Glib 1.260 (stable) available

Overview of changes in Glib 1.260 (stable)

* Tell CPAN to ignore POD fragments in Makefile.PL
* Document that SOURCE_CONTINUE and _REMOVE can be exported

The 1.26x series of Glib is now the stable branch of Glib.  The 1.26x
series of Glib contains fundamental changes made to Glib to prepare
for the release of Perl version 5.16.  These changes were first
discussed by Torsten in this e-mail:

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.
