GTK+ 2.11.3 released

GTK+ 2.11.3 is now available for download at:

gtk+-2.11.3.tar.bz2   md5sum: 49c53959df501a48c2cba834d1993508
gtk+-2.11.3.tar.gz    md5sum: 84b6c30467cc089ef1dcffe1d1f51906

This is the fourth development release leading up to GTK+ 2.12.


 * This is unstable development release. While it has had
   a bit of testing, 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+ 2.10. If you have problems, you'll need
   to reinstall GTK+ 2.10.

 * GTK+ 2.12 will be source and binary compatible with
   the GTK+ 2.10 series; however, the new API additions
   are not yet finalized, so there may be incompatibilities 
   between this release and the final 2.12 release. 
   In particular, the following API additions are still
   being considered for inclusion:
   166995  Need gtk_radio_button_get_group_active_index()
   318807  Offscreen windows and window redirection

 * Bugs should be reported to

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.
