GLib 2.17.3 released

GLib 2.17.3 is now available for download at:

glib-2.17.3.tar.bz2	md5sum: 1683dcb0b5fc865833b01daad8026924
glib-2.17.3.tar.gz	md5sum: 8c5ac7d6c6f2cc21b742714e19638960

This is the fourth 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; however, the new API additions
   in GLib 2.17.1 are not yet finalized, so there may
   be incompatibilities between this release and the final
   2.18 release. 

 * Bugs should be reported to
