I'm a database developer, so that's my focus here ...

gtk-2.4 brought a decent combo box widget that allows you to store ID / value pairs in a model attached to the combo. This is essential to database work.

gtk-2.6 brought a GtkCellRendererCombo to treeviews. This is also pretty important for database work. gtk-2.6 also has a GtkCellRendererProgress for cool little progress bars in a treeview.

gtk-2.8 was mainly a change to the Cairo rendering backend. This brings rendering improvements ( antialiased shapes, alpha blending, and other cool things ), but there wasn't a lot in 2.8 in the way of new features for developers. That's not to say that it's not worth upgrading for a desktop system, but developers can easily get away with running 2.6.

That's basically it. Check out and for the 2.4 and 2.6 release announcements for full details.

I don't suppose you've managed to build the Gtk2-Perl bindings against gtk-2.6 for Windows?
