Gtk2 1.171 (unstable) available

Overview of changes in Gtk2 1.171

* Avoid syntax that was causing perl errors in Gtk2::Builder::_do_connect on
  some platforms.
* Add bindings for GtkIMContext, GtkIMContextSimple, and GtkIMMulticontext.
* Improve the documentation in various places.
* Make Gtk2::Gdk::Color::new take an optional pixel value.
* Correct the way we check values for definedness: use Glib's
  gperl_sv_defined(), an XS version of perl's defined().  Among other things,
  this should fix the problems where tied values were reported as undefined.
* Plug memory leaks.

This is an unstable development release of Gtk2, containing new
features and other cool stuff that have been added since the 1.16x
stable series.  Report any bugs to gtk-perl-list AT gnome DOT org as
soon as possible.  Please use the stable 1.16x series for important

The source code is available from the gtk2-perl project page on  

...and from anonymous cvs, tagged "rel-1-17-1" in the directory  

This module requires these other modules and libraries:

   perl >= 5.8.0
   Glib >= 1.171 (perl module)
   GTK+ > 2.x (C library and prerequisites)

If GTK+ is as new or newer as 2.8, the Cairo module is also required:

  Cairo >= 1.00 (Perl module)

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

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
