GLib 2.25.2 is now available for download at:

sha256 sums:


This is the third development release leading up to GLib 2.26.


 * 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 2.24. If you have problems, you'll need
  to reinstall GLib 2.24.

 * GLib 2.26 will be source and binary compatible with
  the GLib 2.24 series; however, the new API additions
  in GLib 2.25.0 are not yet finalized, so there may
  be incompatibilities between this release and the final
  2.26 release.

 * Bugs should be reported to
