GLib - low-level core library that forms the basis for projects such as
GTK+ and GNOME - has been uploaded to cygwin.com

The GLib library provides data structure handling for C, portability
wrappers, and interfaces for such runtime functionality as an event
loop, threads, dynamic loading, and an object system.  Canonical
website: http://www.gtk.org/

Glib2 consists of four packages:
glib2-2.6.6-1 (required)
glib2-runtime-2.6.6-1 (required)

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Save it and run setup, answer the questions and pick up
'glib2' from the 'Libs' category, if you install it for the first
time, click on the 'skip' field next to 'glib2' until '2.6.6-1' is

Note that downloads from sources.redhat.com (aka cygwin.com) aren't
allowed due to bandwidth limitations.  This means that you will need
to find a mirror which has this update, please choose the one nearest to
