Overview of changes from GLib 2.39.90 to GLib 2.39.91
=====================================================

This release introduces a hard dependency on present and functioning
clock_gettime() and CLOCK_MONOTONIC.  It also introduces a dependency on
pthread_condattr_setclock() unless your system happens to have
pthread_cond_timedwait_relative_np() (as do Mac OS and Android).  This
release is known to be broken with at least GNU/Hurd, pending addition
of working pthread_condattr_setclock(CLOCK_MONOTONIC) there.

New API: g_str_to_ascii()

* Fixed bugs:
 670144 unconditional use of CLOCK_MONOTONIC is broken
 673607 invalid assumption in g_cond_wait_until() / g_get_monotonic_time() API
 710142 Add more impressive transliteration to GLib
 722360 make check fails
 722604 (partial) Various tests are failing with 2.39.3
 723316 g_hash_table_iter_remove() should be explicit whether or not it is safe while iterating the table
 724609 Fix build of GIO on Windows
 724687 gmain: make monotonic time really monotonic, everywhere
 724706 gsource: document priority of child sources
 724707 some GSocket source improvements
 724839 GMainContext: some source ID cleanups
 724858 Dist gtranslit-data.h
 724994 Missing icons for bookmarks in file chooser
 725023 Can no longer find apps by executable/desktop file name

Overview of changes from GLib 2.39.0 to GLib 2.39.1
====================================================

 * GSettings fixes/improvements

   - GSettingsSchema API is now more powerful and consistent

   - new GSettingsSchemaKey API allows accessing metadata for keys:
     type, default value, range and the long-awaited support for summary
     and description

   - GSettingsSchemaSource gains support for listing schemas within a
     source.  Deprecate the global API that did this for the default
     source.

   - 'gsettings list-schemas' now works properly with --schemadir

   - deprecate a bunch of now-redundant functionality on GSettings

   - add API to GSettings for getting the default value of a key (as set
     by the sysadmin)

   - add API to GSettings for determining if the user has assigned a
     particular value to a key (ie: we are not just reading the default)

   - ignore qualified tags and attributes appearing in schema files

 * Applications/Actions

   - make GSimpleAction a bit more strict with respect to state changes
     that would violate the interface (ie: by changing the state type
     after construction)

   - throw an error when attempting to 'Describe' a non-existent action
     via D-Bus instead of returning a bogus description

   - throw an error when attempting to invoke unsupported methods on an
     Application (eg: 'Open' on an app that doesn't HANDLES_OPEN)
     instead of emitting a g_critical() in context of the app (which is
     not itself at fault for the errant call)

 * Appinfo

   - substantially rework GDesktopAppInfo to reduce the amount of disk
     accesses that are performed in common situations

   - add a new class: GAppInfoMonitor for discovering when applications
     are installed/removed

   - add a new g_desktop_app_info_search() API for searching for
     installed applications by name, keywords, etc.

 * GMarkup: add new G_MARKUP_IGNORE_QUALIFIED flag for skipping over
   "qualified" tags and attributes (those with a colon in the name, such
   as 'my:tag')

 * GDBus

   - ignore qualified tags, as above

   - GTestDBus: unset all D-Bus addresses (such as STARTER) to ensure
     that test programs don't pick them up

   - add new session_bus_run() convenience in the tests and use it

 * GRand: use real random data as a seed on win32 and use the
   timestamp/pid/uid fallback only on UNIX machines where we can't open
   '/dev/urandom'.  This may cause issues with older mingw32 releases
   due to a missing prototype for the rand_s() API.

 * Many win32 (and particularly MSVC) portability fixes.  Many
   additional tests are now runnable when building with MSVC.

 * Due to early testing of the (soon to land) GCleanup framework, a very
   large number of memory errors have been found and fixed (mostly in
   the testcases, but some in glib itself).

