* NEWS: Updates
2005-08-12 Tim-Philipp Müller <tim at centricular dot net>
* gobject/genums.c: (g_flags_get_first_value): Special-case flag
value of 0. Instead of returning the first random GFlagsValue
we come across, return the GFlagsValue for 0 if it exists or
NULL if it does not exist. Never return the GFlagsValue for 0
if the requested flags value is nonzero.

* tests/convert-test.c: Enable the endianness test.
* glib/gconvert.c: Make the caching of iconv descriptors
* Add an --enable-iconv-cache option, and
default to disabling iconv caching on new enough glibc.
Somebody with access to Solaris systems will need to test
if opening/closing of iconv descriptors is enough of
a performance problem to warrant the caching on that
platform. Note that the caching is causing correctness
problems in some corner cases, thus turning it off
is desirable unless it has severe performance implications.

endianness handling.

* tests/refcount/objects2.c:
* tests/refcount/properties.c:
* tests/refcount/properties2.c:
* tests/refcount/signals.c:
fixed up test and threading fundamentals. variables accessed from all
threads need to be volatile. context switches are enforced by using
g_thread_yield(), not g_usleep(1) which may result in busy waits on
some platforms. for testcode, always consider all warnings and
critical messages fatal. issue the currently running program on
stdout. improved progress indicators.

* tests/refcount/objects.c:
don't overdo the number of testing threads to keep the testing machine
usable, 2 threads can produce as much contention as 20 if executing the
same code.
* tests/refcount/signals.c: only start 1 thread per object. GObject
doesn't provide mutually exclusive object access, but only mutually
exclusive reference count modification.

moved G_DATALIST_*_POINTER() macros here, because proper use requires
the global g_dataset_global mutex to be acquired.
g_datalist_set_flags(): properly acquire and release dataset mutex.

implementation. See discussion in bug #147392.
* Don't use autoconf variables for the resource
object files on Win32 any longer. Instead handle that in the files. Check for windres.
* Minor tuning to match the
configure-produced glibconfig.h closely.
* glib/ Don't use the scripts in build/win32 to
compile glib.rc into a resource object file. (This means we lose
the build number increment magic, but I doubt it was that useful
anyway.) Instead use windres directly. To pass the normal .o file
produced by windres through libtool, which wants .lo files, pass
it directly to the linker using a -Wl option.
* glib/ Thus replace BUILDNUMBER with 0.

the Windows directory is a per-user folder.)
(g_get_any_init): Use get_windows_directory_root() as last resort

* glib/gconvert.c (open_converter, g_convert_with_iconv): Don't
call g_set_error() unless the GError pointer is non-NULL. This
avoids infinite recursion problems in certain rare situations on
Windows, when g_locale_from_utf8() is called from
_glib_get_locale_dir() after the change below. It's the
_glib_gettext() calls to translate error messages that are
parameters to g_set_error() that cause the recursion, not
g_set_error() itself.
* glib/gwin32.c (g_win32_locale_filename_from_utf8): New
function. Converts a filename to the system codepage, and if a
straight conversion isn't possible (because the filename contains
characters not in the system codepage), try looking up the
filename (which should refer to an existing file for this to
succeed) with short (8.3) pathname components.
* glib/gutils.c (_glib_get_locale_dir): No need to cache the
result, this function is normally called only once. Return the
path to the locale directory in system codepage, not UTF-8. The
path is passed to bindtextdomain(), which doesn't use UTF-8 file
names. Use g_win32_locale_filename_from_utf8(). (#301772)

* glib/gutils.h (g_win32_get_system_data_dirs): New static
function defined in this header. Calls

* glib/gutils.c (g_win32_get_system_data_dirs_for_module): New
function. If the address parameter is non-NULL, the corresponding
module's installation location is used for one of the returned
path names, in addition to the COMMON_APPDATA, COMMON_DOCUMENTS,
glib top-level and application top-level folders.
(g_get_system_data_dirs): Now just for backward compatibility on
Win32. Just call g_win32_get_system_data_dirs_for_module(NULL).
* glib/glib.symbols: Add g_win32_get_system_data_dirs_for_module.
