* 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
37 38
  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

Overview of Changes from GLib 2.27.2 to 2.27.3
==============================================

* The GTimeSpec type that was introduced in the 2.27.2 has been
  dropped again in favour of APIs that return microseconds as
  64-bit integer.
  Affected functions:
  g_source_get_time
  g_periodic_unblock
  g_get_monotonic_time
  g_get_real_time
  The similar GTimeVal struct is still around, but its use is
  discouraged.

* GTimer is now using monotonic time unconditionally

* There are some new functions to facilitate error reporting
  in async GIO APIs:
  g_simple_async_result_take_error
  g_simple_async_result_new_take_error
  g_simple_async_report_take_gerror_in_idle

* There is new convenience API to us GVariant dictionaries:
  g_variant_lookup

* It is now possible to delay sending match rules to the
  D-Bus daemon in GDBus:
  G_DBUS_SIGNAL_FLAGS_NO_MATCH_RULE

* Support has been added for XDG_RUNTIME_DIR:
  g_get_user_runtime_dir

* Various fixes for Win64/MSVC builds have been committed

* Bugs fixed:
 620263 Add g_clear_object, g_clear_pointer, g_clear_boxed
 633075 update Project Files and sources for MSVC 2008/C89
 633381 gsettings Makefile rules should handle empty list...
 633685 Use g_simple_async_result_{new_,}take_error
 633686 Add g_simple_async_report_take_gerror_in_idle

* Translation updates:
  Belarusian
  Galician
  Hebrew
  Punjabi
  Spanish

Overview of Changes from GLib 2.27.1 to 2.27.2
==============================================

* GApplication
 - Export actions over DBus and support activating them from remote instances
 - Support environment passing

* GSettings
 - The gsettings utility has a list-recursively command
 - The gsettings utility has commandline completion for enum values

* GLib is now linked against librt and uses monotonic time for
  timeouts and GPeriod sources. GSource has a new g_source_get_time()
  which returns monotonic time, and g_source_get_current_time() has
  been deprecated

* Bugs fixed:
 158725 free linked list with data
 626320 GVariant: Avoid locking in g_variant_get_child_value() if possible
 629247 add gsimpleasyncresult methods to take over a GError

Overview of Changes from GLib 2.27.0 to 2.27.1
==============================================

* GDateTime now has full week number support.
  New API: g_date_time_get_week_numbering_year

* The GSettings schema compiler will now skip over
  broken .xml schema files instead of aborting altogether

* GSettings now works properly on bigendian systems

* GSettings has more complete support for ranges
  New API:
    g_settings_get_range
    g_settings_range_check
  The gsettings commandline tool supports ranges too.

* GApplication has been rewritten; see the API docs for details
  and examples. The action support is not complete yet.

* The GLib mainloop has gained 'dispatch to context' functionality,
  which can replace manually created idles in many cases.
  New API:
    g_main_context_invoke
    g_main_context_invoke_full

* The gio-desktop-app-info-lookup extension point has been
  removed from GIO. GIO now uses x-scheme-handler mimetypes when
  looking for default applications.

* On win32, make g_get_user_data_dir() return the CSIDL_LOCAL_APPDATA
  folder on Windows, and not CSIDL_PERSONAL. This matches what Qt does,
  and has been widely requested. Also make g_get_user_config_dir() return
  this and not the (roaming) CSIDL_APPDATA folder.

* A periodic event clock has been added in GIO: GPeriodic. Note that this
  API is still experimental and expected to undergo changes before it
  will be incorporated into a stable GLib release. Use at your own risk.

Bug fixes:
 613822 gobject signal connect/disconnect not thread safe
 618737 "dispatch to context" functionality
 620710 g_get_user_data_dir() uses CSIDL_PERSONAL and not CSIDL_APPDATA
 623400 acquire context before dispatching
 627126 gsettings schema files don't get installed on FreeBSD
 627171 g_socket_new_from_fd() doesn't set the right protocol
 628876 Wrong error description
 628937 gracefully handle broken schemas
 629274 GNetworkService doesn't fallback when there is no SRV record
 629289 g_error() used wrong, produces core dump
 629687 leaks class refcount in gsocketcontrolmessage
 629849 GLib-CRITICAL **: g_source_get_context: assertion `!SOURCE_...
 629945 GDBus deadlock in g_bus_get_sync()
 630000 g_date_time_difference

 630797 docs mention non-existent g_object_dispose()
 630968 gschema-compile problems on power g5
 631263 GSettings needs range/choice APIs
 631264 gsettings-tool choice/range support