 * GIO:

   - some more seeking cleanups: particularly on GLocalFileInputStream

   - don't leave a .trashinfo file around if trashing a file fails

   - Add a request_certificate virtual method to GTlsInteraction

Overview of changes from GLib 2.38.0 to GLib 2.39.0
====================================================

 * prep for the 2.40 series (version macros, docs index, etc.)

 * GNotification

   - new API for sending persistent notifications via the desktop shell

   - notifications persist when the application has quit and clicking on
     them can restart the application with an action (via
     DBusActivatable)

 * GSubprocess

   - new API for launching subprocesses

   - nice GIO integration like async functions, cancellability, etc.

   - a convenient communicate() API inspired by the same API in Python

   - related: the gspawn API now has a CLOEXEC flag for the created
     pipes for stdin/stdout/stderr

 * New gapplication(1) commandline tool

   - intended to be used with DBusActivatable apps

   - can be used for launching apps, opening files, invoking application
     actions and listing apps and actions

   - bash tab completion is supported

 * GDesktopAppInfo changes:

   - g_file_get_path() can implicitly cause a FUSE mount so don't call
     it until we know we need it (for an app that doesn't support URIs)

   - don't crash when trying to load from a keyfile with
     DBusActivatable=true

   - remove some dead code, refactor the search path handling a bit and
     do a large-scale whitespace cleanup (prep work for the pending
     desktop file index)

 * File monitors

   - fix broken handling of mount point monitoring

   - remove some strange use of GObject::constructor() from the base
     class and inotify backend

   - fix GFileMonitor to work in the non-default main context even when
     the main context is not running (or is blocked)

   - add internal private API for easily creating a file monitor in the
     GLib worker thread

 * GSettings

   - g_settings_list_children: only list viable schemas.  This fixes a
     longstanding issue where 'gsettings list-recursively' will crash
     when there are invalid schemas installed

   - don't accept invalid paths on g_settings_new_with_path, etc.

 * GIO

   - GFile now has a thumbnail::is-valid attribute to check if the
     thumbnail in thumbnail::path needs to be regenerated

   - GDBusProxy now has a flag to control autostarting of services at
     construction time

   - for GSeekable, properly introduce the concept of "resizable" vs.
     "fixed-sized" streams in the docs, explaining the expected
     semantics of the interface in each case

   - fix some cases in GMemoryOutputStream that were violating the above
     expectations (which may cause a slight API incompatibility)

   - clean up GCredentials code and add support for Hurd and Solaris

   - improve splicing by using different codepaths for the case where we
     have real _read_async() and _write_async() implementations on the
     stream vs. the case where they are internally emulated (via
     dispatching the sync variant of the call in a thread)

 * GKeyFile

   - fix a leak in g_key_file_get_(u)int64 when we fail to parse the
     value as an integer

   - add long-requested API g_key_file_save_to_file()

 * Portability improvements

   - avoid using O_DIRECTORY on platforms that don't have it

   - be careful about systems that define SOCK_CLOEXEC but don't
     actually support it (like Hurd)

   - only use SA_RESTART if it exists

 * Other small API changes/additions

   - a pair of functions to support matching strings for the type of
     search functionality that you'd expect to have with things like
     GtkSearchBar.  This will also be used by the desktop file index.

   - g_str_is_ascii() with obvious purpose

   - g_test_expect_message() no longer appears to allow you to catch
     G_LOG_ERROR messages

 * GMainContext/GSource

   - fix handling of overflowing the 'next source id' counter

546
   - g_source_remove() will now throw a critical in the case that you

     try to remove a non-existent source.  We expect that there is some
     code in the wild that will fall afoul of this new critical but
     considering that we now reuse source IDs, this code is already
     broken and should probably be fixed.

   - simplify handling of the 'current dispatching source' to not
     require use of a linked list

 * GObject

   - the long-broken (and leaky) pattern of destroying a just-allocated
     object from inside of a custom GObject::constructor is now
     officially completely illegal and will abort the program

 * Unicode: update to 6.3.0

 * Bug fixes

   - g_file_copy() now falls back to pathname queryinfo.  This should
     clear up the bugs with copying from some GVfs backends (afp,
     gphoto, archive, at least).

