ANNOUNCE: gtkmm 1.3.2

*** gtkmm 1.3.2 

gtkmm provides a C++ interface to GTK+. This unstable branch of gtkmm
wraps gtk+ 1.3.x, which will become gtk+ 2.0. 

This alpha release shows the progress that we have made since 
gtkmm 1.3.1 last month. It should build with the recent gtk+ 1.3.12 

*** Changes since gtkmm 1.3.1 

* No more gint, gdouble, gfloat, glong: 
  We use normal C++ types instead. (Murray Cumming) 
* Signals are now used via accessors, and SigC::slot() requires a 
  reference to the instance instead of a pointer. 
  For instance, 
    gtkmm 1.2: 
      button.clicked.connect(SigC::slot(this, &Something::somemethod)); 
    gtkmm 1.3: 
  (Karl Nelson) 
* Properties are used via accessors. For instance: 
  (Karl Nelson) 
* Removed any uses of Glib::nstring: 
  We provide an additional method instead of allowing a null value. 
  e.g. remove_something() instead of set_something(0). (Daniel Elstner) 
* Improved gtkmmproc installation: 
  For use by, for instance, libgnomeuimm and libgnomecanvasmm. 
(Murray Cumming) 
* Menu wrappers updated for GTK+2. (Murray Cumming) 
* Another gtkmmproc overhaul. It now detects more .defs format errors, 
  warns about as yet unwrapped functions, and is faster. (Karl Nelson) 
* More api review and fixes. 
  (Murray Cumming, Daniel Elstner, Gergo Erdi, Karl Nelson) 

Note also that we now use libsigc++-1.1.5 which contains some
segfault-related fixes. This means, for example, that the
segfault-on-quit problems in our gtk-demo are gone. 

*** Known problems 

* gtk-demo "stock browser" doesn't work yet. 

*** Download 

gtkmm-1.3.2 is available here:

You will need the alpha release of libsigc++1.1, available here:

If you wish to install this in parallel with gtk--1.2, you will first 
need to update to the latest libsigc++1.0.x, available here:

*** Description 

This is an alpha release, so that you can see the changes 
compared with gtkmm 1.2. Development is heavily underway, so this might 
be significantly out-of-date by the time you receive this. You can find 
cvs instructions here:

The CHANGES file describes some of the more significant differences 
compared to gtkmm 1.2:

There is also ongoing discussion on the mailing list:
and in the #C++ channel on 

There isn't much point in installing this yet, but you should be able to
run the examples and demos. Please do not package this release as rpm, 
deb, etc.
