[gtkmm] ANNOUNCE: gtkmm 2.3.3 and glibmm 2.3.4

*** gtkmm and glibmm 2.4:

NOTE: This is probably your last chance to comment on the API before the API
freeze. We plan no major changes apart from the use of libsigc++ 2 very soon.
In particular, we NEED access to a SUN box running a recent Forte compiler.

gtkmm provides a C++ interface to GTK+. The 2.3.x tarballs are the unstable 
development series that will become the stable gtkmm 2.4. gtkmm 2.3/2.4 will
wrap any additional API in GTK+ 2.4. glibmm is now a separate module, for use in
non-GUI software.

gtkmm 2.3/2.4 installs in parallel with gtkmm 2.2, so you can install this
unstable library without the risk of breaking existing applications. This allows us
to break ABI and API, though we will try not to break API unless it is absolutely 

But do be aware that the underlying unstable GTK+ 2.3 does not install in 
parallel with GTK+ 2.2, so be careful if you apply it in your normal prefix.

We recommend the use of jhbuild or garnome for testing in a separate prefix.

The stable (API/ABI-frozen) gtkmm 2.4.0 will be released soon after GTK+
gtkmm is on the official GNOME Platform Bindings release schedule:


*** Changes

glibmm 2.3.4:

* ListHandle/SListHandle (intermediate container types):
  - Added a const_cast<> to allow lists of const elements.
* gmmproc: _WRAP_SIGNAL(): Added optional custom_c_callback 
  (Murray Cumming)
* WIN32: Build fixes, mostly merged from the 2.2 branch.
  (Cedric Gustin) 
gtkmm 2.3.3:

- CellLayout: signals take a C++ CellRenderer* instead of a C 
- Widget:
  - signal_drag_data_get and signal_selection_get now use the C++
    SelectionData type.
  - Methods now take C++ Gdk::Region& instead of C GdkRegion*.
- SelectionData: Added set() method overload with fewer parameters. 
- TreeDragSource: The drag_get_data vfunc now uses the C++ 
  SelectionData type.
- TreeIter (TreeModel::iterator): Added operator--().
- Added const version of many ListHandle<> get_*() methods.
