* Bump version
* === Released 2.18.1 ===
* NEWS: Updates
2008-09-16 Tor Lillqvist <>
* glib/gtimer.c (g_time_val_to_iso8601): time_t is 64 bits in all
the newer Microsoft C libraries, not just 64-bit ones. So to avoid
crash if compiled with newer MSVSes, use a separate time_t
variable in all cases on Windows.
* glib/gbacktrace.h: Define G_BREAKPOINT() also for 64-bit MSVC,
using the __debugbreak() intrinsic.
2008-09-15 Behdad Esfahbod <>
* Fix description of module shared library suffix.
2008-09-15 Tor Lillqvist <>
* Update to match what the configure script
produces. Just for uniformity, only commented out parts affected.
2008-09-13 Tor Lillqvist <>
* glib/gutils.h
* glib/gwin32.h: Deprecate G_WIN32_DLLMAIN_FOR_DLL_NAME(),
g_win32_get_package_installation_directory() and
g_win32_get_package_installation_subdirectory() as their
documentation has warned for a while. Sorry that I forgot to do
this before 2.18.0.
* glib/gwin32.c (g_win32_get_package_installation_directory):
Print a warning if a non-NULL package parameter is passed to this
function, as that is deprecated usage, as the documentation says.

Bug 551228 – G_STRFUNC on recent Sun compiler should be expanded to
__func__ rather than '???'
* glib/gmacros.h: Don't use glibconfig.h defines in gmacros.h,
as the comment up top says. Instead look at __STDC_VERSION__.
Problem reported by Lin Ma.

Bug 523463 – Core dump in gmain.c:2482:IA__g_main_context_check()
* glib/gmain.c (g_main_context_check): Be robust against setting
event fields on the fly, as e.g. happens in linc. Tracked down
by Paul Smith, fix proposed by Owen Taylor.

Bug 550096 – GBookmarkFile parser is not forward compatible
* glib/gbookmarkfile.c:
(parse_bookmark_element), (parse_application_element),
(parse_mime_type_element), (parse_icon_element): Relax the
attributes checking of the GBookmarkFile parser for the
attributes that the desktop bookmark file specification
defines and controls. This allows adding new attributes to
the existing elements in newer versions without breaking the
parser in older ones.
2008-08-28 Ryan Lortie <>
Fixup for test case in previous commit.
* glib/tests/strfuncs.c: don't fail if we can't open the test data.
This happens if $(builddir) != $(srcdir) (like when doing 'make
distcheck'). Quick workaround for now until #549783 can be fixed.

* Change libselinux detection to not link libglib
against it.
2008-08-28 Michael Natterer <>
* glib/gstrfuncs.c (g_parse_long_long): make "endptr" const since
it's always a pointer into the const string passed. Remove some
casting to (gchar*) in this function.
(g_ascii_strtoll): cast "endptr" to (const gchar**) here when
passing it to above function.

nul-terminators in strings, and using the haystack_len instead
2008-08-28 Bastien Nocera <>
Bug 548612 – g_strstr_len() should use memmem when available
* detect whether memmem is available in the C library
* glib/gstrfuncs.c (g_strstr_len): use memmem for g_strstr_len() if
available in it's available, as it could be optimised by the C library
* tests/string-test.c (main): Add a few tests for g_strstr_len()
2008-08-27 Tor Lillqvist <>
* glib/giowin32.c: Stylistic changes. Plug an unlikely memory leak
that occurred in create_thread() if closing the thread handle
failed. Add more error messages to g_io_win32_free() that are
printed only when debugging. Plug handle leak, a socket channel's
event was never closed.
2008-08-27 Tor Lillqvist <>
* Should not define HAVE_DIRENT_H when
compiling with MSVC, as the only file which checks HAVE_DIRENT_H
is gdir.c, and that includes the dirent.h and wdirent.c from
build/win32/dirent explicitly anyway when being compiled with

