 thread system detection should now work
* Release the main loop lock around calls to prepare() and
check() so it is not held over user code
* A few Win32 fixups
Overview of Changes in GLib 1.1.14:
* Check for dlsym() in system libraries and -dl
* FreeBSD portability fixes
* Random bug fixes and autoconf/automake changes
Overview of Changes in GLib 1.1.13:
* Removed alloca() based function and macro variants again.
* Improved thread related configure tests.
* GSource destruction fixups.
* Fixed up idle function removal based on user_data pointer.
* Advanced Win32 portability.
* Enforced GSource's check(), prepare() and dispatch() constrains,
loop recursions may only happen from dispatch(), and check() as well
as prepare() are called while the main_loop lock is being held.
* GLib development now requires GNU autoconf 2.13, GNU automake 1.4
and GNU libtool 1.2d.
* Lots of random portability and bug fixes.
Overview of Changes in GLib 1.1.12:
* Added alloca functions/macros: g_strdup_a, g_strconcat3_a, g_alloca,
g_new_a, g_new0_a
* New tests structure. Type 'make check' on your system to run them.
* Avoid unnecessary extra hook referencing in g_hook_list_marshal
Overview of Changes in GLib 1.1.11:
* provide defaults for POLL sysdefs
* g_main_is_running: new function to check whether a main loop has been quitted
* a few other enhancement/fixes
Overview of Changes in GLib 1.1.9:
* Check for pthread_attr_init in all cases, Digital Unix 4 requires this
* For G_LOCK_DECLARE_*, if !G_THREADS_ENABLED, eat trailing semicolon better
* Changed g_main_poll_(add|remove) to g_main_(add|remove)_poll
Overview of Changes in GLib 1.1.8:
* Added threading support
- The ability to specify a set of functions to be used for
locking at runtime.
- Default implementations of locking functions for pthreads,
Solaris threads, and (experimentally) NSPR.
- All static variables should now properly locked.
- Enhancements to the generic main-loop mechanism to be thread-safe.
(It is used for the main-loop in GTK+ as of GTK+-1.1.8)
* Portability fixes.
Overview of Changes in GLib 1.1.7:
* Removed multiple define from glibconfig.h
Overview of Changes in GLib 1.1.6:
* New GDate functionality for calendar date manipulations (g_date_*)
* New GAllocator type and associated functions
* New functions g_slist_copy and g_list_copy to duplicate a list with all
its data pointers.
* New function g_array_insert_vals and new macro g_array_insert_val to
insert elements at an arbitrary index
* GAllocators used for glist, gslist, gnode node allocations
* Incremental freezing in ghash
* New function g_hook_list_marshal_check to eventually destroy hooks after
they got marshalled
* Revised GIOChannel to provide generic virtual-function based interface
* Added generic main-loop abstraction
* Removed GListAllocator type and its g_*_allocator_*() function variants
* Bug fixes
Overview of Changes in GLib 1.1.5:
* Win32 portability
* GIOChannel structure to encapsulate the IPC mechanism
* Reimplemented endian stuff, using inline asm for x86
* New functions:
- g_strescape: escapes backslashes
- g_path_is_absolute and g_path_skip_root
- g_getenv: expands environment variables that contain references
to other environment variables
- g_scanner_sync_file_offset: rewind the filedescriptor to the current
buffer position and blow the file read ahead buffer
- g_array_remove_index: remove an entry, preserving the order
- g_array_remove_index_fast: remove an entry, order might be distorted
- g_ptr_array_remove: remove an entry, preserving the order
- g_ptr_array_remove_fast: remove an entry, order might be distorted
- g_byte_array_remove_index: wrapper for g_array_remove_index
- g_byte_array_remove_index_fast: wrapper for g_array_remove_index_fast
- g_strncasecmp: modeled closely after g_strcasecmp
- g_list_sort, g_slist_sort: to merge sort GLists and GSLists
* New macros:
- G_DIR_SEPARATOR, G_DIR_SEPARATOR_S: platform-dependant file name
syntax elements
- G_SEARCHPATH_SEPARATOR, G_SEARCHPATH_SEPARATOR_S: platform-dependant
search path syntax conventions
- G_STRUCT_OFFSET, G_STRUCT_MEMBER_P, G_STRUCT_MEMBER: for handling
structure fields through their offsets
* Removed G_ENUM, G_FLAGS, G_NV, and G_SV macros
* Bug fixes
Overview of Changes in GLib 1.1.4:
* Added generic callback maintenance functions (ghook)
* New endian defines (G_*_ENDIAN)
* New string join/split/free routines
* Fixes
Overview of Changes in GLib 1.1.3:
* New GModule mechanism (implemented in an extra library) which wraps dynamic
object code loading facilities in a portable manner.
* glib-config features extra "glib" (old behaviour remains) and "gmodule"
(add libgmodule.so to the --libs output) arguments now. this can also
be specified as fourth argument to the AM_PATH_GLIB() macro.
* Overhaul of the `inline' autoconfiguration stuff, so inlining should be
sufficiently supported on all systems that allow inlining now.
* New g_log() mechanism for logging of messages at different log levels,
associated with certain log domains (define -DG_LOG_DOMAIN for your library).
* New inline functions for bit masks tests.
* GNode macros (and functions) now return the newly allocated node.
* New macro G_VA_COPY() to work around va_list copying oddities on some
platforms. the non-static g_vsprintf() function vanished in favour of
a publically exported g_strdup_vprintf().
People that used the former g_vsprintf() would definitely want to read the
associated ChangeLog entries (grep for printf).
* New utility functions:
g_strndup(), g_on_error_query(), g_on_error_stack_trace(), g_strdup_printf(),
g_strdup_vprintf(), g_printf_string_upper_bound(), g_spaced_primes_closest(),
g_strnfill(), g_memdup().
* Overhaul of the array implementations, this contains some source incompatible
changes. Again, the ChangeLog is much more informative (grep for garray.c).
* The internals of the g_dataset mechanism are now exported through the
new g_datalist_* API (this is also the underlying implementation for the
keyed data of GtkObjects).
* New function g_atexit(), use of the ATEXIT() macro is discouraged.
* Better configure checks for ansi compliance.
* Libtool update to version 1.2b.
* Lotsa bug fixes and cleanups as always ;)
Overview of Changes in GLib 1.1.2:
* Fixed packaging mistake which occured in 1.1.1
* fix 64-bitness in g_prints in glibtest
What is new in GLib 1.1.1:
* An n-way tree implementation is provided now, based on the GNode structure.
* Bugfix for pointer arrays.
What is new in GLib 1.1.0:
* GLib is distributed seperatedly from Gtk+ now and uses a sophisticated
shared library versioning scheme to deal with interface and binary
incompatibilities.
* There is a glib-config helper script installed now.
* Fixups all over the place.
* gboolean is now a gint, not a gchar anymore.
* API extensions for GList and GSList.
* New g_str*() functions for simple string handling.
* GScanner extensions for scope, warning and error handling.
* Minor performance improvements for GMemChunks.
* Implementations of GQuarks and datasets (similar to GtkObjects data
mechansim, but works for generic memory locations).
* More convenience macros for GNU C function arguments.
* Const correction all over the place, including a new pointer type
gconstpointer.
* Generic functions for TAB completions.
* GRelations for n-way mapping of certain data.
