Upgrade glib2 in current?


A few programs I recently tried to compile depend on newer versions (>2.36).
glib-2.36.1 compiles just fine under current so I was wondering ...

I agree with marrowsuck, it's probably a goo idea to upgrade glib2, gtk+3, pango, pixman, libgphoto2........................

easystroke and webkit.
I understand that this is a critical update -- the ChangeLog mentions several incompatible changes.
I just went ahead and upgraded to 2.36.1. No problems so far. I report any errors.

I looked at easystroke and see no direct linkage to glib2 in there, although it uses a few libraries that would link to it.

While there's a very good change that the gtk+3 related libraries will see an update, I'm more hesitant to do the same on the gtk+2 side. That's the "stable" branch that a lot of thing depend upon, and it wasn't all that long ago that we updated those and endured a lot of breakage. I haven't yet looked to see what all the differences are, but given past experiences I would expect to see a lot of widely used functions deprecated or removed. I will do some research on it though and see what I can find out.
