This is the fourth development release leading up to GLib 2.14.


 * This is unstable development release. While it has had
   a bit of 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 2.12. If you have problems, you'll need
   to reinstall GLib 2.12.

 * GLib 2.14 will be source and binary compatible with
   the GLib 2.12 series; however, the new API additions
   in GLib 2.13.3 are finalized at this point. However, 
   there may still be incompatibilities between this 
   release and the final 2.14 release, if problems with
   the new API are discovered.

 * Bugs should be reported to

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.
