Overview of changes in GLib 2.67.1
==================================
* Deprecate `g_time_zone_new()` in favour of `g_time_zone_new_identifier()`,
which makes error checking easier (#553)
* Remove `volatile` from various public APIs, including `G_DEFINE_*`. You should
adjust your code to not use `volatile` for atomic variables, `GOnce`
variables, or mostly anything else (see
http://isvolatileusefulwiththreads.in/c/). (#600)
* Support passing file handles to `gdbus` command line tool (work by
Norbert Pocs and Tim Waugh) (#961)
* Add `g_assert_cmpstrv()` test convenience function (work by Niels De Graef) (#2015)

normalization flag in `GUri` (work by Carlos Garcia Campos) (#2257, !1716)
* Add new `--run-prefix` and `--skip-prefix` options to GTest, to allow running
or skipping test suites by prefix (work by Frederic Martinsons) (!1738)
* Fix thread-safety of `GBinding`; see the updated documentation for
`g_object_bind_property()` for full details — if your code uses `GBinding`
across threads, you should re-check it against the latest documentation, use
`g_binding_unbind()` rather than implicitly dropping the binding with your
last `g_object_unref()` call, and use `g_binding_dup_source()`/`g_binding_dup_target()`
instead of `g_binding_get_source()`/`g_binding_get_target()`
(work by Sebastian Dröge) (!1745)

Overview of changes in GLib 2.61.2
==================================
* Add various new array functions (#236, #269, #373)
- `g_array_copy()`

- `g_array_binary_search()`
* Add `g_assert_finalize_object()` helper function for writing tests (#488)
* Rework how D-Bus connections are closed/unreffed when `g_test_dbus_down()` is
called. Tests which leak a `GDBusConnection` may now time out and abort,
rather than silently leaking. (#787)
* Add a deprecation macro for GLib macros, and use it; third-party uses of
long-deprecated GLib macros may now start causing warnings. (#1060)
* Deprecate `GTime` and `GTimeVal`, and various functions which use them.
Use `GDateTime` and `guint64` UNIX timestamps instead. (#1438)
* Stop using `G_DISABLE_DEPRECATED` to allow disabling deprecation warnings;
third-party code should now be using
`GLIB_VERSION_{MIN_REQUIRED, MAX_ALLOWED}` to control symbol usage (!871)
* Improve support for running `ninja test` when GLib is built statically (#1648)
* Improve `GNetworkMonitor` detection of offline states (#1788)

higher than this for a while, as Debian 10 ships 0.49 (!924)
* Various test fixes for Windows (!930, !931)
* Initial support for Universal Windows Platform (UWP): certification, and use
of packaged libraries (!951)

Overview of changes in GLib 2.59.1
==================================
* Autotools support is gone. (!580)
* g_format_size() now uses a no-break space to separate digits and units;
translations will need to be updated accordingly. (#1625)
* New g_queue_clear_full() API. (#1464)
* Fix argument quoting on win32 when spawning subprocesses. (!419)
* Allow polling more than 64 handles on win32 using g_poll(). (#1071)
* Tag various tests as ‘flaky’. These are no longer run routinely on our
upstream CI machines, and downstream packagers may want to not run them (or
not treat those test failures as package build failures) on their test
machines either. They are in the `flaky` test suite. (!579)
* Add overlay support to g_resources_get_info(). (#1445)
* Support defaults and locks in the keyfile GSettings backend. This will be
used for flatpaks. (!450)
* Accept unquoted strings in the keyfile GSettings backend to simplify things
for sysadmins. (!603)
* Update our contribution guidelines (`CONTRIBUTING.md`). (!590)
* Add writev() and writev_all() APIs to GOutputStream and GPollableOutputStream,
and provide implementations of them for many subclasses. (#1431)
* Bugs fixed:
- #424 Add 'proxy' debugging support

