GTK+ 2.91.2 is now available for download at:

This is a development release leading toward 3.0.


 * GTK+ 3 will be parallel installable with GTK+ 2.x, and this release
   has been prepared to test this by renaming all .pc files, libraries,
   include paths, and so forth, to include a '3.0' component.

 * GTK+ 3 will remove deprecated API from the GTK+ 2.x series and make
   struct members unavailable that have been GSEALed in 2.x. Therefore,
   applications can be prepared for porting to GTK+ 3 by making sure
   that they build with -DGTK_DISABLE_DEPRECATED and -DGSEAL_ENABLE.
   For more information about porting concerns, see the porting guide
   that is included in the API docs.

 * 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.

 - The deprecated GtkComboBoxEntry subclass has been removed
 - The deprecated combo box text convenience API has been removed

 - Add gtk_recent_info_create_app_info()

* GtkProgressBar, GtkSpinButton, GtkEntry and GtkCalendar no longer have
  their own input-output window

* gtk_widget_hide_all() has been removed

  GdkColor APIs have GdkRGBA counterparts now.
