I'm not aware of any bugs related to new glib/gtk+ breaking packages
in recent times. Probably because Mart (leio) does a really good job
of combing through the ChangeLogs and making sure that there aren't
For instance, with gtk+-2.18, there are major changes which break
rendering in apps, so it won't be brazenly added to tree (likely
will get a p.mask like you say). However, glib-2.22 has no such
changes, and will be the first thing to get added to tree as ~arch
part of GNOME 2.28.
1. Client-Side windows (csw) /will/ break apps; there has been
extensive testing upstream, but breakage is inevitable.
