GTK+ 2.13.1 released

GTK+ 2.13.1 is now available for download at:

gtk+-2.13.1.tar.bz2   md5sum: 16f57400a352aadda4b19f95aed14d0c
gtk+-2.13.1.tar.gz    md5sum: 19875a16e2b1db06ac4d0e9744f0c3a4

This is the second 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; however, the new API additions
   are not yet finalized, so there may be incompatibilities 
   between this release and the final 2.14 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.
