General Development Ulrich Dreeper, the glibc maintainer, details on his blog the main features of version 2.10 of the library: POSIX 2008, C++ compliance, C++ 201x support, DNS NSS improvement, use NSS in libcrypt, printf hooks and, perhaps more interesting, better malloc scalability.

Fully agree.
Using normal flat structures would have been far more useful.

Or providing versioned reader functions that can query the otherwise opaque structure returned from mallinfo(). It's not a hard problem to solve. Looks like Ulrich just wanted to throw up his hands and let someone else deal with it. Fortunately, it's not something I really care about, so it's no big deal either way for me.