Overview of changes in GLib 2.59.0
==================================
* This will be the last development release with autotools support. As our
Meson support has been around since 2.56.x, and was used to release tarballs
in 2.58.x, the next development release (2.59.1) will drop autotools as used
to build GLib. The macros installed for other packages to use will remain.
* Add `G_TEST_OPTION_ISOLATE_DIRS` to redirect `XDG_*_HOME` to a temporary
directory for each unit test. (#538)
* Support `Property.EmitsChangedSignal` annotations in `gdbus-codegen`. (#542)
* Add `g_assert_cmpvariant()` API for unit tests. (#1191)
* Hide bind mounts from GIO mount listings. (#1271)
* Automatically realign data passed to `g_variant_new_from_bytes()` or
`g_variant_new_from_data()` if it is not correctly aligned. This prevents
misaligned accesses on architectures which don’t support them. Callers should
still aim to correctly align data to get higher performance. (#1342)
* Support `ld -b binary` (on platforms which support it; i.e. Linux) to provide
large pre-compiled `GResource` resources with a fast compilation time. (#1489)
* Unconditionally install GLib m4 macros, so that projects which depend on GLib
and which still build using autotools can continue to build even once GLib has
ported entirely to Meson. (#1520)
* Various fixes to the Meson build.
* Drop Python 2 support and require Python 3.4+. See discussion on
https://mail.gnome.org/archives/desktop-devel-list/2018-July/msg00004.html.
(!196)
* `GHashTable` performance and memory improvements for common cases. See
https://hpjansson.org/blag/2018/07/24/a-hash-table-re-hash/. (!208)
* Add flags that allow a `GApplication` to signal and replace a currently
running other instance of the same `GApplication`. This will be used for app
upgrades with flatpak. (!250)
* Autostart xdg-desktop-portal when using the network monitor and proxy monitor
portal backends. (!317)
* Add a g_task_set_name() API to allow `GTask`s to be described; useful for
debugging. (!384)
* Enable FreeBSD CI on every commit for upstream GLib. (!387)
* Various GVariant, GMarkup and GDBus fuzzing fixes, including buffer overflow
fixes. (!411)
* Various fixes to eliminate thread races, found by thread sanitizer (tsan).
* Deprecate TLS/DTLS rehandshaking, as it has been removed from the protocol in
TLS 1.3. (!478)
* Support reading arguments from a file with `glib-mkenums`, which is useful
for long argument lists due to having deeply nested build directories, on
systems with a low limit on the command line length. (!489)
* Make `g_environ_*()` case-insensitive on Windows, as the environment itself
is case-insensitive on Windows. (!500)
* Add Application Layer Protocol Negotiation (ALPN) support to `GTlsConnection`
and `GDtlsConnection`, so that higher layer protocols can be negotiated when

Overview of changes in GLib 2.58.0
==================================
* Tarball built with `ninja dist`, so if you want to build this release with
autotools (which is supported), you will need to re-run autogen.sh. This
release, and all micro releases in the 2.58.x series, support being built
with Meson or autotools. See:
https://mail.gnome.org/archives/gtk-devel-list/2018-June/msg00012.html
* Fix cancellation of g_subprocess_communicate_async() calls. See !266.
* Drop support for the __int64 type, which further breaks compilation on old
MSVC versions (before VS2013). See #1313.
* Expose GSettings schema directory in gio-2.0.pc as `schemasdir`. See !274.
* Support v3 of the xdg-desktop-portal network monitor API. See !265, !279.
* Fix G_MODULE_SUFFIX on macOS when GLib is built with Meson — it should be `so`
rather than `dylib`. Projects that use Meson and the `g_module_build_path()`
API such as glib-networking should pass `name_suffix:` to `shared_module()` to
ensure that plugins continue to be called libfoo.so on macOS. See !280.
Bugs fixed:
!280 meson: Always set G_MODULE_SUFFIX to `so` on macOS
!266 subprocess: Fix communicate_cancelled signature
!279 Revert "Add a gnet utility" (see !265)
!265 Network monitor again
!274 gio: Provide schemas directory information in pkg-config file
!239 gvariant: Fix more bounds checking in GVariant text format parser
!195 garray: add overflow checks before expanding array
#1497 g_strdup_printf warns on invalid format specifier with G_GUINT64_FORMAT on Win32
!270 autotools: remove support for the __int64 type. See #1313
!267 ci: Add an autotools job

Overview of changes in GLib 2.57.3
==================================
* G_GNUC_MALLOC’s definition has been tightened up to match an updated
definition from GCC. Many uses of G_GNUC_MALLOC which were previously
appropriate may cause miscompilation with newer GCC versions. Check your uses
of it against the updated documentation. See #1465.
* Many minor documentation fixes.
* Fix for gint64 and int64_t compatibility on macOS and BSD. See #972.
* Fix free space metadata on some file systems (notably FAT). See #328.
* Support installed-tests with our Meson build system. See #1444.
* Forbid @filename@/@basename@ in glib-mkenums templates, which is a change to
its long-standing behaviour (which was long-standing nonsensical). See !241.
* Various stat() fixes on Windows. See #1452, #1476.
* MinGW-w64 ABI warning: In case you build 64 bit glib without LFS support by
passing --disable-largefile (not the default) and use GStatBuf, you need to
rebuild your application as the size of GStatBuf has changed for this case.
See #1476.
* Improve TAP compatibility of g_test_incomplete(). See #1474.
* Change fallback preferences when loading icons. See !72.
Bugs fixed:
!263 build: Clean files left behind after gio/tests/gresource.c test
!262 gmem: Only evaluate pointer argument to g_clear_pointer() once
#1465 Many uses of G_GNUC_MALLOC are incorrect
#1448 g_error does not abort() as documented

!230 gbookmarkfile: Fix some more minor leaks when metadata elements are repeated
#1466 Not Able to Build glib 2.57.2 in Mingw-w64 x64 bits
#1433 test_posix_parse: assertion failed (g_time_zone_get_abbreviation (tz, 0) == "UTC"): ("LMT" == "UTC")
#1446 Follow-up from "Document difference between g_assert() and g_assert_*() wrt G_DISABLE_ASSERT"
!206 grefstring: Avoid an unnecessary NUL assignment
#1458 g_volume_get_mount returns NULL value after g_volume_mount_finish is called with no error
!72 gio: icons should fallback to non-preferred style appropriately.
