GLib 2.19.1 released

GLib 2.19.1 is now available for download at:

glib-2.19.1.tar.bz2 md5sum: 9309139a515408d9c99558d051c18302
glib-2.19.1.tar.gz  md5sum: eab90f5965f3d004b8787989be5cca85

This is the second development release leading up to GLib 2.20.


 * 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 2.18. If you have problems, you'll need
   to reinstall GLib 2.18.

 * GLib 2.20 will be source and binary compatible with
   the GLib 2.18 series; however, the new API additions
   in GLib 2.19.0 are not yet finalized, so there may
   be incompatibilities between this release and the final
   2.20 release. 

 * 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.

More information about GLib is available at:

An installation guide for the GTK+ libraries, including GLib, can
be found at:
