Glib 1.252 (unstable) available

Overview of changes in Glib 1.252 (unstable)

* Make the thread-safety improvements work for non-threaded perls too

There were fundamental changes made to Glib to prepare for the release
of Perl version 5.16, hence the unstable release tag.
These changes were first discussed by Torsten in this e-mail:

Note that due to a problem with indexing on CPAN, the Glib module was
"missing in action" on CPAN for about a week or so.  This was
documented in RT ticket #75948.  The indexing of the Glib module has
been fixed and verified via and via the
CPAN module itself.  The latest stable release of Glib is 1.242.

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.
