A glass can break in a thousand ways, you need to be more specific
- what kind of glass
- what kind of damage
first thing that comes in mind is an accelerometer that just detect the force of an impact

You can also detect change in temperature of a wind flow or ...

How about a thin trace of conductive ink on the inside surface of the glass?  Then it is a simple reading of an input to monitor the trace for continuity.

Why not use an actual glass breakage sensor?  They make different types too.

Experience, it's what you get when you were expecting something else.

These are some Application Note for the Texas Instruments MSP430

MSP430 is a microcontroller that is somewhat similar to the Atmega used with Arduino,
maybe you will find some useful informations.