   - fix an out-of-bounds read in the xdgmime code

   - fix a typo in the /org/freedesktop/DBus path on the object manager
     client

   - skip emitting path_namespace='/' in match rules in order to
     workaround a bug in the D-Bus daemon and fix our own implementation
     (which shared exactly the same bug)

   - fix crashes on precondition violations for GParamSpec constructors

   - many other small fixups (see bug list)

  * Many documentation improvements

What's new in Glib 2.38
========================

 * Application support

  - GIO now provides an implementation of Desktop Actions from the
    desktop entry specification

  - GApplication now implements the org.freedesktop.Application
    interface as per the desktop entry specification, allowing for
    standards-based D-Bus launching of GLib-based applications

  - GDesktopAppInfo now supports DBusActivatable as per the desktop
    entry specification, allowing GLib-based applications to use D-Bus
    to launch other applications

  - GApplication now has a "busy" flag that can be set on an application
    to allow the shell to show that it is busy

 * GObject

  - the private offset for a given class type is now always constant.
    This was done by reorganising the memory layout of instances so that
    the private data comes before the "official" pointer for the object
    (ie: at a negative offset).  Valgrind macros were added to mitigate
    any problems that this may have caused.

  - a new G_DEFINE_TYPE_WITH_PRIVATE has been added along with a
    generated function *_get_instance_private() that can now serve as an
    equally-performing alternative to ->priv pointers in instances
    (allowing memory savings)

  - new G_PRIVATE_FIELD, G_PRIVATE_FIELD_P and G_PRIVATE_OFFSET macros
    provide a convenient method of converting between named variables in
    private structures and their (now constant) offsets

  - installing properties on a GObjectClass must now be done from
    class_init.  It is no longer valid to install them after class_init
    has returned.

  - it is now possible to manually break a GObject property binding
    without destroying one of the objects involved

 * Icons

  - the requirements for implementing the GIcon interface have changed
    in order to make it possible to consume all implementations of GIcon
    with a finite number of cases

  - a new GBytesIcon type was added for an icon represented by an
    in-memory binary blob in a known image format (ideally png).

  - new APIs g_icon_serialize() and g_icon_deserialize() replace the old
    to/from_string APIs and will always work, irrespective of which
    types have been initialised in the calling process, allowing for a
    serialised GdkPixbuf to be deserialised in a process that doesn't
    have GdkPixbuf

  - support for icons has been added to GMenuModel using the new APIs

 * Actions and menus

  - GPropertyAction provides a convenient way of creating a stateful
    property corresponding to a property on a GObject, such as the
    "visible-child-name" property of a GtkStack

  - new API g_menu_remove_all()

  - we now have established rules about what is a "valid" action name
    and an API to check them

  - a new API for converting detailed action names to and from the
    split-out name and parameter value (as GVariant)

  - for backwards compatibility, invalid action names can still be used
    with most functions, but this is not recommended

 * Other GIO

  - GDBus now supports services that wish to handle some of all
    properties on an interface asynchronously, without requiring the
    service to reimplement the entire org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties
    interface

  - GFile now has a new _measure_disk_usage() (and async) API for
    recursively determining the amount of disk space used by a
    particular directory (akin to 'du').

  - asynchronous version of g_file_trash() and g_file_make_directory()
    have been added

 * Other new API

  - GRegex has a new function to query the maximum lookbehind length to
    allow for regexp matching on streams

  - GVariant has two new APIs for constructing strings that allow
    avoiding copies in some cases: g_variant_new_take_string() and
    g_variant_new_printf()

 * Testing

  - we can now generate TAP output

  - new support functions for simplifying the process of dealing with
    data files for srcdir != builddir and installed test cases

  - g_test_trap_subprocess() provides a portable alternative to
    g_test_trap_fork()

 * Other

  - GLib now builds on Android against the bionic C library

Overview of changes from GLib 2.37.4 to 2.37.5
==============================================

* Implement the Desktop Action specification: In the case that the
  application is a GApplication and DBusActivatable, actions from the
  desktop file are translated into GActions that have been added to
  the  application with g_action_map_add_action().

* GPropertyAction is a new type of GAction that represents the value
  of a property on an object, and allows to change the value when
  activated.

* GNetworkMonitorNetlink can now handle default routes via a device.

* The gsettings tool now reports failure to write a key (e.g. because
  the key was locked down)

* Miscellaneous new api:
 - g_variant_new_printf
 - g_action_print_detailed_name
 - g_regex_get_max_lookbehind

Overview of changes from GLib 2.37.0 to 2.37.1
==============================================

 * add support for installed tests:
   https://live.gnome.org/GnomeGoals/InstalledTests

 * add a new g_test_trap_subprocess() that works on Windows as a
   replacement for the (now deprecated) g_test_trap_fork()

 * support for explicitly cancelling a gobject property binding

 * performance improvements for signal argument handling

 * stop using `quotes' in very many log messages generated by GLib, for
   favour of 'this style'.  This may cause testcases in other packages
   to fail if they were matching on the previous text.

 * improve manpages: add missing arguments and flags

Overview of changes from GLib 2.35.7 to 2.35.8
==============================================

This release contains one major change that may cause problems: type
modules are now never unloaded.  This is implemented by (effectively)
leaking the last reference on dynamic types.  Some testcases that check
for unloading of types have been observed to be broken by this change,
but we know of no actual cases of "real code" breaking.  Please report
any problems.

Other changes:
 * A couple of build fixes for Solaris
 * Fix signal emission for GDBusObjectManagerClient
 * annotations fixes
 * new API: g_dbus_address_escape_value()
 * GSocketClient: add proxy-resolver property
 * GSimpleProxyResolver: new simple GProxyResolver class
 * documentation fixes
 * gnetworkaddress: preserve IPv6 scope ID in IP literals

Bugs fixed:
 691105 Allow GSocketClient to override GProxyResolver for per client proxy settings.
 692827 configure test fails for arpa_nameser.h
 692829 new Btrfs support causes build failure on Solaris
 693285 GDBusObjectManagerClient: won't emit object-added|removed if name-owner arrives later
 693502 Cross-compiling documentation: typo (np -> no)
 693673 add g_dbus_address_escape_value()
 693694 gio: Fix annotations on g_[async_]initable_new() and friends

Overview of changes from GLib 2.35.6 to 2.35.7
==============================================

This is a quick follow-up release with a few bug fixes.

* Fix the build on systems with strict linkers by adding -pthread back
  to the LDFLAGS for a testcase.

* Re-enable native atomic operations on some buggy versions of clang
  that ship as part of the MacOS X SDK.

* Make G_IO_FLAG_IS_WRITEABLE an enum again (the #define broke bindings)

* This release contains an incompatible change to the g_get_home_dir()
 function. Previously, this function would effectively ignore the HOME
 environment variable and always return the value from /etc/password.
 As of this version, the HOME variable is used if it is set and the
 value from /etc/passwd is only used as a fallback.

* We now install a public "gnetworking.h" header that can be used to
 include the relevant OS-dependent networking headers. This does not
 really abstract away unix-vs-windows however; error codes, in
 particular, are incompatible.

* Bugs fixed in this release:

Overview of changes from GLib 2.35.1 to 2.35.2
==============================================

Note that the incompatible change to the ->constructed() vfunc that was
made in the last unstable release (2.35.1) has been reverted due to
causing regressions in applications.

A new incompatible change has been introduced in this version: it is no
longer permitted to add interfaces to a class after the first
instantiation (or more strictly: after g_type_class_ref()).  Bug #687659
is tracking this.

Two private symbols (g_menu_{attribute,link}_hash_iter_get_type) which
were accidentally exported have also been properly hidden.  This may
cause some tools to issue warnings about ABI mismatch.

