Back from GUADEC, still a bit tired though. Thanks to all the helpers who made this happen! It was nice to see all those people again and talk to them. Sat down with wim to discuss atomic reference counting issues for GObject. We’ve figured most of the issues, but GClosure is still giving a bit of a headache, because its reference count is part of a bitfield.
