gtkmm provides a C++ interface to GTK+. gtkmm 2.2 wraps GTK+ 2.2
Like GTK+ 2.2, gtkmm 2.2 contains only API addition, without API
or ABI breakage.
(See also Known Problems below)
- No changes, just a rebuilt tarball.
gcc 3.3, now used by debian unstable has a compiler bug that
prevents gtkmm from compiling:
gcc 3.2 does not have this problem.
You will need libsigc++ 1.2, available here: https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=1970
There is ongoing discussion on the mailing list: http://www.gtkmm.org/mailinglist.shtml
and in the #c++ channel on irc.gnome.org/

Gfax is a pop up fax application for Gnome. It supplies the
familiar pop up window when printing to a fax printer. Gfax
currently works with Hylafax. Mgetty and efax support comming.
This release should be far more functional that previous
- Changed the default queue that is displayed on startup to the
- Added ability to delete Hylafax jobs.
- Made "Delete Job" button sensitive only when showing send
- Gfax now attempts to display the proper sensitivity for many
buttons, such as "Delete" and "Edit" in the Phonebooks page.
- The send fax page is now functional and postscript files can be
sent directly from gfax.
- The makefile has been updated to install schema on "make
install", you will no longer have to do a seperate "make
- When creating a new phone book the base directory defaults to
~/.etc/gfax so users will only have to enter a file name and not
the entire path.
- Created a gfaxlpr command for use with apps like OpenOffice. It
seem that reading input in the shell sometimes fails so gfaxlpr
does nothing but read from the standard input. Hopefully this will
work better for printing from applications. See the INSTALL file
for more information about defining printers in OpenOffice.
The following bugs have been fixed:
- create phonebook directory (~/.etc/gfax/) if it doesn't
- create "phonebooks" file if it doesn't exist.
- delete old spool file when finished.

program. You can use it to create, delete and edit scheduled tasks
using a simple point-and-click interface.
This new version allows users to modify crontab files on remote
hosts using SSH.
A Gui installation project used to assist insatallation of
source code files. We work in conjunction with the guinstaller.sourceforge.net/
account, though that account is the main one.

Designed to be easy to use, yet powerful and flexible, GnuCash

filling in dialog properly.

data file is opened. Consolidate the code for manipulating the

numerics, causing all imports to be of value zero.

Without such an API, events can be lost if the event system is
suspended when the event comes in.
- Added gnucash wrappers around gnome-print's rotate, translate,
gsave, and grestore APIs. All to allow sideways printing (by
rotating the image).
- Wrap the new print-session apis.
- Modify the AC_GWRAP_CHECK_GUILE() macro to take an argument,
the g-wrap module directory. Then actually test that the g-wrap
module loads. This should detect systems without slib
- New gwrap check macro
- Deal properly when there are no prices for a commodity.
- Supply a start date (as well as an end date) and don't print
invoices that occur prior to the start date or after the end date.
The aging information ignores the start date, but not the end date.
This means the aging information will always be acurate through the
end date (even if all the invoices and payments are not
- Limit the itemized invoices/payments to the start/end date
range, but print out a "Balance" line if there is a non-zero
balance as of the start date.
