GLib-2.2.0 released

GLib-2.2.0 is now available for download at:

GLib is the low-level core library that forms the basis for projects
such as GTK+ and GNOME. It provides data structure handling for C,
portability wrappers, and interfaces for such runtime functionality as
an event loop, threads, dynamic loading, and an object system.

GLib-2.2 is a stable release adding an incremental improvement
in functionality over GLib-2.0 while maintaining binary and
source compatibility. New features include:

 * Inclusion of the Trio library (
   for string formatting on systems with a deficient printf() 

 * Support for cross-compilation of GLib.

 * New utility functions such as g_str_as_suffix(), and 

 * Improvements to the seeding method and random integer 
   generation algorithm for GRandom (see the README for notes 
   about the G_RANDOM_VERSION environment variable if you need to
   exactly reproduce sequences from GLib-2.0)

 * Documentation improvements.

 * Many bug fixes and small improvements.
