GTK+ 2.11.6 released

gtk+-2.11.6.tar.bz2   md5sum: 2b35ce357e138af23c52e4bceb1a63a0

This is an API-frozen development release leading up to 
GTK+ 2.12. GTK+ 2.12 is expected to be released before the 
end of August.


 * 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
   in production.

 * 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; the API additions have been 
   finalized at this point.

 * 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.
