Just to clarify, we made a change which doesn't break the ABI. 
Applications won't need to be modified or recompiled.

The following functions now have a gboolean return value rather than

And I made these internal APIs return gboolean and take in a GError:


There are the corresponding changes in the private GtkFileChooserIface.

Functions like gtk_file_chooser_set_current_folder() simply return the
value that the underlying function returns, e.g.
_gtk_file_chooser_set_current_folder_path(), and they don't use a
GError.  In the future we may want to have functions with a _checked
suffix that do export the GError information.

People who use the functions listed above don't need to recompile or
modify their programs.  They may still want to make use of the boolean
return value, however, if they wish to pop up an error dialog or
otherwise fall back to doing other things.
