short answer:  when RHEL 6 releases one.

which very well may be 'never' as changing lib versions tends to break 
binary compatibility.

instead, they'll backport any critical fixes to the version they 
distribute, which appears to be 2.22, currently at 2.22.5-6 (where the 
-6 number is the EL6 variant).

(I'm assuming you're talking about GTK/Gnome glib, and not glibc which 
is currently at 2.12-1.47 in EL6)
