This is a development release leading up to GTK+-2.4. The most
notable change since 2.3.3 is a rework of the user interface
of the new GtkFileChooser based on a design by Seth Nickell
( There are also
hundreds of bug fixes and small improvements.


 * This is unstable development release. There are certainly 
   plenty of bugs remaining to be found. This release should 
   not be used in production.

 * Installing this version will overwrite your existing
   copy of GTK+-2.2. If you have problems, you'll need
   to reinstall GTK+-2.2.4.

 * GTK+-2.4 will be source and binary compatible with
   the GTK+-2.2.x series; however, the new API additions
   in GTK+-2.3.x are not yet finalized, so there are likely
   incompatibities between this release and the final
   2.4 release.

 * Remaining API issues for GTK+-2.4 can be found with following
   bugzilla query:

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
pdevelopers, including those developing proprietary software, without
any license fees or royalties.
