ANNOUNCE: gtkmm 1.3.4

*** gtkmm 1.3.4

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

*** Changes since gtkmm 1.3.3 

* Removed deprecated widgets such as CList, CTree, Text, etc. (Murray Cumming)
* Some exception handling: Use Glib::add_exception_handler() to specify a method
  to be called in the unlikely event that a signal handler throws an exception.
  If it's not used then gtkmm will report the problem and then segfault normally.
  Previously the exception would just be swallowed by the underlying C code and 
  you'd have an uniformative segfault. (Karl Nelson)
* Menu Elements: Menu Elements can now be stored in STL containers. 
  Fixed rare memory leak (Karl Nelson)
* Improved, clearer, more versatile intermediate handle types, for lists/vectors/arrays
  of strings/widgets etc. (Daniel Elstner)
* Improved reference documentation: Signal accessors show the names of the signal handler
  arguments, and Widgets, Containers, and Dialogs can be seen grouped together on their
  own special pages.(Murray Cumming)
* Improved Gtk::TreeView and Gtk::TextView API, using more C++ types.
  (Murray Cumming, Daniel Elstner)

*** Known problems 

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

need to update to the latest libsigc++1.0.x, available here:

*** Description 

This is an unstable 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be significantly out-of-date by the time you receive this.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:
