Release Notes: Byte-swap macros for gsize and gssize were added. GUtf8InputStream, an input stream that performs UTF-8 validation, was implemented for GIO. GObject performance was improved through faster construction of simple objects, lock-free and constant-time interface lookup, and reduced locking overhead when dealing with types. GType now has a G_DEFINE_INTERFACE convenience macro. Several bugs were fixed.

Release Notes: Minor bugs were fixed.

Release Notes: This stable release finalizes the changes from the 2.35 development series. Signal handlers connected with g_signal_connect_object() are now automatically disconnected on target object destruction. GIO now has kqueue support for GFileMonitor (BSDs and Mac OS). UNIX signal sources now allow watching SIGUSR1 and SIGUSR2. In g_get_home_dir(), the $HOME variable is no longer ignored, and taken into consideration in favor of GECOS entries. GUnixFdSource was added as a new method to add file descriptors to the main loop. Further new APIs were added. Many bugs were fixed.
