This is the first 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.

  be incompatibilities between this release and the final
  2.26 release.

About GLib

GLib is the low-level core library that forms the basis for projects

  transition. We provide utilities to assist with schema conversion
  and data migration, as well as a porting guide.
