Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 966722
Include a UTF-8 safe escaping function
Last modified: 2013-06-02 09:45:39 EDT
Description of problem:
g_strescape() is useless since it mangles UTF-8. We should
include a less aggressive escaping function.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
g_strescape not correctly working with UTF8 strings
Of this bug depends encoding problems in empathy.
Work is being done in GNOME BZ, but I need help from other developers.
Closing the ticket; Empathy has a fix for the escaping issue and the glib new API addition is being tracked upstream.
