New release of GTK+ libraries (1.3.5)

A new release of the development versions of GTK+ and associated
libraries (GLib, Pango, Atk) is available at:

GLib 1.3.5

 GLib is the low-level core library that forms the basis of GTK+ and
 GNOME. It provides data structure handling for C, portability
 wrappers, and interfaces for such runtime functionality as an event
 loop, threads, dynamic loading, and an object system.

Pango 0.16

 Pango is a library for layout and rendering of text, with an 
 emphasis on internationalization. It forms the core of
 text and font handling for GTK+-2.0.

Atk 0.1

 The ATK library provides a set of interfaces for accessibility.
 By supporting the ATK interfaces, an application or toolkit can
 be used such as tools such as screen readers, magnifiers,
 and alternative input devices.

GTK+ 1.3.5

 GTK+ is a widget toolkit for X and other windowing systems. It 
 is used in such projects as the GIMP and GNOME.


This release is meant for:

 * Those interested in the development of GTK+. 
 * People planning to port to the upcoming GTK+-2.0 version of GTK+.

   Note: the API is mostly frozen at this point. Major API changes
   beyond the remaining open '2.0 API freeze' bugs in bugzilla are
   unlikely to occur before GTK+-2.0 is released.

This is a an unstable preview release and should not be used in
production. Only minimal testing has been done, and we expect that
significant bugs and portability problems remain at this point.

This release is incompatible with GTK+ and GLib 1.2.x. Software that
has not been explicitly ported will not compile with this version.  Do
not send bug reports about such compilation problems to either us or
maintainers of software that uses GLib and GTK+ 1.2.x; The currently
supported version of GLib and GTK+ is version 1.2.10.

If you install these libraries, do NOT replace your current GLib
and GTK+ packages with them; these libraries are designed so they
can be installed in parallel with a GTK+ install without affecting

Comments should be sent to:

 GLib, GTK+: gtk-devel-list gnome org

 Pango:      gtk-i18n-list gnome org

 ATK:        gnome-accessibility-list gnome org

Bug reports should be filed in the GNOME bug tracker at:

Source and binary packages of these libraries build against Red Hat
7.1 can be found at:

The source RPMS can most likely be rebuilt and installed on other
RPM-based Linux distributions.
