GLib 2.25.10 is released

hi Everyone,

GLib 2.25.10 is now available for download at:

66e6a090c88a94f715889429498d940ff5bb890b3479b78f4c4c05f8a50b2a38  glib-2.25.10.tar.bz2
630485c1f2cf54f2665db869c7204ca6e52a4e59c2f211f0ce8aeb5c8ac0a888  glib-2.25.10.tar.gz

This is a development release leading 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.x are not yet finalized, so there may
  be incompatibilities between this release and the final
  2.26 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:

Overview of Changes from GLib 2.25.9 to GLib 2.25.10

| WARNING: There have been API changes in GDBus. Users of these  |
| APIs will need to be adapted.  In particular, a new release of |
| dconf is required to go along with this one.  There has also   |
| been a change in the GSettings backend API used for keyfiles.  |

* GDBus:
 - add direction parameter to filter functions (API change)
 - allow calling other interfaces with a GDBusProxy
 - padding added to class struct fields (ABI change)
 - fixes for closures-based functions

* GVariant:
 - new is_floating() call
 - add g_value_take_variant() call (required for marshallers)

* GSettings:
 - support for binding GParamSpecEnum properties
 - ifelse-style condition support for GLIB_GSETTINGS m4 macro
 - remove gsettings-schema-convert tool (now in GConf)
 - allow introspection of all installed schemas
 - allow introspection of the keys in a schema
 - rewrite keyfile backend (API change)

 - don't implicitly close GSocket until it is destroyed
 - windows fixups

* Other:
 - allow GChecksum to take (NULL, 0) for data/length
 - GRelation and GCompletion are now deprecated
 - add working directory to GApplication platform data
 - lots of documentation cleanups
 - PCRE updated to 8.02

* Build:
 - the IA__g_* style symbol aliasing has been disabled and replaced with
   the -Bsymbolic-functions linker flag on platforms that support it.
   Please be on the watch for portability issues and report them to us.
 - many test cases have been moved to the GTester framework
 - lcov support has been added for tests
 - many windows fixes
