Glib 1.164 available

Overview of changes in Glib 1.164

* Allow Perl-derived GObjects to override GInterfaces that are implemented by
  parent classes.
* Load GInterface types immediately, instead of lazily.  This makes sure
  GInterfaces are set up by the time they are needed.

The source code is available from the gtk2-perl project page on  

...and via anonymous cvs, tagged "rel-1-16-4" in the directory  

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

In order to build Glib 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

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.
