New release of GTK+ libraries (1.3.13)

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

The JPEG/PNG/TIFF libraries and pkg-config 0.8 are needed to compile this
release. These are available at:

 (pkg-config latest canonical upstream location is
  at - note that 
  it has moved from sourceforge. But mirrors the 
  0.8 version you need to build GTK 1.3.10)

You will also need "libiconv" on systems with C libraries that lack
the iconv() function:

And the libintl library from the GNU "gettext" package if your C
library doesn't have gettext() functionality:

Library Descriptions

GLib 1.3.13	(
  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 0.24	(
  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 0.10	(
  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+ 1.3.13	(
  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 people working on ports of applications to
the upcoming GTK+-2.0 release of GTK+. While these libraries have been
in extensive use for several months, there are considerable numbers
of known bugs that still need to be fixed, and presumably more that
have not yet been found.

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 it.

The API is frozen at this point. No additional API changes are
anticipated before GTK+-2.0 is released.

Some API changes were found to be necessary between GTK+-1.3.12 and
GTK+-1.3.13; these are marked with (*) in the above list. These
changes are mostly small additions and are not expected to cause
significant problems for application developers.

Binary interfaces for these libraries are not yet frozen; applications
built against these libraries will need to be rebuilt when the
final GTK+-2.0.0 is released.

 Pango:      gtk-i18n-list gnome org
