glib 2.25.13 released


Due to a rather serious packaging bug in glib 2.25.12, I'm making a
quick 2.25.13 release.  You should not use glib 2.25.12.

I've made some changes to address that problem and hopefully prevent
similar problems from happening again.  I looked over the package and it
seems to be fine, but please be on the lookout for any possible issues
that I introduced with the new changes.

There should be no API/ABI break time time around (at least compared to
last time).

We still expect to break GApplication API soon -- but that has been
pushed to 2.25.14 most likely (which should come some time next week or
the one after).

Here's the news:

Overview of Changes from GLib 2.25.12 to GLib 2.25.13

|   WARNING: There have been no breaks in API or ABI.  Weird, eh?   |

The primary purpose of this release is to fix a serious problem with
glib 2.25.12: glibconfig.h (as generated on a Fedora amd64 system) was
being distributed in the tarball.  It was being used to build some parts
of glib on other systems (eg: 32bit ones).  This was causing some very
serious problems.

There have been many other improvements, however:

 Build and testing:
  - vastly improved test coverage
  - old tests moved to the gtester framework
  - gtester Makefile modified so that the tests only run once
  - cleanup of how we handle includes while building glib

  - add a g_return_if_fail (utf8) to g_variant_new_string()

  - perform extra sanity checks when serialising messages
  - add API to query and set the byteorder of a GDBusMessage
  - improve debug output, add some extra options
  - if exiting due to the bus disconnecting us, print an error message
    explaining why
  - sort property names correctly
  - don't bother sending RemoveMatch when we will close the connection
  - use effective uid/gid for credential passing

  - add G_SETTINGS_BIND_INVERT_BOOLEAN for inverting boolean bindings
    without mapping functions
  - mark all strings in the schema compiler for translation

  - improve closure support for bindings
  - copy GSettings INVERT_BOOLEAN flag

  - fix another complicated GCancellable deadlock possibility
