This is a development release loading up to GLib-2.4. Changes
since GLib-2.3.1 consist manly of bug fixes and small API
enhancements. The default seeding of GRand is much improved
thanks to work by George Lebl.


 * This is unstable development release. While it has had
   fairly extensive testing, there are certainly plenty of bugs
   remaining to be found. This release should not be used
   in production.

 * Installing this version will overwrite your existing
   copy of GLib-2.2. If you have problems, you'll need
   to reinstall GLib-2.2.4.

 * GLib-2.4 will be source and binary compatible with
   the GLib-2.2.x series; however, the new API additions
   in GLib-2.2.x are not yet absolutely finalized, so there 
   may be incompatibities between this release and the final
   2.2 release.

 * Remaining API issues for GLib-2.4 can be found with following
   bugzilla query:

portability wrappers, and interfaces for such runtime functionality as
an event loop, threads, dynamic loading, and an object system.
