This is a bug fix release and is source and binary compatible
with 2.4.0. The main reason for this release is a bug in the routines 
converting between filenames and URIs, which can cause problems when
used with filenames which are not encoded in UTF-8.

What is 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.
