GTK+-2.0.8 released

GTK+-2.0.8 is now available for download at:

This release mainly fixes two critical bugs in 2.0.7:

 - Typo in io-gif.c that caused GIFs not to be loadable
   by gdk-pixbuf.
 - Incompatibility between the libtool used for generating
   the tarball and older versions of binutils on Linux.

It is source and binary compatible with previous releases in the 
GTK+-2.0 series.

What is GTK+

GTK+ is a multi-platform toolkit for creating graphical user
interfaces. Offering a complete set of widgets, GTK+ is suitable for
projects ranging from small one-off tools to complete application

GTK+ has been designed from the ground up to support a range of
languages, not only C/C++. Using GTK+ from languages such as Perl and
Python (especially in combination with the Glade GUI builder) provides
an effective method of rapid application development.

GTK+ is free software and part of the GNU Project. However, the
licensing terms for GTK+, the GNU LGPL, allow it to be used by all
pdevelopers, including those developing proprietary software, without
any license fees or royalties.
