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.

GLib 2.12 is a stable release adding an incremental improvement
in functionality over GLib 2.10 while maintaining binary and
source compatibility. 

Major new features include:

 * The Unicode support has been updated to Unicode 5.

 * GBookmarkFile: a parser for files containing bookmarks
   stored using the Desktop Bookmark specification 

 * Base64 encoding support

For more details and lists of fixed bugs, see the
announcements of the 2.11.x development releases:
