GTK+-DirectFB version 2.0.0 released


GTK+-DirectFB implements a GDK backend for GTK+-2.0.0 based on
DirectFB, a graphics hardware abstraction layer for the Linux
framebuffer. As DirectFB provides drawing functions, a windowing
stack and manages input devices, this is a lightweight GDK port.
Due to the use of DirectFB, graphic operations are hardware
accelerated if a suitable DirectFB gfx driver is available.
Since DirectFB is a very thin libary, GTK+-DirectFB has a small
memory footprint which makes it the perfect choice for embedded

GTK+-DirectFB also adds some extra functionality like alpha
transparent window surfaces and a per-window opacity setting.
At the moment not all GTK+-2.0 features are fully implemented,
but the port is in relatively good shape and should be useable
for a wide range of applications.

Based on the GTK+-2.0.0 release, we have created a tarball for
you that has the DirectFB patches already applied. Check the
GTK+-DirectFB page at for more

Salut, Sven
