This is a development release leading up to GTK+ 2.20.


 * This is an unstable development release.
   It has had only little testing and there are unfinished
   features and plenty of bugs in this release. It should
   definitively not be used in production.

 * Installing this version will overwrite your existing
   copy of GTK+ 2.18. If you have problems, you'll need
   to reinstall GTK+ 2.18.

 * GTK+ 2.20 will be source and binary compatible with
   the GTK+ 2.18 series; however, the new API additions
   are not yet finalized, so there may be incompatibilities
   between this release and the final 2.20 release.

 * 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.
