Overview of changes in GLib 2.67.1
==================================

* Deprecate `g_time_zone_new()` in favour of `g_time_zone_new_identifier()`,
  which makes error checking easier (#553)

* Remove `volatile` from various public APIs, including `G_DEFINE_*`. You should
  adjust your code to not use `volatile` for atomic variables, `GOnce`
  variables, or mostly anything else (see
  http://isvolatileusefulwiththreads.in/c/). (#600)

* Support passing file handles to `gdbus` command line tool (work by
  Norbert Pocs and Tim Waugh) (#961)

* Add `g_assert_cmpstrv()` test convenience function (work by Niels De Graef) (#2015)

* Changes to the behaviour of the `G_URI_FLAGS_SCHEME_NORMALIZE` scheme
  normalization flag in `GUri` (work by Carlos Garcia Campos) (#2257, !1716)

* Add new `--run-prefix` and `--skip-prefix` options to GTest, to allow running
  or skipping test suites by prefix (work by Frederic Martinsons) (!1738)

* Fix thread-safety of `GBinding`; see the updated documentation for
  `g_object_bind_property()` for full details — if your code uses `GBinding`
  across threads, you should re-check it against the latest documentation, use
  `g_binding_unbind()` rather than implicitly dropping the binding with your
  last `g_object_unref()` call, and use `g_binding_dup_source()`/`g_binding_dup_target()`
  instead of `g_binding_get_source()`/`g_binding_get_target()`
  (work by Sebastian Dröge) (!1745)
