[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.38.2, Package name: glib2-2.38.2, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

GLib provides the core application building blocks for libraries
and applications written in C. It provides the core object system
used in GNOME, the main loop implementation, and a large set of
utility functions for strings and common data structures.

This package contains GLib version 2.

Overview of changes from GLib 2.38.1 to 2.38.2

 * GCancellableSource will now dispatch for each time a cancellable is
   cancelled (ie: in the case that it was reset) but this is still
   considered undefined behaviour

 * fix g_source_add_child_source() thread safety issues

 * add workaround for buggy D-Bus daemons when path-matching on '/'

 * fallback to pathname queryinfo to help g_file_copy() work on gvfs
   filesystems that don't implement query_info_on_read()

 * don't crash if loading a DBusActivatable application from keyfile

 * fix crash when replacing a symlink with another using GIO

 * add a fallback for '-symbolic' icons to the non-symbolic form

Overview of changes from GLib 2.38.0 to 2.38.1

 * Fix error code checks when SOCK_CLOEXEC is defined but not supported
   (fix support for GNU/Hurd)

 * g_settings_list_children: only list viable schemas
   (fix gsettings list-recursively crashes with invalid schemas installed)

 * GDBusObjectManagerClient: Fix typo in the /org/freedesktop/DBus path
   when adding match rules

 * Various -Werror=format-nonliteral fixes

 * gmessages: fix clang annotations to work with older versions

 * gio: don't dist (generated file) gnetworking.h

 * Restore gl_GLIBC21 to configure; needed for libcharset

What's new in Glib 2.38

 * Application support

  - GIO now provides an implementation of Desktop Actions from the
    desktop entry specification

  - GApplication now implements the org.freedesktop.Application
    interface as per the desktop entry specification, allowing for
    standards-based D-Bus launching of GLib-based applications

  - GDesktopAppInfo now supports DBusActivatable as per the desktop
    entry specification, allowing GLib-based applications to use D-Bus
    to launch other applications

  - GApplication now has a "busy" flag that can be set on an application
    to allow the shell to show that it is busy

 * GObject

  - the private offset for a given class type is now always constant.
    This was done by reorganising the memory layout of instances so that
    the private data comes before the "official" pointer for the object
    (ie: at a negative offset).  Valgrind macros were added to mitigate
    any problems that this may have caused.

  - a new G_DEFINE_TYPE_WITH_PRIVATE has been added along with a
    generated function *_get_instance_private() that can now serve as an
    equally-performing alternative to ->priv pointers in instances
    (allowing memory savings)

    provide a convenient method of converting between named variables in
    private structures and their (now constant) offsets

  - installing properties on a GObjectClass must now be done from
    class_init.  It is no longer valid to install them after class_init
    has returned.

  - it is now possible to manually break a GObject property binding
    without destroying one of the objects involved

 * Icons

  - the requirements for implementing the GIcon interface have changed
    in order to make it possible to consume all implementations of GIcon
    with a finite number of cases

  - a new GBytesIcon type was added for an icon represented by an
    in-memory binary blob in a known image format (ideally png).

  - new APIs g_icon_serialize() and g_icon_deserialize() replace the old
    to/from_string APIs and will always work, irrespective of which
    types have been initialised in the calling process, allowing for a
    serialised GdkPixbuf to be deserialised in a process that doesn't
    have GdkPixbuf

  - support for icons has been added to GMenuModel using the new APIs

 * Actions and menus

  - GPropertyAction provides a convenient way of creating a stateful
    property corresponding to a property on a GObject, such as the
    "visible-child-name" property of a GtkStack

  - new API g_menu_remove_all()

  - we now have established rules about what is a "valid" action name
    and an API to check them

  - a new API for converting detailed action names to and from the
    split-out name and parameter value (as GVariant)

  - for backwards compatibility, invalid action names can still be used
    with most functions, but this is not recommended

 * Other GIO

  - GDBus now supports services that wish to handle some of all
    properties on an interface asynchronously, without requiring the
    service to reimplement the entire org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties

  - GFile now has a new _measure_disk_usage() (and async) API for
    recursively determining the amount of disk space used by a
    particular directory (akin to 'du').

  - asynchronous version of g_file_trash() and g_file_make_directory()
    have been added

 * Other new API

  - GRegex has a new function to query the maximum lookbehind length to
    allow for regexp matching on streams

  - GVariant has two new APIs for constructing strings that allow
    avoiding copies in some cases: g_variant_new_take_string() and

 * Testing

  - we can now generate TAP output

  - new support functions for simplifying the process of dealing with
    data files for srcdir != builddir and installed test cases

  - g_test_trap_subprocess() provides a portable alternative to

 * Other

  - GLib now builds on Android against the bionic C library

  of a property on an object, and allows to change the value when
