Overview of changes in GLib 2.57.3
* G_GNUC_MALLOC’s definition has been tightened up to match an updated
definition from GCC. Many uses of G_GNUC_MALLOC which were previously
appropriate may cause miscompilation with newer GCC versions. Check your uses
of it against the updated documentation. See #1465.
* Many minor documentation fixes.
* Fix for gint64 and int64_t compatibility on macOS and BSD. See #972.
* Fix free space metadata on some file systems (notably FAT). See #328.
* Support installed-tests with our Meson build system. See #1444.
* Forbid @filename@/@basename@ in glib-mkenums templates, which is a change to
its long-standing behaviour (which was long-standing nonsensical). See !241.
* Various stat() fixes on Windows. See #1452, #1476.
* MinGW-w64 ABI warning: In case you build 64 bit glib without LFS support by
passing --disable-largefile (not the default) and use GStatBuf, you need to
rebuild your application as the size of GStatBuf has changed for this case.
See #1476
See #1476.
* Improve TAP compatibility of g_test_incomplete(). See #1474.
* Change fallback preferences when loading icons. See !72.
