Overview of changes in GLib 2.49.4
* Change the just-introduced structured logging API. The arguments
of g_log_structured() had to be reordered to enable an implementation
within the limits of what the standards guarantee about var args.
Bugs fixed:
744456 Structured logging API
768936 gio doc build fails because of missing gio.xml in the tarballs
768963 improper va_list use in g_log_structured()

Overview of changes in GLib 2.49.3
* GLib has a structured logging API, g_log_structured, with support
for writing to the systemd journal. It also supports colored output
in terminals
* Some new GBytes API has been added:
- g_key_file_load_from_bytes
- g_compute_hmac_for_bytes
* Stack-allocated GVariantBuilder and GVariantDict objects can now be
* gio:
- Add a way to register handlers for custom uri schemes
have these heuristics in a single place
- Include a gio tool that makes the functionality of the
various gvfs commandline tools available in a single place
- Add portal support to g_app_info_launch_default_for_uri
- Add portal support to GNetworkMonitor
- Add portal support to GProxyResolver
- Add portal support to g_application_send_notification

* GDesktopAppInfo now allows bus activation with dashes. This is
not technically allowed per the Desktop Entry specification, but
it happens in the wild. Rather than forcing people to go through
another traumatic desktop file rename, accept it and translate - to _.
* The support for giving names to threads has been improved. Thread names
are now supported on Solaris as well, and the Linux support no longer
uses prctl() but the pthread api.
* GIO resources can now be overridden at runtime, using the G_RESOURCE_OVERLAYS
environment variable.
* gdbus-codegen can now generate autocleanup definitions for the types
it generates. Use the --c-generate-autocleanup option to control this

Overview of changes in GLib 2.47.3
The inline cleanup in the last release accidentally removed three
symbols from It is unlikely that this will have caused
any problems because these symbols were only backup symbols for
definitions exported as inlines in the header files, but ABI is ABI.
This release corrects only this problem.
Overview of changes in GLib 2.47.2
* We have formalised the assumption that all compilers that are
interested in support 'static inline' and simplified the macros around
this considerably. Please watch for and report unintentional fallout.
* New API: hardware-assisted helpers for overflow-checked integer math.
* other fixes

to reject schema xml that has duplicate <summary> or <description>
elements. Such elements typically occur when translations are merged
into the schema, with xml:lang attributes. This is not the correct
way to translate schemas. Instead keep the translations in the .mo
file and set the gettext-domain attribute on the <schemalist> element.
* The file monitoring infrastructure has been rewritten, and all backends
have seen major improvements.
The inotify backend is reporting events with less delay (no event will
be delayed more than 10ms) and wakeups due to file monitoring have been
significantly reduced. A CHANGES_DONE event will also be sent when new
files appear.
The poll implementation is now using the thread default main context.
The fam implmentation is now running in the worker thread.
The fen implementation has been removed, since it was unmaintained.
* The GSettings schema compiler, glib-compile-schemas, is more strict
about rejecting schemas with xml:lang style merged translations.
Schema translations should be done by specifying the gettext domain
in the xml, and keeping the translations in gettext. To avoid breaking
already-installed schemas, this change is only taking effect when
you use the --strict option.
* The hardcoded 10-thread limit of GTask's thread pool has been removed,
since it was prone to causing deadlocks. The thread pool is now allowed
to grow dynamically and will shrink back over time.
* GSimpleAsyncResult has been deprecated in favor of GTask.
* The algorithm used by GAppInfo to find default handlers for mime types
has been tweaked to prefer apps that handle the specific subtype over
default handlers for a generic supertype.
* Bug fixes:

Overview of changes in GLib 2.43.92
GLib is now considered frozen. We do not expect any major changes
before the release of 2.44.0.
* GUnixMountMonitor now properly supports multiple main contexts
* many documentation improvements and cleanups. We are now
approaching a point where the documentation is 100% complete and the
xml will build without warnings. This will probably be enabled by
default in the next cycle.
* new support for HTTP proxies in GIO
* new GTask:completed property
* use "private" futexes in order to further improve the performance of
the contended case of GMutex and g_bit_lock()

