GLib 2.9.4 is now available for download at:
glib-2.9.4.tar.bz2 md5sum: 467d473c2fd43e124bcab02b6548c135
glib-2.9.4.tar.gz md5sum: 2852efbdd737949a6941e6082d183393
This is a development release leading up to GLib 2.10.
* This is unstable development release. While it has had
a bit of testing, there are certainly plenty of bugs
remaining to be found. This release should not be used
* Installing this version will overwrite your existing
copy of GLib 2.8. If you have problems, you'll need
to reinstall GLib 2.8.5.
* GLib 2.10 will be source and binary compatible with
the GLib 2.8.x series (for some caveats, see the
README). At this point, the API additions in the
2.9.x series are finished.
* Bugs should be reported to http://bugzilla.gnome.org.
GLib is the low-level core library that forms the basis for projects
such as GTK+ and GNOME. It provides data structure handling for C,
portability wrappers, and interfaces for such runtime functionality as
an event loop, threads, dynamic loading, and an object system.

* Type system:
Fix a problem with g_object_compat_control() which
can lead to segfaults in GTK+ applications on 64bit
* Thread suppport:
Unused threads now fall back to the global pool after
500 milliseconds, where they wait for another
max-idle-time milliseconds. [Sebastian Wilhelmi]
* Fix a memory allocation problem in GKeyFile. [Morten
