GLib 2.9.4 released

GLib 2.9.4 is now available for download at:

glib-2.9.4.tar.bz2	md5sum: 467d473c2fd43e124bcab02b6548c135
glib-2.9.4.tar.gz	md5sum: 2852efbdd737949a6941e6082d183393

This is a development release leading up to GLib 2.10.


 * 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 2.8. If you have problems, you'll need
   to reinstall GLib 2.8.5.

 * GLib 2.10 will be source and binary compatible with
   the GLib 2.8.x series (for some caveats, see the
   README). At this point, the API additions in the
   2.9.x series are finished.

 * 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.

  Fix a problem with g_object_compat_control() which
  can lead to segfaults in GTK+ applications on 64bit

  Unused threads now fall back to the global pool after
  500 milliseconds, where they wait for another
  max-idle-time milliseconds. [Sebastian Wilhelmi]

* Fix a memory allocation problem in GKeyFile. [Morten