The remaining changes should be relatively harmless: 

 * GIO now has kqueue support for GFileMonitor (BSDs, Mac OS)

 * New g_variant_new_from_bytes() API

 * UNIX signal sources now allow watching SIGUSR1 and SIGUSR2

 * Many pedantic cleanups to adhere to a higher level of -W use

 * GTask changes to avoid a deadlock

 * many cleanups/fixes for Windows

 * Boxing for GPollFD, GIOChannel, GBytes, GByteArray

 * Fix URL-encoding of trashed files

 * Many other docs and annotations fixes

These two changes in particular may be slightly incompatible.  Please
give feedback if they cause trouble:

  * Signal handlers connected with g_signal_connect_object() are now
    automatically disconnected on target object destruction

  * GTask (the new GAsyncResult implementation) has landed 

  * GLib version macros updated

  * Update to Unicode 6.2

  g_hash_table_add, g_hash_table_contains

* GSocketConnection has gained API for managing connection status

* GSettings: a native OS X backend has been added, under the
  name 'nexstep'

Overview of changes from GLib 2.31.4 to 2.31.6
==============================================

* GApplication no longer has APIs for setting menus.  Those have been
  moved to GtkApplication.

* the GActionGroup import/export functionality has been decoupled from
  GApplication by the introduction of a new interface for the purpose of
  handling platform data: GRemoteActionGroup.  This allows Gtk to
  properly deal with platform data (and gdk threads) on window actions.

* lots of documentation improvements

* bug fixes and a huge number of memory leak fixes

* the test suite now passes on ARM and some of the GDBus testcase hangs
  we've been seeing have been resolved (although others could remain)

* g_bytes_get_data() API changed: now includes 'size' out parameter

* new g_queue_free_full() API similar to g_[s]list_free_full()

* desktop files: use standard "Keywords" now, not "X-GNOME-Keywords"

* gsettings commandline tool now has --schemadir option for schemas not
  installed in the usual place (ie: as part of plugins)

* Bugs fixed:
 643736 GApplication doesn't emit dbus signals on action updates
 657433 g_queue_free_full() missing
 664699 glib: documentation fixes
 665737 acquire/release gdk threads lock on incoming dbus
 665879 GBytes: add a size argument to g_bytes_get_data
 666113 various leaks in GLib, GIO are visible in the regression tests
 666115 various tests leak memory, obscuring real leaks in the library
 666145 Doc could be more explicite that g_thread_init calls can be droped
 666173 Configure warning - linux/netlink.h usability... no
 666296 Race condition in g_thread_xp_get_srwlock
 666415 Settings tools should allow specifying a schema directory

* EXPERIMENTAL: Menu support has been added to GApplication.  Menus
  are exported on the bus, alongside the actions that are already there.
  There have also been many related improvements to action group
  functionality.

  These new APIs are subject to changes in the coming releases.  In
  particular, it seems somewhat likely that the APIs for registering
  menubars may change in order to accommodate windows with different
  types of menubars.

* GDBusConnection previously directly dispatched destroy notifies when
  unregistering objects if the current main context was the same context
  the object was exported on.  It now unconditionally dispatches these
  through an idle on the context.

* Clean up Requires in pc files. Linking against GIO no
  longer drags in gmodule. This may require dependency
  fixes here and there.

* Introduce GBytes, a data type for immutable, fixed-size
  byte sequences. This makes the pre-existing GBuffer
  API available outside GLib

  connections

* Improve the performance of GObject property notifies.

* GDBus:
 - fix a race when unowning a name immediately after owning it
 - thread safety improvements on GDBusConnection
 - fixes for exit-on-close functionality

* Deprecations:
 - add G_SIGNAL_DEPRECATED
 - don't use G_DISABLE_DEPRECATED masking for functions anymore

* docs
 - tmpl/ is finally dead for glib

* GIO:
 - GInetAddressMask: new type for internet address range matching

Overview of changes from GLib 2.29/2.30 to 2.31.0
=================================================

This release contains a huge number of changes (500 commits worth).  The
list below attempts to summarise, but not every change is listed.

