Glib 1.051 (unstable)

Glib provides Perl access to the GLib and GObject libraries. GLib is a portability and utility library; GObject provides a generic type system with inheritance and a powerful signal system. Together these libraries are used as the foundation for many of the libraries that make up the Gnome environment, and are used in many unrelated projects.

This is an unstable development release of Glib, containing new features and other cool stuff that have been added since the 1.04x stable series. The API is not frozen and things are subject to change at any time. Report any bugs to gtk-perl-list AT gnome DOT org as soon as possible. Please use the stable 1.04x series for important work.

The source code is available from the gtk2-perl project page on sourceforge: group_id=64773&package_id=91217&release_id=249165

...and via anonymous cvs, tagged "rel-1-05-1" in the directory /gtk2-perl-xs/Glib .

This release works with all stable releases of glib-2.x.

In order to build Glib 1.051 from source, you must have glib-2.x and its development headers and utilities installed, as well as the pkg-config utility. In addition, the following Perl modules are needed at build time (but not at runtime):

  ExtUtils::Depends >= 0.200
  ExtUtils::PkgConfig >= 1.000

Overview of Changes in Glib 1.051

* Code fixes and cleanup for C89 compatibility.  [Albert Chin, muppet]
* Fine-tune error message format helper.  [muppet]
* Implement new fallback and explicit handlers for Glib::Object properties; the fallback handlers use the wrapper hash keys (as in the defaults provided by Glib::Object::Subclass), and explicit handlers may now be specified when
  creating properties.  [muppet]
* Handle undef gracefully in gperl_value_from_sv().  [muppet]
