Gtk2 1.051 (unstable)

Gtk2 is a Perl extension providing Perl bindings to the 2.x series of the Gtk+ graphical user interface library. This module allows you to write graphical user interfaces in a perlish and object-oriented way, freeing you from the casting and memory management in C, yet remaining very close in spirit to original API. Find out more about Gtk+ at , and about Gtk2-Perl at .

This is an unstable development release of Gtk2, containing new features and other cool stuff that have been added since the 1.04x stable series. The API is not frozen and things are subject to change at any time. Report any bugs to gtk-perl-list AT gnome DOT org as soon as possible. Please use the stable 1.04x series for important work.

The source code is available from the gtk2-perl project page on sourceforge: group_id=64773&package_id=91218&release_id=249169

...and from anonymous cvs, tagged "rel-1-05-1" in the directory /gtk2-perl-xs/Gtk2 .

This module requires these other modules and libraries:

  perl >= 5.8.0
  Glib >= 1.050 (perl module)
  GTK+ > 2.x (C library and prerequisites)

In order to build it from source, you'll also need

  ExtUtils::Depends >= 0.2
  ExtUtils::PkgConfig >= 1.03
  development headers for gtk+ and friends
