This is the fourth 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 are not yet finalized, so there may
  be incompatibilities between this release and the final
  2.20 release.

 * Bugs should be reported to
