GLib 2.27.90

GLib 2.27.90 is now available for download at:


Another development release in the 2.27 development cycle.

Barring unforeseen emergencies, the API in this release should
be identical to the 2.28 API.

Overview of Changes from GLib 2.27.5 to 2.27.90

* Test reports created by gtester-report can now
  include revision information

* The g_desktop_app_info_launch_* family of functions
  now emit a DBus signal when an application is launched.
  Additionally, there is a new variant
  g_desktop_app_info_launch_uris_as_manager(), which
  gives more control over the launched process.

* The memory and null GSettings backends are now available
  as public API

* g_get_locale_variants() is a new function that returns a
  list of variants of a locale identifier
