GLib 2.17.7 released

GLib 2.17.7 is now available for download at:

glib-2.17.7.tar.bz2	md5sum: 50abcc857a93498fe7d8d0bda2ed2805
glib-2.17.7.tar.gz	md5sum: 135f08f90198690da27e2194654bd15c

This is another development release leading up to GLib 2.18.


 * 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 2.16. If you have problems, you'll need
   to reinstall GLib 2.16.

 * GLib 2.18 will be source and binary compatible with
   the GLib 2.16 series. The new API additions in GLib 2.17 
   are finalized at this point. Except for unforeseen 
   last-minute problems, there should be no more API
   changes between this release and the final 2.18 release. 

 * Bugs should be reported to

About GLib
