GLib 2.29.6

GLib 2.29.6 is now available for download at:


The is another development snapshot of the 2.29 series.

Overview of changes from GLib 2.29.4 to 2.29.6

* Atomic operations have been rewritten from scratch to make use
  of gcc builtins where possible. As a side-effect of this, calls
  to g_atomic_ API with explicit casts may now be problematic; if
  that happens to you, try first to remove the casts. Another
  side-effect of the rewrite is that g_atomic_int_exchange_and_add
  has been deprecated in favor of g_atomic_int_add.

* A full set of atomic operations on pointers has been added,
  including bit locks in pointer-size locations.

* Access to quarks is now lockless

* GObject data scalability has been greatly improved

* g_data_time_format now supports alternative digits and padding

* Introspection improvements:
 - Add a boxed type for GVariantBuilder
 - Annotation fixes in GDBus, GVariant, g_base64_
