This is a developement release leading to GLib 2.26.


* 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
in production.

* Installing this version will overwrite your existing
copy of GLib 2.24. If you have problems, you'll need
to reinstall GLib 2.24.

* GLib 2.26 will be source and binary compatible with
the GLib 2.24 series; however, the new API additions
in GLib 2.25.6 are not yet finalized, so there may
be incompatibilities between this release and the final
2.26 release.

* Bugs should be reported to GNOME Bugzilla

About GLib

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.

GTK+ - About
