  1. Meant to do this a while back, so this seems like a very appropriate time: the link to GLib on the Linux download page ( has been out of date for a while. It shows 2.14 and a link to it as the latest. The link on the Windows download page is at 2.16.2 (so not a huge difference, at least).

    Just thought you’d want to know…

  2. John, thanks for your comment, I have updated the link and the Pango link was out of date too! Again, thanks for reporting this.
