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.
