Overview of changes in GLib 2.57.3

* MinGW-w64 ABI warning: In case you build 64 bit glib without LFS support by
  passing --disable-largefile (not the default) and use GStatBuf, you need to
  rebuild your application as the size of GStatBuf has changed for this case.
  See #1476

Overview of changes in GLib 2.58.0

* Tarball built with `ninja dist`, so if you want to build this release with
  autotools (which is supported), you will need to re-run This
  release, and all micro releases in the 2.58.x series, support being built
  with Meson or autotools. See:

* Fix cancellation of g_subprocess_communicate_async() calls. See !266.

* Drop support for the __int64 type, which further breaks compilation on old
  MSVC versions (before VS2013). See #1313.

* Expose GSettings schema directory in gio-2.0.pc as `schemasdir`. See !274.

* Support v3 of the xdg-desktop-portal network monitor API. See !265, !279.

* Fix G_MODULE_SUFFIX on macOS when GLib is built with Meson — it should be `so`
  rather than `dylib`. Projects that use Meson and the `g_module_build_path()`
  API such as glib-networking should pass `name_suffix:` to `shared_module()` to
  ensure that plugins continue to be called on macOS. See !280.

Bugs fixed:
 !280 meson: Always set G_MODULE_SUFFIX to `so` on macOS
 !266 subprocess: Fix communicate_cancelled signature
 !279 Revert "Add a gnet utility" (see !265)
 !265 Network monitor again
 !274 gio: Provide schemas directory information in pkg-config file
 !239 gvariant: Fix more bounds checking in GVariant text format parser
 !195 garray: add overflow checks before expanding array
 #1497 g_strdup_printf warns on invalid format specifier with G_GUINT64_FORMAT on Win32
 !270 autotools: remove support for the __int64 type. See #1313
 !267 ci: Add an autotools job
