Gtk2 1.072 (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 1.06x
stable series.  The API is frozen in accordance with the Gnome 2.10
schedule.  Report any bugs to gtk-perl-list AT gnome DOT org as soon as
possible.  Please use the stable 1.06x 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=295783

...and from anonymous cvs, tagged "rel-1-07-2" in the directory
/gtk2-perl-xs/Gtk2 .

This module requires these other modules and libraries:

   perl >= 5.8.0
   Glib >= 1.070 (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
