GLib 2.10.0 is now available for download

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.

GLib 2.10 is a stable release adding an incremental improvement in functionality over GLib 2.8 while maintaining binary and source compatibility. Major new features include:

* The Unicode support has been updated to Unicode 4.1.

* A new 'slice allocator' replaces GMemChunk.

* A new type, GInitiallyUnowned, provides a common implementation of 'floating references'.

* GAsyncQueue and GThreadPool can have sort functions now.
