GLib 2.25.14

GLib 2.25.14 is now available for download at:


A development release leading to GLib 2.26.


 * 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 2.24. If you have problems, you'll need
  to reinstall GLib 2.24.

 * GLib 2.26 will be source and binary compatible with
  the GLib 2.24 series; however, the new API additions
  in GLib 2.25.x are not yet finalized, so there may
  be incompatibilities between this release and the final
  2.26 release. In particular, GApplication is expected
  to still undergo API changes before 2.26.

 * Bugs should be reported to
