Great news, I was just going through the updated packages on a Centos box (Centos 6.5 has just been released) and I noticed glib has been rebased from 2.22.5 to 2.26.1.

This version update is significant as there were a few applications that I wasn't able to build and package up for EL6 as they required glib >=2.26. I can't remember right now which apps but as soon as I have time for it I will check through my failed build attempts and then reattempt to build those packages.

My personal SL6 repository, specialized in audio/video software:

Yes, CentOS 6.5 is already out, and also the Oracle clone. I'm in no hurry to upgrade, so I will just wait for SL 6.5.
