    Overview of changes in GLib 2.61.0

    • Changes to iconv configure options, including the default iconv implementation on macOS — distributors may need to check their configure scripts (#1557)

    • Build fixes when building GLib with G_DISABLE_ASSERT defined (#1708)

    • Fix documentation for gdbus-tool wait to use correct units (#1737)

    • Improvements to symlink handling on Windows (!269)

    • Add exception handling for crashes on Windows (!582)

    • Set G_WITH_CYGWIN again when GLib is built on Cygwin (this was a regression from the autotools build) (!736)

    • Use GCocoaNotificationBackend by default on macOS, rather than GGtkNotificationBackend (!745)

    • Use Windows symbol visibility when GLib is built on Cygwin, as PE binaries are subject to W32 visibility mechanics — this affects the definition of _GLIB_EXTERN (!752)

    Overview of changes in GLib 2.59.1

    • Autotools support is gone. (!580)

    • Allow polling more than 64 handles on win32 using g_poll(). (#1071)

    • Tag various tests as ‘flaky’. These are no longer run routinely on our upstream CI machines, and downstream packagers may want to not run them (or not treat those test failures as package build failures) on their test machines either. They are in the flaky test suite. (!579)

    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 GTasks 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)

    Overview of changes in GLib 2.58.0

    • Tarball built with ninja dist, so if you want to build this release with autotools (which is supported), you will need to re-run autogen.sh. This release, and all micro releases in the 2.58.x series, support being built with Meson or autotools. See: https://mail.gnome.org/archives/gtk-devel-list/2018-June/msg00012.html
    • Fix cancellation of g_subprocess_communicate_async() calls. See !266.
    • Drop support for the __int64 type, which further breaks compilation on old MSVC versions (before VS2013). See #1313.
    • Expose GSettings schema directory in gio-2.0.pc as schemasdir. See !274.
    • Support v3 of the xdg-desktop-portal network monitor API. See !265, !279.
    • Fix G_MODULE_SUFFIX on macOS when GLib is built with Meson — it should be so rather than dylib. Projects that use Meson and the g_module_build_path() API such as glib-networking should pass name_suffix: to shared_module() to ensure that plugins continue to be called libfoo.so on macOS. See !280.

    Bugs fixed:

    • !280 meson: Always set G_MODULE_SUFFIX to so on macOS
    • !266 subprocess: Fix communicate_cancelled signature
    • !279 Revert "Add a gnet utility" (see !265)
    • !265 Network monitor again
    • !274 gio: Provide schemas directory information in pkg-config file
    • !239 gvariant: Fix more bounds checking in GVariant text format parser
    • !195 garray: add overflow checks before expanding array
    • #1497 g_strdup_printf warns on invalid format specifier with G_GUINT64_FORMAT on Win32
    • !270 autotools: remove support for the __int64 type. See #1313
    • !267 ci: Add an autotools job
