This is another development release leading to 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. The new API additions in GLib 
   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
