just a small add-on, fresh from the commit factory:
the tooltip-markup property now has a sister called tooltip-text,
which will set the tooltip as plain text, escaping the eventual
markup entities; if you're setting tooltips on widgets from external
data sources (file names, desktop entries, whatever) you won't have
to pass through g_markup_escape_text() first.
both the tooltip-markup and the tooltip-text properties also have
accessors. finally, along with gtk_tooltip_set_markup() mentioned
below, now there's a gtk_tooltip_set_text() as well.
kudos to kris for implementing this rocking API for tooltips: it was
sorely needed and he did a wonderful job. if you're coming to GUADEC
this year, be sure to buy kris a pint!
