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: 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: 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.

Release Notes: The incompatible change to the ->constructed() vfunc was reverted. It is no longer permitted to add interfaces to a class after the first instantiation (or more strictly: after g_type_class_ref()). Two accidentally exported private symbols were properly hidden. GIO now has kqueue support for GFileMonitor (BSDs, Mac OS). A new API g_variant_new_from_bytes() was introduced. UNIX signal sources now allow watching SIGUSR1 and SIGUSR2. Warnings were cleaned up more pedantically. GTask changes were made to avoid a deadlock. URL-encoding of trashed files was fixed.

Release Notes: Signal handlers connected with g_signal_connect_object() are now automatically disconnected on target object destruction. The ->constructed vfunc is now called after all properties are set. g_type_init() is no longer necessary, and has been deprecated. GTask, a new GAsyncResult implementation, has been introduced. Unicode has been updated to 6.2. Various bugfixes and minor improvements have been made.

Release Notes: GSeekable and GPollable are now more widely implemented by stream classes. GIO input and output stream classes have grown GBytes-based methods. GApplication now has hooks to register D-Bus objects before the bus name is taken. Thumbnails are now in XDG_CACHE_HOME. Several new APIs have been introduced. Many bugfixes, clean-ups, and performance improvements have been made.

Release Notes: A security issue, where dbus-launch was run from setuid binaries, was fixed. This was reported as CVE-2012-3524. A new API for getting the icon name for a MIME type, g_content_type_get_generic_icon_name(), was added. GVFS_INOTIFY_DIAG was dropped. Several introspection fixes were made. Further minor bugs were fixed. Documentation was improved. Translations were updated.

Release Notes: A G_DEFINE_QUARK macro was added. Symbolic icon support to drive, volume, and mount, file, and content types was added. An API to allow thread-safe access to the same qdata item was implemented. Many minor bugs were fixed.