Overview of changes from GLib 2.39.90 to GLib 2.39.91
This release introduces a hard dependency on present and functioning
clock_gettime() and CLOCK_MONOTONIC. It also introduces a dependency on
pthread_condattr_setclock() unless your system happens to have
pthread_cond_timedwait_relative_np() (as do Mac OS and Android). This
release is known to be broken with at least GNU/Hurd, pending addition
of working pthread_condattr_setclock(CLOCK_MONOTONIC) there.
New API: g_str_to_ascii()

Overview of changes from GLib 2.39.0 to GLib 2.39.1
* GSettings fixes/improvements
- GSettingsSchema API is now more powerful and consistent
- new GSettingsSchemaKey API allows accessing metadata for keys:
type, default value, range and the long-awaited support for summary
and description
- GSettingsSchemaSource gains support for listing schemas within a
source. Deprecate the global API that did this for the default
- 'gsettings list-schemas' now works properly with --schemadir
- deprecate a bunch of now-redundant functionality on GSettings
- add API to GSettings for getting the default value of a key (as set
by the sysadmin)
- add API to GSettings for determining if the user has assigned a
particular value to a key (ie: we are not just reading the default)
- ignore qualified tags and attributes appearing in schema files
* Applications/Actions
- make GSimpleAction a bit more strict with respect to state changes
that would violate the interface (ie: by changing the state type
after construction)
- throw an error when attempting to 'Describe' a non-existent action
via D-Bus instead of returning a bogus description
- throw an error when attempting to invoke unsupported methods on an
Application (eg: 'Open' on an app that doesn't HANDLES_OPEN)
instead of emitting a g_critical() in context of the app (which is
not itself at fault for the errant call)
* Appinfo
- substantially rework GDesktopAppInfo to reduce the amount of disk
accesses that are performed in common situations
- add a new class: GAppInfoMonitor for discovering when applications
are installed/removed
- add a new g_desktop_app_info_search() API for searching for
installed applications by name, keywords, etc.
* GMarkup: add new G_MARKUP_IGNORE_QUALIFIED flag for skipping over
"qualified" tags and attributes (those with a colon in the name, such
as 'my:tag')
* GDBus
- ignore qualified tags, as above
- GTestDBus: unset all D-Bus addresses (such as STARTER) to ensure
that test programs don't pick them up
- add new session_bus_run() convenience in the tests and use it
* GRand: use real random data as a seed on win32 and use the
timestamp/pid/uid fallback only on UNIX machines where we can't open
'/dev/urandom'. This may cause issues with older mingw32 releases
due to a missing prototype for the rand_s() API.
* Many win32 (and particularly MSVC) portability fixes. Many
additional tests are now runnable when building with MSVC.
* Due to early testing of the (soon to land) GCleanup framework, a very
large number of memory errors have been found and fixed (mostly in
the testcases, but some in glib itself).
* GIO:
- some more seeking cleanups: particularly on GLocalFileInputStream
- don't leave a .trashinfo file around if trashing a file fails
- Add a request_certificate virtual method to GTlsInteraction

