Libbonoboui 2.2.3

Hi,

Version 2.2.3 of libbonoboui has been released.

  • Availability:

http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/libbonoboui/2.2/

  • What is libbonoboui?

Bonobo is the GNOME component system. Libbonoboui is the user interface part of this, allowing you to create programs that embed graphical controls from other processes.

  • Changes in this release
    • Fixed BonoboSocket so that it will autoactivate controls appropriately; this did not work for in-process controls.
    • Merged changes from the HEAD branch so that toolbar buttons are not focusable.

Enjoy,

Federico
