ANNOUNCE: GTK+ and GLib 1.2.0 Released

                       GTK+ Version 1.2 Released
The GTK+ development team is pleased to announce the release of
version 1.2 of the GIMP Toolkit.
GTK+ is a multi-platform open source GUI Toolkit. Everything about
GTK+ from the object-oriented design to the Free Software LGPL
licensing allows you to code your project with the most freedom
possible. You can develop open software, free software, or even
commercial non-free software without having to spend a dime for
licenses or royalties.

GTK+ is a set of libraries to create graphical user interfaces. It
works on many Unix-like platforms, and a Windows version is in
development. GTK+ is released under the GNU Library General Public
License (GNU LGPL), which allows for flexible licensing of client
applications. GTK+ has a C-based object-oriented architecture that
allows for maximum flexibility.  Bindings for other languages have
been written, including C++, Objective-C, Guile/Scheme, Perl, Python,
TOM, Ada95, Free Pascal, and Eiffel.

GTK+ consists of the following component libraries:
 o GLib. Provides many useful data types, macros, type conversions,
      string utilities and a lexical scanner. Includes Win32 support.
 o GDK. A wrapper for low-level windowing functions.
 o GTK. An advanced widget set.

New and improved features in version 1.2 include:

 o Theme support. Dynamically change the appearance of your GTK+
 o Thread support. Including POSIX threads, Solaris threads and
      experimental NSPR threads support.
 o New Drag and Drop (DND) support. Both the XDND and Motif protocols
      are supported, and the programmer is presented with a single,
      unified interface.
 o Runtime loading of dynamic modules.
 o 300 Page Tutorial.
 o Internationalization of standard dialogs.
 o Wide character support for text widgets.
 o New widgets:
    - new multi-column Tree widget
    - font selection dialog
    - plug/socket widgets for inter-application embedding
    - calendar widget
    - item factory
 o Enhanced functionality to many GTK+ 1.0 widgets

GTK+ is already being used in many major projects, such as the GIMP
and GNOME projects. Don't get left out!

GTK+ is also being ported to Win32. For further information see:
