GLib 2.25.15

GLib 2.25.15 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.

 * Bugs should be reported to

About GLib

GLib is the low-level core library that forms the basis for projects
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.

More information about GLib is available at:

An installation guide for the GTK+ libraries, including GLib, can

Overview of Changes from GLib 2.25.14 to GLib 2.25.15

 * GIO
  - Memory leak fixes
  - The GZip(De}Compressor can now process header information
  - Support for network proxies has been added, with the GProxy
    interface and the gio-proxy-resolver extension point. GIO
    includes SOCKSv4 and SOCKSv5 implementations, and libproxy
    is also going to provide an implementation of this extension
  - There are GAction and GActionGroup interfaces now, which will
    be used in GApplication in the near future.

 * GObject
  - There are now convenience macros for defining boxed and
    pointer types

 * GDBus
  - Memory leak fixes
  - GDBusProxy for well-known names can now auto-restart
    the service if the name owner disapperas
  - Filter functions are now allowed to modify messages

 * GLib
  - GDateTime is a replacement for GDate that supports time
    and timezone information.
