ANNOUNCE: gtkmm 2.1.3 - READ CHANGES if you installed previous gtkmm 2.1.x versions.

*** gtkmm 2.2

gtkmm provides a C++ interface to GTK+. gtkmm 2.2 wraps GTK+ 2.2

We expect no major changes before gtkmm 2.2.0. Please consider this a release 
candidate. I know I said that last time.

Like GTK+ 2.2, gtkmm 2.2 contains only API addition, without API or ABI
breakage. We might do bug-fixing work on gtkmm 2.0, but most work will
happen on HEAD, because a stable GTK+ 2.2.0 has already been released.

Contrary to the gtkmm 2.0.2 announcement, gtkmm 2.0.2 will not build
with GTK+ 2.1.x, due to minor API breakage in GTK+. 

*** Changes


* Changed library binary version so libtool knows that
  2.2 is API compatible with 2.0. We did this wrong in the past
  so people MUST do this:

    rm <prefix>/lib/lib{glib,pango,atk,gdk,gtk}mm-[12][345]*

  where <prefix> is something like /usr/local or /opt/gnome2
  This will remove previous bad versions of 2.1.x.
* atkmm: Lots of new interfaces wrapped. (Daniel Elstner).
* Gtk::TextView:: Fixed bytes/length confusion in TextBuffer's 
  insert_text callback. (Daniel Elstner)
