GTK+ 2.13.6 released

GTK+ 2.13.6 is now available for download at:

gtk+-2.13.6.tar.bz2  md5sum: d9b3455d4639d44073abd1fb89d0c7b9

This is the seventh development release leading up to GTK+ 2.14.


 * 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+. If you have problems, you'll need
   to reinstall GTK+ 2.12.

 * GTK+ 2.14 will be source and binary compatible with
   the GTK+ 2.12 series. The new API additions in GTK+ 2.13
   are finalized at this point.

 * 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+ 2.13.5 to 2.13.6

* Fix problems on 64-bit Windows

* Fix a long-standing, well-known problem with the handling
  of insensitive buttons, bug 56070

* Fallback to Xinerama if the Xrandr implementation
  is just a stub

* gdk_threads_add_timeout_seconds[_full]: New functions with
  second-granularity to complete the set of gdk_threads_ timeout

* Support rendering icons with emblems specified as GEmblemedIcon

* GtkFileChooser has a GFile-oriented API now, functions
  for creating filechoosers with specific backends have been

  for all struct fields.
