GTK+ 2.15.2 released

GTK+ 2.15.2 is now available for download at:

gtk+-2.15.2.tar.bz2  md5sum: 1c230eeb1bf24b69b480d0a35da34794

This is another development release leading up to GTK+ 2.16.


 * 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+ 2.14.

 * GTK+ 2.16 will be source and binary compatible with
  the GTK+ 2.14 series. The API additions in GTK+ 2.15
  are finalized at this point, only minor API changes 
  are expected to happen between 2.15.2 and 2.16.

 * 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.
