This is the third development release loading up to GLib-2.6.
This release contains a number of bug and portability fixes
and some new API.
 * This is unstable development release. While it has had
   fairly extensive 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-2.4. If you have problems, you'll need
   to reinstall GLib-2.4.7.
 * GLib-2.6 will be source and binary compatible with
   the GLib-2.4.x series; however, the new API additions
   in GLib-2.5.0 are not yet finalized, so there may
   be incompatibities between this release and the final
   2.6 release.
 * Remaining API issues for GLib-2.6 can be found with following
   bugzilla query:
