About GLib

GLib is a library of support routines for C programming used
by the GTK+ toolkit, by the GNOME desktop environment, and
quite a few other projects. It includes data structures
such as lists and hash tables, an event loop, a portable
dynamic module loading mechanism, and many utility functions
for increased portability and convenience.

GLib is licensed under the GNU Lesser General Public License.

Overview of Changes in GLib 1.2.9

* Move include files into a glib-1-2/ subdir to support parallel
  installation with GLib-2.0. If you are installing from source
  on top of a previous version, you should to remove $(includedir)/glib.h
  $(includedir)/module.h manually before installing the new version.
* Fix warnings about varargs macros with recent GCC versions
* Miscellaneous important bug fixes 
  (g_strncasecmp, some g_printf_string_upper_bound fixes)
* Addition of .pc files

Installation Note

Between GLib-1.2.8 and GLib-1.2.9, the include files for GLib
have been moved to $(includedir)/gtk-1-2/ to allow parallel installations
of GLib-1.2 and GLib-2.0 to work correctly. If you are installing
on top of an old installation of GLib, you should remove the files:


Before running 'make install'. Some other libraries that depend
on GLib may also hard-code the GLib header file location into
their configuration files and may need to be rebuilt to work
correctly with GLib-1.2.9.