* Major changes to threading and synchronisation
 - threading is now always enabled in GLib
 - support for custom thread implementations (including our own internal
   support for errorcheck mutexes) has been removed
 - a whole lot of dead code (to deal with the non-threaded case) has
   been ripped out.  This includes the racy path of GMainContext that
   caused deadlocks with respect to child process exits in
   single-threaded programs (such as gtester).
 - libgthread is now an empty shell and g_thread_init() is no longer
   required (and has been deprecated)
 - GMutex and GCond can now be statically allocated without explicit
   initialisation.  Dynamic allocation for these types is deprecated.
 - new types GRecMutex and GRWLock can also be statically allocated
   without explicit initialisation.
 - GPrivate can now be statically allocated and has an improved API.
   Dynamic allocation of GPrivate is deprecated.
 - GStaticMutex, GStaticRecMutex, GStaticRwLock, GStaticPrivate are
   deprecated.
 - GCond now uses monotonic time internally and a new API takes
   monotonic time for timed waits, deprecating the wallclock API
 - removal of the insane macro indirection used in the previous
   implementation of threading and synchronisation APIs
 - use SRWLock and CONDITION_VARIABLE APIs when available on Windows
   (Vista and later) and emulate them on XP
 - leaks of G(Static)Private-allocated data on some cases of thread exit
   have been fixed
 - simplified new thread creation API with the old API deprecated.  The
   concept of joinability has disappeared (all threads are joinable) as
   have priority levels, 'bound'ness (ie: kernel vs. userspace threads)
   and ability to manipulate the stack size.
 - GThread is now a refcounted type
 - other implementation details changed

* Move headers for some deprecated functionality to a separate
  deprecated/ directory.

* New support for attribute-based deprecations to issue compiler
  warnings instead of breaking the build and/or giving warnings about
  implicit declarations (and possibly miscompiling).

* GCache has been deprecated (after its last use was removed from our
  platform over a year ago).

* It is no longer possible to include individual headers (like
  "ghash.h") -- you must #include <glib.h>.

* The misguided experiment of allowing the program to stumble along with
  missing GSettings schemas is now over -- the abort is back.

* Clarify that fork() is not valid while using GMainContext.  This is
  because the internal resources of the GMainContext end up being shared
  by both processes.  We had an assert here but it was breaking existing
  (valid) use cases as well, so it has been removed for now.

* GApplication
  - add ::shutdown signal as logical dual to ::startup
  - don't use a GMainLoop: iterate the GMainContext directly (improves
    quit logic)

* Several portability fixes for Windows, OpenBSD, Solaris

* Add new GValue API to specifically deal in signed chars (in case the
  platform defines 'char' as unsigned)

2654 2655 2656
* some new API to mitigate the problems associated with calling setenv()
  in a multi-threaded program

2657 2658 2659
* Use CLOCK_MONOTONIC unconditionally if the libc has support at compile
  time (ie: stop checking for kernel support at runtime).

* pkg-config files:
  - drop -uninstalled variants
  - remove gobject dependency on gthread

* New macro G_ATOMIC_LOCK_FREE is defined if the atomic operations are
  implemented without use of a mutex.  Cleaned up atomic-related
  compilation issues with mingw compilers on win32 systems.

2668 2669 2670 2671 2672
* SOCKS proxy and resolver improvements

* Fix the spelling of G_IO_FLAG_IS_WRITABLE (was WRITEABLE) and
  introduce a macro for backwards compatibility.

