This is the third development release loading up to GTK+ 2.8.  


 * This is unstable development release. There are certainly 
   plenty of bugs remaining to be found. This release should 
   not be used in production.

 * Installing this version will overwrite your existing
   copy of GTK+ 2.6. If you have problems, you'll need
   to reinstall GTK+ 2.6.8.

 * GTK+ 2.8 will be source and binary compatible with the GTK+ 
   2.6.x series; the new API additions in GTK+ 2.7.2 are 
   practically finished, although a small number of API-affecting 
   bugs are still under consideration.

 * Remaining issues for GTK+ 2.8 can be found with following
   bugzilla query:

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
developers, including those developing proprietary software, without
any license fees or royalties.
