GLib 2.15.2 released

GLib 2.15.2 is now available for download at:

glib-2.15.2.tar.bz2 md5sum: 633243dd337464a61336146ab862a646
glib-2.15.2.tar.gz  md5sum: 3d2b5268c96bc09e7bb5e82637987f8f

This is the third development release leading up to GLib 2.16.


 * 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 2.14. If you have problems, you'll need
   to reinstall GLib 2.14.

 * GLib 2.16 will be source and binary compatible with
   the GLib 2.14 series. The new API in GLib should be 
   stable at this point; we are still expecting to do
   some minor API additions in GIO, so there may be 
   incompatibilities between this release and the final
   2.16 release.

 * Bugs should be reported to
