Glib 1.300 (stable) available

Overview of changes in Glib 1.300 (stable): Stable release to coincide with the release of Perl 5.18.0; Since 1.28x (The previous stable release); Ensure timely destruction of initial wrapper of custom subclasses; Start changing module version numbers in all Perl modules in the distribution, not just lib/; (Bugzilla #690464); Make Glib::Object subclassing more robust; This should in particular fix issues revealed by the change to hash randomization introduced in perl 5.17.6; Correctly handle utf8-encoded strings in GPerlArgv. This should fix issues seen with utf8-encoded strings in @ARGV with, for example, Gtk2->init. View the source in the Gtk2-Perl git repo at or download the source release at
