Overview of changes in GLib 2.66.2

  • Important and time-critical fix to DST transitions which will happen in Europe on 2020-10-25 on distributions which use the ‘slim’ tzdata format (which is now the default in tzdata/tzcode 2020b) (work by Claudi M., LRN) (#2224)

  • Further timezone handling changes to restore support for changing the timezone when /etc/localtime/ changes (work by António Fernandes, Sebastian Keller) (#2204)
