There is new GString structure member "gsize allocated_len" introduced in 2.0.
Line above is about version compatibility.
Also as far as I remember glib 1.2 allocates initially 1K memory area on default
and doubles this area each time to fit string.  I am using LiveCD and
embeded distros on low memory machines with specially stripped mc,
so I dont glad to see this memory allocation strategy.

GString was introduced by Roland on Sep 19 and "simplified" on Sep 25.
