GTK+ 2.23.90 released

GTK+ 2.23.90 is now available for download at:ftp://ftp.gtk.org/pub/gtk/2.23/http://download.gnome.org/sources/gtk+/2.23/8d99bb78555b7d4a9c6d42824895fb4d12ddb9f332bc0e46b2db71baaa12117a gtk

This is a beta release for what will become 2.24.


* GTK+ 2.24 is planned to be the last stable GTK+ 2.x release,
to be released in parallel with GTK+ 3. It will not receive
major feature work beyond API additions that are required
to facilitate porting to GTK+ 3.

* Installing this version will overwrite your existing
copy of GTK+ 2.22. If you have problems, you'll need
to reinstall GTK+ 2.22.

* GTK+ 2.24 will be source and binary compatible with
the GTK+ 2.22 series; however, the new API additions
are not yet finalized, so there may be incompatibilities
between this release and the final 2.24 release.

* Bugs should be reported tohttp://bugzilla.gnome.org.

What is GTK+

GTK+ is a multi-platform toolkit for creating graphical user
interfaces. Offering a complete set of widgets, GTK+ is suitable for
projects ranging from small one-off tools to complete application

GTK+ has been designed from the ground up to support a range of
languages, not only C/C++. Using GTK+ from languages such as Perl and
Python (especially in combination with the Glade GUI builder) provides
an effective method of rapid application development.

GTK+ is free software and part of the GNU Project. However, the
licensing terms for GTK+, the GNU LGPL, allow it to be used by all
developers, including those developing proprietary software, without
any license fees or royalties.
