gtkmm 2.2

  • Fixed "inacccessible base" build errors with gcc 3.3.2. (Bradley Bell)
  • win32: Re-enabled our wrappers for parts of the GTK+ API that are now properly exported on Windows by GTK+. See README.win32 for more details. (Cedric Gustin)
  • Documentation:

      • Mentioned Treeviews with popup menus, with example. (Murray Cumming)

    • Distribute doxygen tags for use by the documentation of related projects. (Bradley Bell)
    • Build and install a devhelp file for the reference docs. This doesn't work yet, but hopefully it's easy to fix. (