Bug 523939 – Example program for GValue
* gobject/gvalue.c: Add code example that demonstrates GValue's
2008-08-21 Tor Lillqvist <>
* glib/giowin32.c: Minor comment improvements. Improve run-time
warning messages. Drop some #if 0 code. Don't bother compiling the
binary compatibility g_io_channel_win32_new_stream_socket()
function that has not been mentioned in any header since 2.0 on
* glib/glib.symbols: Mark it, too, private, and don't export it on
2008-08-21 Tor Lillqvist <>
* glib/gmain.c: Rework the g_poll() implementation on Windows to
match poll() semantics more closely. This makes the test program
in bug #468910 behave better and doesn't seem to break anything
If polling several GPollFDs, i.e. messages and/or waitable
handles, first check if one or several of them are in the
signalled state right away, with timeout zero. Return indication
for all that are in that case. To check if several handles are
signalled, we have to call the WaitForMultipleObjectsEx() function
repeatedly, each time removing the handle it indicated was
signalled last time, until WAIT_TIMEOUT is returned.
If not, then poll with timeout and indicate only the single one
that the Win32 wait function tells us as before.
Remove unnecessary ifdefs, as we always have G_MAIN_POLL_DEBUG
defined on Windows.
Initialise g_main_poll_debug in g_main_context_new() so we have it
before testing it in one case.
Don't put several copies of a handle in the array of handles to
wait for. The documentation says this is not allowed, although it
did seem to work fine in practise. But do as the documentation
says anyway.
2008-08-20 Tor Lillqvist <>
Bug 500246 - Bug fixes for giowin32
* glib/giowin32.c (read_thread) (write_thread): Change the nbytes
variables to signed.
(g_io_channel_win32_make_pollfd): Fix an obvious error in the file
descriptor case leftover after the patch from bug #333098 on
2006-03-02. Thanks to Marcus Brinkmann.
2008-08-20 Tor Lillqvist <>
Bug 324234 - Using g_io_add_watch_full() to wait for connect() to
return on a non-blocking socket returns prematurely
Bug 548278 - Async GETs connections are always terminated
unexpectedly on Windows
* glib/giowin32.c: Add one more state variable to the
GIOWin32Channel struct, ever_writable. Initialise it to FALSE, set
to TRUE when the WSAEventSelect() indicates FD_WRITE, and never
reset to FALSE.
Don't do the WSASetEvent() in g_io_win32_prepare() unless
ever_writable is TRUE. Don't automatically indicate G_IO_OUT in
g_io_win32_check() unless ever_writable is TRUE.
This fixes the behaviour of the test case program in bug #548278,
and the "Testcase for the spurious OUT event bug" in bug
#324234. It also doesn't seem to break anything. Not that there is
any exhaustive test suite...

* Output to glibconfig.h typedefs for gintptr as the
signed integer type that can hold a pointer, and guintptr as the
corresponding unsigned type. These types are portable equivalents
to intptr_t and uintptr_t which are not available in all
For all current platforms, they will presumably end up as the same
types as gssize and gsize, but in theory size_t can be smaller
than intptr_t. Also, the intended use case for gintptr and
guintptr is different from that of gssize and gsize. As the name
indicates, gintptr is for when one wants an integer type that can
hold a pointer, and gsize is for when one wants an integer type
that can hold the value of the sizeof operator.

Fix problems on 64-bit Windows. Avoid warnings, some of which
indicated actual problems, some which were just annoyances.
Where casts to an integer type are needed for pointers, use
gssize. Technically intptr_t would be the more proper type, but we
still want to be compilable with MSVS6 and 7 which don't have
intptr_t. MSVS8 and 9 do have intptr_t, but in <crtdefs.h>, not

* glib/gtimer.c (g_time_val_to_iso8601): time_t is 64 bits on

* Make sure we don't build both shared and static at
the same time on Windows. Put a #define for
GLIB_STATIC_COMPILATION into glibconfig.h in the static case, so
that the use of variables from libglib gets the GLIB_VAR macro in
gtypes.h automatically correct. This means that a shared and
static build of GLib can't be installed in the same prefix on
Windows, which sucks a bit. But with variables in the GLib API,
there isn't much we can do otherwise. The alternative would be to
force the developer who compiles against a statically built GLib
if needed.

* Don't enforce shared library build only on

Bug 523877 – gbookmarkfile: avoid using g_string_append_printf() and
other optimizations
* glib/gbookmarkfile.c: (bookmark_metadata_dump),
(bookmark_item_dump), (g_bookmark_file_dump), (expand_exec_line):
Replace all calls to g_string_append_printf with g_strconcat () or
g_string_append () where appropriate, to reduce the file creation time.
Also, use g_string_sized_new () with an appropriate buffer size instead
of g_string_new (NULL), to reduce time spent in memory reallocation.

Bug 518160 - replace two g_strdup_printf calls in GBookmarkFile
* glib/gbookmarkfile.c (is_element_full): Compare the fragments

Bug 523298 - win_iconv can't convert from UTF-8 to GB18030 (or vice versa)
* glib/win_iconv.c: Fixes for code page 54936 (GB18030)
(mbtowc_flags): New function. Check if a code page is one of those
for which the dwFlags parameter to MultiByteToWideChar() must be
zero. Return 0 or MB_ERR_INVALID_CHARS.
(mbcs_mblen): New function for multi-byte (more than two bytes for
some characters) code pages. Only handles 54936 for now.
(make_csconv): Use it for 54936.
(kernel_mbtowc): Use mbtowc_flags().

Bug 522292 - Gives warnings in glib/gutils.h with GCC in C99 mode
* glib/gutils.h: Use "__attribute__ ((__gnu_inline__))" for inlining
if either __GNUC_STDC_INLINE__ or __GNUC_GNU_INLINE__ are defined. In
gcc version prior to 4.3 no correct C99-inline was implemented which
has semantic differences to GNU inline.

* Don't bother defining Autoconf variables for
glib.def, gmodule.def, gobject.def and gthread.def when this can
be handled easily in */ which are the only files that
use them. Remove also TESTGMODULE_EXP which isn't used at all.
* glib/ Corrsponding change.
2008-03-14 Michael Natterer <>
* glib/*.h: make it possible to disable single-file includes by
defining G_DISABLE_SINGLE_INCLUDES when building against GLib.
Approved by Tim Janik.
* glib/glib.h: include <glib/gslice.h>.
* glib/gi18n.h
* glib/gi18n-lib.h
* glib/gprintf.h: include <glib.h> so the above works when these
files are included without including <glib.h> first.
