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+ 2.10.6 to 2.10.7

* GtkNotebook 
 - Tab reordering is a less intrusive
 - Rendering fixes on win32

* GtkTreeView
  - Column resizing works correctly in right-to-left languages
  - Many scrolling bugs have been fixed

* GtkTextView:
  - Improved scrolling during DND.

* GtkRecentManager is more robust against bad URIs

* Print support:
 - The cups backend works with 'BrowseShortNames Off' 
   in the cups configuration
 - Multi-valued options are properly passed to cups
 - Fix build with cups 1.3
 - A few IPP compliance issues have been fixed
 - Make the lpr backend work on BSD

* Input methods:
 - GtkEntryCompletion works with input methods
 - The Thai input method has been replace by a functional
   Thai and Lao input method based on libthai

* Accessibility support:
 - GtkMessageDialog sets accessible name role explicitly

* Theme support:
 - The semantics of the gtk-color-scheme setting has been
   slightly changed. Values from rc files are still merged
   together, but the X setting just overrides the prior table.

* GdkPixbuf:
 - gdk_pixbuf_loader_write() now closes the loader when 
   returning FALSE, as documented
 - The BMP loader supports more BMP variants, including 
   transparency and 10-bit channels.
