This is another development release leading up to GTK+ 2.12.
* 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
* Installing this version will overwrite your existing
copy of GTK+ 2.10. If you have problems, you'll need
to reinstall GTK+ 2.10.
* GTK+ 2.12 will be source and binary compatible with
the GTK+ 2.10 series; most API additions have been
finalized at this point, but there may still be
incompatibilities between this release and the final
2.12 release. In particular, the tooltips api changes
are not complete yet.
* Bugs should be reported to http://bugzilla.gnome.org.
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.
