Overview of changes in GLib 2.49.1
==================================

 * GDesktopAppInfo now allows bus activation with dashes. This is
   not technically allowed per the Desktop Entry specification, but
   it happens in the wild. Rather than forcing people to go through
   another traumatic desktop file rename, accept it and translate - to _.

 * The support for giving names to threads has been improved. Thread names
   are now supported on Solaris as well, and the Linux support no longer
   uses prctl() but the pthread api.

 * GIO resources can now be overridden at runtime, using the G_RESOURCE_OVERLAYS
   environment variable.

 * gdbus-codegen can now generate autocleanup definitions for the types
   it generates. Use the --c-generate-autocleanup option to control this

Bugs fixed:
 665446 Use g_abort() instead of abort()

Overview of changes in GLib 2.47.3
==================================

The inline cleanup in the last release accidentally removed three
symbols from libglib-2.0.so.  It is unlikely that this will have caused
any problems because these symbols were only backup symbols for
definitions exported as inlines in the header files, but ABI is ABI.

This release corrects only this problem.

Overview of changes in GLib 2.47.2

* We have formalised the assumption that all compilers that are
  interested in support 'static inline' and simplified the macros around
  this considerably.  Please watch for and report unintentional fallout.

* New API: hardware-assisted helpers for overflow-checked integer math.

* other fixes

Bugs fixed:
 696324 gtester-report doesn't work with Python 3.x
 719966 glib: Add missing (nullable) and (optional) annotations
 752837 gobject and glib-compile-resources rely on .CRT$XCU section, no longer works with Win 10 UCRT (VS 2015)
