Re: GTK+, & GLIB Questions

To whom it may concern,
We received a security issue from Hewlett Packard regarding the version GLIB-1.2.10, & GTK+-1.2.10 (Which we currently have installed), I went to your site and noticed that you now have version 2.6.2 available. This server that currently has the older version running is very important to my client. My question is this can I upgrade to 2.6.2 for both GLIB, & GTK without any disruption to our system and still know that the product will be available for the users that utilize it? And if not what version can we upgrade to to eliminate the security issue and where would I find the product at?

In fact all major distributions use to install both 1.2 and 2.x versions of glib and gtk, as some old (may be unmantained) free software program uses gtk+-1.2. Note however, that old programs load gtk+-1.2 and new programs load gtk+-2.0 when executed, that is, both the old and the new versions of these libraries must be installed in the system, you can not remove gtk+-1.2 and just replace it for gtk+-2.0 in the hope that the old programs load and work OK with gtk+-2.x, they are not binary compatible.
