ANNOUNCE: gtkmm 2.1.2

*** gtkmm 2.2

gtkmm provides a C++ interface to GTK+. gtkmm 2.2 wraps GTK+ 2.2

We expect no major changes before gtkmm 2.2.0. Please consider this a release 

Like GTK+ 2.2, gtkmm 2.2 contains only API addition, without API or ABI
breakage. We might do bug-fixing work on gtkmm 2.0, but most work will
happen on HEAD, because a stable GTK+ 2.2.0 has already been released.

Contrary to the gtkmm 2.0.2 announcement, gtkmm 2.0.2 will not build
with GTK+ 2.1.x, due to minor API breakage in GTK+. 

*** Changes


* Gtk::Clipboard API finished, with examples, and a book chapter:
  (Murray Cumming, Daniel Elstner)
* Gtk::TreeView: Some drag-and-drop API improvements, with examples.

* Gtk::TreeModelSort added. (Daniel Elstner)
* Glib::RefPtr: Added swap(). (Daniel Elstner)
* Gtk::ColorSelection: catch exceptions. (Daniel Elstner)
* Gdk::Pixmap: Prevent rare segfault in creation. (Daniel Elstner)
* Gtk::AccelGroup::activate(): Implemented as a wrapper of 
  gtk_accel_groups_activate().  (Daniel Elstner)
* Glib::file_open_tmp() and Glib::file_open_contents() implemented.
  (Daniel Elstner)
* win32: Glib::Dispatcher compilation fix. (Naofumi Yasufuku)
