The GNOME developers announced a few day ago the immediate availability for download and testing of another development version (2.37.6) of the GLib library for the GNOME desktop environment.

What's new in GLib 2.37.6? Well, according to the official release notes, tests using the GTest facilities can now generate TAP output format, the generic type fallback logic has been fixed for -symbolic, null icon was set to icon list, and GSocket can now reuse address or port on the Mac OS X operating system.

Some dtrace-related warnings have been fixed, as well as gdbus-codegen issues with Unicode chars when using Python 3.x or later. Support for using the clang analyzer has been added, the G_SPAWN_DEFAULT API to GSpawnFlags has been implemented, UTC time is now used in test_GDateTime_diff() for glib/tests/gdatetime, and a new method of reporting critical errors has been implemented.
