This is the second development release leading up to GLib 2.8.  


 * 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 2.6. If you have problems, you'll need
   to reinstall GLib 2.6.5.

 * GLib 2.8 will be source and binary compatible with
   the GLib 2.6.x series. The new API additions in GLib 
   2.7.x are finalized at this point, and GLib 2.7.x 
   should be considered API frozen. Unless serious issues
   with the new APIs come up, there will be no API 
   changes between this release and the 2.8.0 release.

 * Remaining issues for GLib 2.8 can be found with the 
   following bugzilla query:
