GLib-2.3.5 released [unstable]

GLib-2.3.5 is now available for download at:

glib-2.3.5.tar.bz2     md5sum: 012e427d9efb12713357648f585b1d25

This is the last development release loading up to GLib-2.4,
which is scheduled for release in one week on March 8.
Please test.

The most interesting change since 2.3.3 is the addition of 
functions for atomic operations on integers and pointers.
Other changes consist mostly of small API enhancements
and bug fixes. (The 2.3.4 version number was skipped
for consistency with GTK+ numbering.)


 * This is an unstable development release. While it has had
   fairly extensive testing, there are likely bugs
   remaining to be found. This release should not be used
   in production.

 * Installing this version will overwrite your existing
   copy of GLib-2.2. If you have problems, you'll need
   to reinstall GLib-2.2.4.

 * Bugs should be reported to
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.
