Re: GTK+ 2.6.1 released


Ok this is more of a personal 'itch'. But it would be really nice to
mention that there is Ruby and Ruby bindings for Gtk+ and friends for
RAD (with good English Documentation).

As you would have probably guessed, I use ruby too. And I just feel that
giving some attention to ruby, since its becoming popular too, would be
nice. I always find announcements for core Gtk+ and Gnome libraries
mentioning python bindings and not ruby bindings.

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.