Overview of changes from GLib 2.38.0 to GLib 2.39.0
* prep for the 2.40 series (version macros, docs index, etc.)
* GNotification
- new API for sending persistent notifications via the desktop shell
- notifications persist when the application has quit and clicking on
them can restart the application with an action (via
* GSubprocess
- new API for launching subprocesses
- nice GIO integration like async functions, cancellability, etc.
- a convenient communicate() API inspired by the same API in Python
- related: the gspawn API now has a CLOEXEC flag for the created
pipes for stdin/stdout/stderr
* New gapplication(1) commandline tool
- intended to be used with DBusActivatable apps
- can be used for launching apps, opening files, invoking application
actions and listing apps and actions
- bash tab completion is supported
* GDesktopAppInfo changes:
- g_file_get_path() can implicitly cause a FUSE mount so don't call
it until we know we need it (for an app that doesn't support URIs)
- don't crash when trying to load from a keyfile with
- remove some dead code, refactor the search path handling a bit and
do a large-scale whitespace cleanup (prep work for the pending
desktop file index)
* File monitors
- fix broken handling of mount point monitoring
- remove some strange use of GObject::constructor() from the base
class and inotify backend
- fix GFileMonitor to work in the non-default main context even when
the main context is not running (or is blocked)
- add internal private API for easily creating a file monitor in the
GLib worker thread
* GSettings
- g_settings_list_children: only list viable schemas. This fixes a
longstanding issue where 'gsettings list-recursively' will crash
when there are invalid schemas installed
- don't accept invalid paths on g_settings_new_with_path, etc.
- GFile now has a thumbnail::is-valid attribute to check if the
thumbnail in thumbnail::path needs to be regenerated
- GDBusProxy now has a flag to control autostarting of services at
construction time
- for GSeekable, properly introduce the concept of "resizable" vs.
"fixed-sized" streams in the docs, explaining the expected
semantics of the interface in each case
- fix some cases in GMemoryOutputStream that were violating the above
expectations (which may cause a slight API incompatibility)
- clean up GCredentials code and add support for Hurd and Solaris
- improve splicing by using different codepaths for the case where we
have real _read_async() and _write_async() implementations on the
stream vs. the case where they are internally emulated (via
dispatching the sync variant of the call in a thread)
* GKeyFile
- fix a leak in g_key_file_get_(u)int64 when we fail to parse the
value as an integer
- add long-requested API g_key_file_save_to_file()
* Portability improvements
- avoid using O_DIRECTORY on platforms that don't have it
- be careful about systems that define SOCK_CLOEXEC but don't
actually support it (like Hurd)
- only use SA_RESTART if it exists
* Other small API changes/additions
- a pair of functions to support matching strings for the type of
search functionality that you'd expect to have with things like
GtkSearchBar. This will also be used by the desktop file index.
- g_str_is_ascii() with obvious purpose
- g_test_expect_message() no longer appears to allow you to catch
G_LOG_ERROR messages
* GMainContext/GSource
- fix handling of overflowing the 'next source id' counter
- g_source_remove() will now throw a critical in the case that you
try to remove a non-existent source. We expect that there is some
code in the wild that will fall afoul of this new critical but
considering that we now reuse source IDs, this code is already
broken and should probably be fixed.
- simplify handling of the 'current dispatching source' to not
require use of a linked list
* GObject
- the long-broken (and leaky) pattern of destroying a just-allocated
object from inside of a custom GObject::constructor is now
officially completely illegal and will abort the program
* Unicode: update to 6.3.0
* Bug fixes
- g_file_copy() now falls back to pathname queryinfo. This should
clear up the bugs with copying from some GVfs backends (afp,
gphoto, archive, at least).
- fix an out-of-bounds read in the xdgmime code
- fix a typo in the /org/freedesktop/DBus path on the object manager
- skip emitting path_namespace='/' in match rules in order to
workaround a bug in the D-Bus daemon and fix our own implementation
(which shared exactly the same bug)
- fix crashes on precondition violations for GParamSpec constructors
- many other small fixups (see bug list)
* Many documentation improvements

What's new in Glib 2.38
* Application support
- GIO now provides an implementation of Desktop Actions from the
desktop entry specification
- GApplication now implements the org.freedesktop.Application
interface as per the desktop entry specification, allowing for
standards-based D-Bus launching of GLib-based applications
- GDesktopAppInfo now supports DBusActivatable as per the desktop
entry specification, allowing GLib-based applications to use D-Bus
to launch other applications
- GApplication now has a "busy" flag that can be set on an application
to allow the shell to show that it is busy
* GObject
- the private offset for a given class type is now always constant.
This was done by reorganising the memory layout of instances so that
the private data comes before the "official" pointer for the object
(ie: at a negative offset). Valgrind macros were added to mitigate
any problems that this may have caused.
- a new G_DEFINE_TYPE_WITH_PRIVATE has been added along with a
generated function *_get_instance_private() that can now serve as an
equally-performing alternative to ->priv pointers in instances
(allowing memory savings)
provide a convenient method of converting between named variables in
private structures and their (now constant) offsets
- installing properties on a GObjectClass must now be done from
class_init. It is no longer valid to install them after class_init
has returned.
- it is now possible to manually break a GObject property binding
without destroying one of the objects involved
* Icons
- the requirements for implementing the GIcon interface have changed
in order to make it possible to consume all implementations of GIcon
with a finite number of cases
- a new GBytesIcon type was added for an icon represented by an
in-memory binary blob in a known image format (ideally png).
- new APIs g_icon_serialize() and g_icon_deserialize() replace the old
to/from_string APIs and will always work, irrespective of which
types have been initialised in the calling process, allowing for a
serialised GdkPixbuf to be deserialised in a process that doesn't
have GdkPixbuf
- support for icons has been added to GMenuModel using the new APIs
* Actions and menus
- GPropertyAction provides a convenient way of creating a stateful
property corresponding to a property on a GObject, such as the
"visible-child-name" property of a GtkStack
- new API g_menu_remove_all()
- we now have established rules about what is a "valid" action name
and an API to check them
- a new API for converting detailed action names to and from the
split-out name and parameter value (as GVariant)
- for backwards compatibility, invalid action names can still be used
with most functions, but this is not recommended
* Other GIO
- GDBus now supports services that wish to handle some of all
properties on an interface asynchronously, without requiring the
service to reimplement the entire org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties
- GFile now has a new _measure_disk_usage() (and async) API for
recursively determining the amount of disk space used by a
particular directory (akin to 'du').
- asynchronous version of g_file_trash() and g_file_make_directory()
have been added
* Other new API
- GRegex has a new function to query the maximum lookbehind length to
allow for regexp matching on streams
- GVariant has two new APIs for constructing strings that allow
avoiding copies in some cases: g_variant_new_take_string() and
* Testing
- we can now generate TAP output
- new support functions for simplifying the process of dealing with
data files for srcdir != builddir and installed test cases
- g_test_trap_subprocess() provides a portable alternative to
* Other
- GLib now builds on Android against the bionic C library

