Glib 1.072 (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 1.06x
stable series.  The API is frozen in accordance with the Gnome 2.10
schedule.  Report any bugs to gtk-perl-list AT gnome DOT org as soon as
possible.  Please use the stable 1.06x 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=295767

...and via anonymous cvs, tagged "rel-1-07-2" in the directory
/gtk2-perl-xs/Glib .

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

In order to build Glib 1.072 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
