Release Notes: Threading was improved, and g_thread_init() was made easier to use. GObject now links to GThread, and threads are enabled automatically when g_type_init() is called. Thread-safety issues with boxed types in GObject were fixed. GType now has a G_DEFINE_INTERFACE convenience macro. GIO supports lazy loading of GIO modules, and there is a new gio-querymodule utility that goes along with this. GIO uses splice(2) to transfer data between file descriptors without extraneous copies. The GVariant variant data type was added. Many other enhancements and minor bugfixes were made.
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.
Release Notes: Various bugs were fixed. The old codepage ABI (Windows only) was dropped.
Release Notes: Type modules are now never unloaded. GSimpleProxyResolver was added. Other minor enhancements and fixes were made.
Release Notes: GUnixFdSource was added as a new method to add file descriptors to the main loop. g_source_set_ready_time() was added for allowing to mark a source to become ready at a specified monotonic time. The internal visibility handling of GLib was reworked. Many bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: New APIs g_get_num_processors() and g_application_command_line_get_stdin() have been added. More timezone offset formats can now be parsed. GParamSpec constructors have been made introspectable. Adding interfaces after class_init is now disallowed. Minor bugs have been fixed.
