  remaining to be found. This release should not be used
  in production.

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

  the GLib 2.18 series; the new API additions in GLib 2.19
  are finalized at this point.

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.

Overview of Changes from GLib 2.19.8 to GLib 2.19.10

* GMarkup:
 - Considerable speedup

 - Add G_FILE_CREATE_REPLACE_DESTINATION flag to allow replacing
   the destination of a copying operation as if it did not exit before.

   of fuse pathnames for %u and %U arguments