  - add a partial workaround for GObject bug 627724.
  - very many memory leaks fixed

GVariant:
  - check for size == 0 in g_variant_get_bytestring to avoid a crash

Overview of Changes from GLib 2.25.12 to GLib 2.25.13
=====================================================

+-------------------------------------------------------------------+
|   WARNING: There have been no breaks in API or ABI.  Weird, eh?   |
+-------------------------------------------------------------------+

The primary purpose of this release is to fix a serious problem with
glib 2.25.12: glibconfig.h (as generated on a Fedora amd64 system) was
being distributed in the tarball.  It was being used to build some parts
of glib on other systems (eg: 32bit ones).  This was causing some very
serious problems.

There have been many other improvements, however:

 Build and testing:
  - vastly improved test coverage
  - old tests moved to the gtester framework
  - gtester Makefile modified so that the tests only run once
  - cleanup of how we handle includes while building glib

 GVariant:
  - add a g_return_if_fail (utf8) to g_variant_new_string()

 GDBus:
  - perform extra sanity checks when serialising messages
  - add API to query and set the byteorder of a GDBusMessage
  - improve debug output, add some extra options
  - if exiting due to the bus disconnecting us, print an error message
    explaining why
  - sort property names correctly
  - don't bother sending RemoveMatch when we will close the connection
    anyway
  - use effective uid/gid for credential passing

 GSettings:
  - add G_SETTINGS_BIND_INVERT_BOOLEAN for inverting boolean bindings
    without mapping functions
  - mark all strings in the schema compiler for translation

 Binding:
  - improve closure support for bindings
  - copy GSettings INVERT_BOOLEAN flag

 Other:
  - fix another complicated GCancellable deadlock possibility

Bugs closed:
 599590 glib build doesn't look for correct pkg-config
 619026 avoid warning in gutils.h when using gcc with -Wconversion

Overview of Changes from GLib 2.25.11 to GLib 2.25.12
=====================================================

+-------------------------------------------------------------------+
| WARNING: There have been many API changes in GDBus -- sending     |
| messages, subscribing to signals, closing connections and         |
| registering subtrees are affected.  The ABI for GSettingsBackend  |
| has also been changed.  For both reasons, a new dconf release is  |
| required (and will be along soon).                                |
+-------------------------------------------------------------------+

Build:
  - cleanup automake setup
  - rename configure.in to configure.ac
  - various docs fixups
  - move glibconfig.h to glib/
  - disable dtrace support on Mac OS (which has incompatible 'dtrace')

GSettings:
  - add support for vendor override files (to change the default values
    in a schema)
  - change GSettingsBackend vtable
  - add g_settings_reset()
  - support binding to G_TYPE_STRV properties

GDBus:
  - many bug fixes, including a serialisation fix
  - stop handling incoming connections as soon as stop() is called
  - proper support for file descriptor passing
  - new flags parameter for sending messages
  - new flags parameter for subscribing to signals
  - always reset the message serial when sending a message unless
    G_DBUS_SEND_MESSAGE_FLAGS_PRESERVE_SERIAL is given
  - constness fixes for introspection structures
  - clean ups to subtree registration API

Other:
  - fix divide by zero bug in g_malloc_n functions
  - GIO: don't blindly assume that SOCK_CLOEXEC is supported
  - make GObject property notify freezes threadsafe
  - GIO: clean up credentials passing
  - GApplication: make default-quit not apply if register=FALSE

Overview of Changes from GLib 2.25.10 to GLib 2.25.11
=====================================================

+-------------------------------------------------------------------+
| WARNING: There have been minor API changes in GDBus and GVariant. |
| These API changes will not affect many users, but they do require |
| a new version of GTK+ to be installed.                            |
+-------------------------------------------------------------------+

Build:
  - add a --disable-Bsymbolic configure flag to disable linking with
    -Bsymbolic-functions
  - this release sees the complete removal of the old 'g*alias' hacks
  - honour the NOCONFIGURE environment variable from autogen.sh
  - use proper feature test macros for isnan
  - use pkg-config to check for zlib
  - add ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS to Makefile.am