* mount monitoring is now based on /proc/mounts (where available)
  instead of mtab

* new macros G_SOURCE_CONTINUE and G_SOURCE_REMOVE for returning from
  GSourceFunc (so you don't have to remember what TRUE and FALSE mean)

* use xlocale functions where available to avoid too much heavy lifting
  in functions like g_ascii_strtod()

* GMappedFile can now be created from an fd

* error message strings grammar/i18n fixes

* many docs updates

* Atomic operations have been rewritten from scratch to make use
  of gcc builtins where possible. As a side-effect of this, calls
  to g_atomic_ API with explicit casts may now be problematic; if
  that happens to you, try first to remove the casts. Another
  side-effect of the rewrite is that g_atomic_int_exchange_and_add
3132 3133
  has been deprecated in favor of g_atomic_int_add.

Overview of changes from GLib 2.29.2 to 2.29.4
==============================================

* GDBus:
 - Includes several new types to support modeling D-Bus
   objects and interfaces more fully, and also introduces
   an 'object manager' pattern:
   GDBusInterface, GDBusObject, GDBusObjectManager
   These interfaces have client-side implementations:
   GDBusProxy, GDBusObjectProxy, GDBusObjectManagerClient
   And server-side implementations:
   GDBusInterfaceSkeleton, GDBusObjectSkeleton, GDBusObjectManagerServer
 - The new gdbus-codegen utility uses these new classes
   to generate C code and documentation from D-Bus interface
   descriptions in XML

* GTest:
 - There is now a g_test_fail() function to mark
   tests as failed

* GDesktopAppInfo
 - Now has a binding-friendly filename property
 - Other new API to more fully expose desktop file contents:
   g_desktop_app_info_get_categories(),
   g_desktop_app_info_get_generic_name()

* GHashTable:
 - Several optimizations to reduce space consumption of
   large hash tables, in particular tables that are used
   to store sets.

* Unix-specific APIs:
  GLib now installs a separate header, glib-unix.h, that is
  meant to collect Unix-specific APIs. For now, it contains
  g_unix_open_pipe(), g_unix_set_fd_non_blocking() for dealing
  with pipes and fds, as well as APIs to create mainloop
  sources which can trigger callbacks on certain Unix
  signals (SIGTERM, SIGHUP, SIGINT).

* Bugs fixed:
 631379 GDBus nonce-tcp test failing
 632631 GLib-CRITICAL **: g_variant_new_string: assertion `g_utf8_validate (string, -1, NULL)' failed
 635694 gdbus aborting due to unauthorized socket in DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS
 637561 Crash when using G_DBUS_SERVER_FLAGS_RUN_IN_THREAD
 642935 g_date_time_format() prints wrong value for %z and timezone -0800
 643134 g_dbus_message_copy
 644941 glib-unix: New Unix-specific API
 646013 g_hash_table_remove_all_nodes optimization
 646309 glib cannot be cross-compilled for mingw32
 646435 GTimeZone doesn't seem to be thread-safe
 646957 GIO chained calls don't work with a thread default context
 647594 README link to mailing list is broken
 647602 Cannot connect to remote message bus via TCP
 647746 The GSocketService documentation is incomplete.
 647826 API: gtester: Add g_test_fail()
 647903 GDesktopAppInfo: Add g_desktop_app_info_get_categories()
 648416 g_app_info_create_from_commandline ignores SUPPORTS_STARTUP_NOTIFICATION
 648423 Support G_DEBUG=trap-warnings
 648425 GDesktopAppInfo: Add "filename" property for bindings
 648966 Update g_unichar_iswide and g_unichar_iswide_cjk

* GDBus
 - Interface lookups are now happening in constant time
 - Signature checking and handling of various unexpected
   situations has been improved

* GVariant
 - The format accepted by the GVariant parser has beend documented
 - GVariant accepts G_VARIANT_TYPE_VARDICT for a{sv}

* GDateTime:
 - The return value of g_datetime_compare() has been fixed to
   match strcmp() semantics
 - In order to handle problems with changing timezones, a GTimeZoneMonitor
   has been added to GIO, and g_time_zone_refresh_local() can be
   called to update the cached information about the local timezone

* GOption now uses /proc/self/cmdline to set the program name instead
  and only falls back to "<unknown>" if that is unavailable

* GSettings:
 - The schema compiler now warns about references to non-existing schemas
