This is a development release leading up to GTK+ 2.20.


 * This is an unstable development release.
   It has had only little testing and there are unfinished
   features and plenty of bugs in this release. It should
   definitively not be used in production.

 * Installing this version will overwrite your existing
   copy of GTK+ 2.18. If you have problems, you'll need
   to reinstall GTK+ 2.18.

 * GTK+ 2.20 will be source and binary compatible with
   the GTK+ 2.18 series; however, the new API additions
   are not yet finalized, so there may be incompatibilities
   between this release and the final 2.20 release.

 * 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.

Overview of Changes from GTK+ 2.19.1 to 2.19.2

* Introspection:
 - Introspection data for gdk-pixbuf, gdk and gtk is now
   included in GTK+ itself. As a consequence, the atk dependency
   has been bumped to 2.29.2, and a gobject-introspection dependency
   has been added. configure with --disable-introspection in order
   to not build introspection data.

* Client-side windows:
 - Fix some issues with handling of button and motion events
 - Fix damage reporting for drawing on offscreen windows
 - Fix problems with handling of input extension events

* Printing:
 - Add api to handle printer hard margins

* Simple IM Context:
 - Sync with Xorg compose file
 - Make Compose-vowel-minus combinations consistent

* GDK:
 - gdk_screen_get_primary_monitor: New function to get the
   'primary' monitor in a multi-monitor setup

* gdk-pixbuf has gained the ability to store and retrieve embedded
  ICC color profiles in png and tiff images

* Keyboard handling:
 - Mnemonic underlines can now optionally be hidden until the Alt key
   is pressed, this can be turned on with the gtk-auto-mnemonics setting
 - Using the Super, Meta and Hyper modifiers in accelerators is working
   more reliably
