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: Several minor bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: GLib can now be built with the bionic C library. GIcon can now be serialized to a GVariant. GApplication gained a busy state, for signaling this to a desktop. Support was added for explicitly canceling a gobject property binding. Performance improvements were made for signal argument handling. Further improvements and various bug fixes were made.
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.
Release Notes: Various bugs were fixed. The old codepage ABI (Windows only) was dropped.
