This is the first bug fix release in the stable 3.0 series.


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.

Common questions:

GTK+ 3 is a major new version of GTK+, changing the ABI and
the API compared to GTK+ 2.x. This means that GTK+ 2.x applications
will need some adjustments before they can be used with GTK+ 3.
The migration guide at

gives an overview of what is involved in porting to GTK+ 3.
