This is 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 2.25.6 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.

Overview of Changes from GLib 2.25.6 to GLib 2.25.7

* NOTE: API/ABI breaks since 2.25.6 release:
  - g_dbus_connection_sync{,_sync} takes a new 'reply_type' argument
  - GSettingsBackendClass 'list' virtual function changed

  GSettings backends and things using GDBus may need to be rebuilt.

* GDBus: many build-related fixes

* GDBus (service): return a DBus error when receiving a method call for
  an unknown interface.

* GSettings: fix 'make install' bug in gsettings.m4 for generated schema

* GSettings: avoid non-portable use of LC_MESSAGES

* better approach to handling man pages

* Bugs fixed:

 619391 send-with-reply should have expected result signature
 618616 Use stack-allocated GVariantBuilders
 617004 Build with "--disable-nls" fails under MinGW/Win32
