This is a development release leading toward 3.0.


 * GTK+ 3 will be parallel installable with GTK+ 2.x, and
   this release has been prepared to test this by renaming
   all .pc files, libraries, include paths, and so forth,
   to include a '3.0' component.

 * GTK+ 3 will remove deprecated API from the GTK+ 2.x series
   and make struct members unavailable that have been GSEALed
   in 2.x. Therefore, applications can be prepared for porting
   to GTK+ 3 by making sure that they build with
   and -DGSEAL_ENABLE. For more information about porting concerns,
   see the porting guide that is included in the API docs.

 * 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.
