Glib 1.212 (unstable) available

Overview of changes in Glib 1.212

* Allow calling Glib::Flags->as_arrayref directly, as an alternative to the @{}
* Add Glib::ParamSpec->value_validate and Glib::ParamSpec->value_cmp.
* Add documentation for Glib->filename_to_uri and filename_from_uri.
* Always use Data::Dumper instead of Storable on MSWin32 for serialization work
  during documentation generation.
* Make sure that messages with % chars in them make it through Glib->log and
  friends safely.

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

...and via anonymous SVN:


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 >= 0.300
   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.