GDBus:
  - hide Class and instance structures for all GDBus types except
    GDBusProxy.  This breaks API by preventing subclassing, but probably
    nobody was doing that.
  - add new GDBusConnection call to support flushing all pending
    outgoing messages
  - change the register_object API to add a reference to the
    GDBusInterfaceInfo object so the caller need not keep it alive
    themselves
  - don't rewrite the serial number when sending messages that already
    have a serial number
  - better error checking for DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS environment
    variable
  - switch to g_parse_debug_string for G_DBUS_DEBUG and add a lot of new
    flags
  - add support for temporarily freezing a freshly created
    GDBusConnection.  Do this until after the ::new-connection signal
    has finished running on GDBus services.
  - never require non-closed connections (the user is incapable of doing
    this due to the obvious race)
  - remove weird/misleading redundant check on NameOwnerChanged signal
  - emit GDBusProxy::g-properties-changed on NameOwnerChanged

GVariant:
  - the 'g_variant_{new,get}_byte_array' APIs have been removed
  - g_variant_{new,get,dup}_bytestring has been added, with different
    arguments and different behaviour
  - g_variant_{new,get,dup}_bytestring_array has been added, doing
    essentially the same thing as the 'strv' functions, but with byte
    strings instead of utf8 strings
  - G_VARIANT_TYPE_BYTESTRING ('ay'), BYTESTRING_ARRAY ('aay') and
    STRING_ARRAY ('as') constants have been added
  - the undocumented behaviour that g_variant_get_strv() deserialised
    arrays of object paths or signature strings has been dropped
  - additional varargs support for converting bytestrings or bytestring
    arrays with ^ay ^aay ^&ay and ^a&ay
  - improved gobject-introspection annotation
  - fix a problem with GBuffer calling g_slice_free for the wrong type
  - fix leaks in the type inferencing code of the parser

GSettings:
  - improved documentation
  - updated schema XML DTD, now xincluded into the docs
  - added support for schemas that extend other schemas (using the
    'extends=' attribute).  Values of keys in the base schema can be
    overridden using <override>.
  - added theoretical support for lists (using the 'list-of=' attribute)
  - lots of new tests
  - add support for flags (implemented similarly to enums)
  - add support for generating .enums.xml files to gsettings.m4:
      gsettings_ENUM_NAMESPACE = org.example.myapp
      gsettings_ENUM_FILES = ../path/to/*.h
    will generate org.example.myapp.enums.xml with mappings for all
    enums and flags in the specified .h files.
  - warn with g_message() if the 'memory' backend is used by default
    (ie: because no other GSettings backends are installed)
  - fix get_property() for GSettings::schema
  - command line tool: fix a bug that prevented non-basic values from
    being set due to a premature free
  - command line tool: bash completion support
  - chain up in _finalize
  - add a new g_settings_get_mapped API to read settings that require
    post-processing
  - retry with the translated or schema default value if the
    GSettingsBindGetMapping function fails
  - schema compiler: never fail due to empty schema directories (but
    warn)
  - peek rather than ref/unref the GEnumClass in the mapping function
  - schema compiler: compile *.enums.xml before *.gschemas.xml to ensure
    that we have all the enums that the schemas may reference
  - schema compiler: improve accuracy of line numbers in error reports
  - fix crashes in the keyfile backend caused by invalid group names in
    the keyfile

Other:
  - always intern GBinding prop names
  - base64: remove asserts preventing conversion of empty strings
  - document NULL special-cases for GValueArray
  - GNode docs improvements
  - improve detection of 'system internal' mounts
  - fix leaks in the inotify GFileMonitor implementation
  - annotate all custom GIO GSources to improve debugging (e.g. using
    SystemTap)

Tests:
  - Turn on glibc malloc checking features for make check
  - improvements for GSettings tests, plus new tests
  - improved tests for GKeyfile
  - new tests for GDir, GSList, GSList, GAppLaunchContext,
    CharsetConverter, GIcon, ...
  - move some tests to GTester (tree tests, uri tests)
  - generally, really an awful lot of new tests
  - don't try to allocate 2gigs of memory anymore for the array test

