Overview of changes in GLib 2.59.0
==================================
* This will be the last development release with autotools support. As our
Meson support has been around since 2.56.x, and was used to release tarballs
in 2.58.x, the next development release (2.59.1) will drop autotools as used
to build GLib. The macros installed for other packages to use will remain.
* Add `G_TEST_OPTION_ISOLATE_DIRS` to redirect `XDG_*_HOME` to a temporary
directory for each unit test. (#538)
* Support `Property.EmitsChangedSignal` annotations in `gdbus-codegen`. (#542)
* Add `g_assert_cmpvariant()` API for unit tests. (#1191)
* Hide bind mounts from GIO mount listings. (#1271)
* Automatically realign data passed to `g_variant_new_from_bytes()` or
`g_variant_new_from_data()` if it is not correctly aligned. This prevents
misaligned accesses on architectures which don’t support them. Callers should
still aim to correctly align data to get higher performance. (#1342)
* Support `ld -b binary` (on platforms which support it; i.e. Linux) to provide
large pre-compiled `GResource` resources with a fast compilation time. (#1489)
* Unconditionally install GLib m4 macros, so that projects which depend on GLib
and which still build using autotools can continue to build even once GLib has
ported entirely to Meson. (#1520)
* Various fixes to the Meson build.
* Drop Python 2 support and require Python 3.4+. See discussion on
https://mail.gnome.org/archives/desktop-devel-list/2018-July/msg00004.html.
(!196)
* `GHashTable` performance and memory improvements for common cases. See
https://hpjansson.org/blag/2018/07/24/a-hash-table-re-hash/. (!208)
* Add flags that allow a `GApplication` to signal and replace a currently
running other instance of the same `GApplication`. This will be used for app
upgrades with flatpak. (!250)
* Autostart xdg-desktop-portal when using the network monitor and proxy monitor
portal backends. (!317)
* Add a g_task_set_name() API to allow `GTask`s to be described; useful for
debugging. (!384)
* Enable FreeBSD CI on every commit for upstream GLib. (!387)
* Various GVariant, GMarkup and GDBus fuzzing fixes, including buffer overflow
fixes. (!411)
* Various fixes to eliminate thread races, found by thread sanitizer (tsan).
* Deprecate TLS/DTLS rehandshaking, as it has been removed from the protocol in
TLS 1.3. (!478)
* Support reading arguments from a file with `glib-mkenums`, which is useful
for long argument lists due to having deeply nested build directories, on
systems with a low limit on the command line length. (!489)
* Make `g_environ_*()` case-insensitive on Windows, as the environment itself
is case-insensitive on Windows. (!500)
* Add Application Layer Protocol Negotiation (ALPN) support to `GTlsConnection`
and `GDtlsConnection`, so that higher layer protocols can be negotiated when
setting up a TLS connection, without additional round trips and latency. This
is needed for eventual HTTP/2 support. (!520)
* Add support for TPM keys in PEM files when loading TLS certificates. (!522)
* Add a `GRecMutexLocker` auto-pointer wrapper for `GRecMutex`. (!528)
