Release Notes: In g_get_home_dir(), the $HOME variable is no longer ignored, and taken into consideration in favor of GECOS entries. Many minor bugfixes have been made.

Release Notes: The incompatible change to the ->constructed() vfunc was reverted. It is no longer permitted to add interfaces to a class after the first instantiation (or more strictly: after g_type_class_ref()). Two accidentally exported private symbols were properly hidden. GIO now has kqueue support for GFileMonitor (BSDs, Mac OS). A new API g_variant_new_from_bytes() was introduced. UNIX signal sources now allow watching SIGUSR1 and SIGUSR2. Warnings were cleaned up more pedantically. GTask changes were made to avoid a deadlock. URL-encoding of trashed files was fixed.

Release Notes: Signal handlers connected with g_signal_connect_object() are now automatically disconnected on target object destruction. The ->constructed vfunc is now called after all properties are set. g_type_init() is no longer necessary, and has been deprecated. GTask, a new GAsyncResult implementation, has been introduced. Unicode has been updated to 6.2. Various bugfixes and minor improvements have been made.

Release Notes: A security issue, where dbus-launch was run from setuid binaries, was fixed. This was reported as CVE-2012-3524. A new API for getting the icon name for a MIME type, g_content_type_get_generic_icon_name(), was added. GVFS_INOTIFY_DIAG was dropped. Several introspection fixes were made. Further minor bugs were fixed. Documentation was improved. Translations were updated.

Release Notes: A G_DEFINE_QUARK macro was added. Symbolic icon support to drive, volume, and mount, file, and content types was added. An API to allow thread-safe access to the same qdata item was implemented. Many minor bugs were fixed.
