The second development version of the upcoming Glib 2.38 library for the GNOME 3.10 desktop environment was released for testing a few days ago.

The good news is that Glib 2.37.1 brings support for Installed Tests, which allows individual component maintainers to write and execute automake-style "make check" tests.

Glib 2.37.1 also adds a new g_test_trap_subprocess() function, which works on the Microsoft Windows operating system, as a replacement for the g_test_trap_fork() function.

Moreover, support for explicitly canceling a gobject property binding has been implemented, as well as performance improvements for signal argument handling, and improved manpages, by adding missing flags and arguments.

Starting with this version, quotes are no longer used in the log messages generated by the Glib library. Many translations have been updated and lots of bugs have been fixed. For more details, please check out the official raw changelog.

Download Glib 2.37.1 right now from Softpedia. Remember that this is a development version and it should NOT be installed on production machines. It is intended for testing purposes only.
