version compatibility

from IRC:

08:06AM <Pik> I don't exactly know how is organized the development so the follo
wing question may be stupid...
08:07AM <Pik> is gtk2_perl a 2.2 or 2.4
08:07AM <Pik> or just 2.x
08:07AM <Pik> and is it possible to bind 2.6 stuff like GtkIconView ?

gtk2-perl works with all versions of gtk+ 2.x. Newer versions of the bindings add support for the widgets and features of newer versions of gtk+. In all cases, the bindings must be built against the most recent version of gtk+ you want to support.

 Gtk2                        Supports
version      gtk+ 2.0  gtk+ 2.2  gtk+ 2.4  gtk+ 2.6
---------    --------  --------  --------  --------
  1.00x        yes       yes
  1.02x        yes       yes
  1.04x        yes       yes       yes
  1.06x        yes       yes       yes
  1.08x        yes       yes       yes       yes

You can build Gtk2 1.04x against gtk+ 2.6.0, but it will not contain support for any of the new widgets in gtk+ 2.6 because 1.04x of the bindings simply doesn't know they exist.

Chris: That explains all that gravity.