 552363 g_value_array_{insert,prepend,append}'s special cases for NULL
 561248 Improve return value description from g_node_prev/next_sibling()
 570036 Add ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS to Makefile.am
 576833 g_sprintf add a reference to g_strdup_printf
 576854 g_strconcat() documentation should provide a hint about bad l10n
 582227 reference: add other URI functions to 'URI Functions' section
 599223 should provide g_spawn_* variants that take a GAppLaunchContext
 610784 array test failing
 613057 Leak in inotify GFileMonitor implementation
 620536 Annotate all custom GIO GSource using g_source_set_name
 620913 More control with G_DBUS_DEBUG
 622124 implement flags
 622127 GSettings extended key validation
 622128 retry with default value for failed mapping
 622294 More annotations for GVariant
 622565 glib-compile-schemas fails when no schemas
 622600 Fix missing prototype warning
 622813 gsettings mapping & enum buglet
 623142 Ensure ::new-connection runs before processing D-Bus messages
 623143 Never require non-closed connections
 623319 use g_parse_debug_string for dbus debug flags
 623401 process enums first
 623402 schema compiler reports wrong line numbers
 623407 g_keyfile_settings_backend_new crashes with the key "/"
 623473 zlib should be checked with pkg-config
 623537 GDBusProxy has weird checking on NameOwnerChanged
 623538 GDBusProxy::g-properties-changed emission for corner cases
 623692 directory with file at multiple MLS levels may display empty
 623720 gschema.dtd does not contain enum definitions
 623770 quoting of expand_macro in gdesktopappinfo.c
 623772 gdesktopappinfo.c, function child_setup
 623780 g_unix_is_mount_path_system_internal
 623954 g_settings_finalize
 623955 Dubious return values

* GApplication
 - Switch to using variants for timestamps
 - Use GInitable

 - The GVariant gtype G_TYPE_VARIANT was changed from boxed
   to fundamental. We believe there were no existing users
   of the boxed type, so this should not cause any applications
   to break.

* The GSettings framework has been merged. This provides the API to
  replace GConf. DConf will provide a backend implementation for it.
  GConf will also provide a backend implementation to ease the
  transition. We provide utilities to assist with schema conversion
  and data migration, as well as a porting guide.

* We are now using gcc builtins for atomic operations when available

* g_assert() grew the ability to store assertions in core dumps

* GIO supports lazy loading of GIO modules, and there is a new
  gio-querymodule utility that goes along with this.
  Packagers will need to adapt to this.

* Threading changes:
 - The requirements for g_thread_init() have been relaxed slightly,
   it can be called multiple times, and does not have to be the first
   call.
 - GObject now links to GThread and threads are enabled automatically
   when g_type_init() is called.
 - Thread-safety issues with boxed types in GObject have been fixed.

* GObject:
 - Another bunch of performance work has landed

Overview of Changes from GLib 2.22.x to GLib 2.23.0
===================================================

* GIO:
 - GConverter: a generic interface for stateful conversions of data,
   suitable for charset conversion, compression, decompression, regexp
   replacement. Concrete implementations are GCharsetConverter,
   GZlibCompressor and GZlibDecompressor. GConverterInputStream,
   GConverterOutputStream are stream implementations that convert data
   while loading or saving it.
 - GMounts can now have a 'default location': a path that reflects
   the main entry point for the user (e.g. the home directory).
 - As a consequence of the compression support, GIO depends on zlib now.

* GObject:
 - G_IMPLEMENT_INTERFACE_DYNAMIC: a convenience macro for adding
   interfaces to dynamic types.

* GModule:
 - The -pthread flag has been added to all gmodule .pc files, because
   it is not generally permissible to load modules that are linked
   against libpthread if the program has not been compiled with threading
   support.

* Bugs fixed:
 601637 GUnixFDMessage should contain a GUnixFDList
 585566 GSocketListener API issues
 572252 Bug in g_file_test() function.

Overview of Changes from GLib 2.18.1 to GLib 2.19.0
===================================================

* Rewrite GHashTable to use open addressing with quadratic probing instead 
  of chaining. This has the potential to reduce memory fragmentation 
  significantly, while being slightly faster due to better locality and 
  no need to call alloc/free functions for nodes. Benchmarks suggest it 
  also uses less memory overall.

* Make g_poll available as public api

* New macros g_assert_error and g_assert_no_error to assert 
  that a GError is set or unset

* g_cancellable_make_pollfd: New method to make a GPollFD for a cancellable

* g_app_info_can_delete, g_app_info_delete, g_app_info_reset_type_associations:
  New functions to clean up app infos and content types

* When launching applications, always pass fuse file:// uris when possible,
  and let gio convert such uris back to gio uris.

* Bugs fixed:
 505361 gunixinputstream.c assumes poll() available
 509446 portable blocking gio cancellation

* On Solaris, use FEN for file monitoring in GIO

* Use the GIO_EXTRA_MODULES environment variable to find
  additional GIO modules 

* G_GNUC_ALLOC_SIZE: New macro that wraps the gcc alloc_size
  function attribute

* g_checksum_reset: New function to reset the state of a GChecksum 

* g_unix_mount_monitor_set_rate_limit: New function to limit the 
  rate at which events are reported

* g_file_query_file_type: New utility function to query the type of
  a file