Overview of changes from GLib 2.35.7 to 2.35.8
This release contains one major change that may cause problems: type
modules are now never unloaded. This is implemented by (effectively)
leaking the last reference on dynamic types. Some testcases that check
for unloading of types have been observed to be broken by this change,
but we know of no actual cases of "real code" breaking. Please report
any problems.
Other changes:
* A couple of build fixes for Solaris
* Fix signal emission for GDBusObjectManagerClient
* annotations fixes
* new API: g_dbus_address_escape_value()

Overview of changes from GLib 2.35.2 to 2.35.3
* This release contains an incompatible change to the g_get_home_dir()
function. Previously, this function would effectively ignore the HOME
environment variable and always return the value from /etc/password.
As of this version, the HOME variable is used if it is set and the
value from /etc/passwd is only used as a fallback.
* We now install a public "gnetworking.h" header that can be used to
include the relevant OS-dependent networking headers. This does not
really abstract away unix-vs-windows however; error codes, in
particular, are incompatible.

Overview of changes from GLib 2.35.1 to 2.35.2
Note that the incompatible change to the ->constructed() vfunc that was
made in the last unstable release (2.35.1) has been reverted due to
causing regressions in applications.
A new incompatible change has been introduced in this version: it is no
longer permitted to add interfaces to a class after the first
instantiation (or more strictly: after g_type_class_ref()). Bug #687659
is tracking this.
Two private symbols (g_menu_{attribute,link}_hash_iter_get_type) which
were accidentally exported have also been properly hidden. This may
cause some tools to issue warnings about ABI mismatch.
The remaining changes should be relatively harmless:
* GIO now has kqueue support for GFileMonitor (BSDs, Mac OS)
* New g_variant_new_from_bytes() API
* UNIX signal sources now allow watching SIGUSR1 and SIGUSR2
* Many pedantic cleanups to adhere to a higher level of -W use
* GTask changes to avoid a deadlock
* many cleanups/fixes for Windows
* Boxing for GPollFD, GIOChannel, GBytes, GByteArray
* Fix URL-encoding of trashed files
* Many other docs and annotations fixes

Overview of changes from GLib 2.34.0 to 2.35.1
These two changes in particular may be slightly incompatible. Please
give feedback if they cause trouble:
* Signal handlers connected with g_signal_connect_object() are now
automatically disconnected on target object destruction
* The ->constructed vfunc is now called after all properties are set
The remaining changes should not cause problems.
* g_type_init() is no longer necessary and has been deprecated
* GTask (the new GAsyncResult implementation) has landed
* GLib version macros updated
* Update to Unicode 6.2
* Thread safety fixes for GFileMonitor in non-default main contexts
* GTimeZone support for old-format zoneinfo database (as on Mac OS)
* g_settings_bind() now works with non-canonical property names
* Fix crashes related to NULL connection passed to
GBusNameVanishedCallback and document this situation
