Barring accidents or excessive incompetence this should be the
last release for the 2.4 series of gnome-games. After this release
people seeking stable updates to gnome-games should look to the
upcoming 2.6 series. Be warned that while this release should still
compile and run in a GNOME 2.2 environment the 2.6 release of
gnome-games will require GNOME 2.6.
The bugs where both blackjack and gnome-stones crashed on
start-up have now been fixed. There have also been translation
NOTE: This is probably your last chance to comment on the API
before the API freeze.
gtkmm provides a C++ interface to GTK+. The 2.3.x tarballs are
the unstable development series that will become the stable gtkmm
2.4. gtkmm 2.3/2.4 will wrap any additional API in GTK+ 2.4. glibmm
is now a separate module, for use in non-GUI software.
gtkmm 2.3/2.4 installs in parallel with gtkmm 2.2, so you can
install this unstable library without the risk of breaking existing
applications. This allows us to break ABI and API, though we will
try not to break API unless it is absolutely necessary.
But do be aware that the underlying unstable GTK+ 2.3 does not
install in parallel with GTK+ 2.2, so be careful if you apply it in
your normal prefix.
We recommend the use of jhbuild or garnome for testing in a
properties: Make read-only properties have const accessors, and
add a second read-only const accessor for normal properties. Wrap
construct-only properties as read-only, instead of ignoring
vfuncs: Really generate const vfuncs when requested. Put the
method declaration directly into the .h file, so that the doxygen
documentation can be next to it.
Remove mergecdocs configure option - always merge the C docs,
to avoid any risk of uploading or releasing empty documentation.
Just delete the *_docs.xml files to make building from cvs
Install a GLIBMM_CHECK_PERL() macro, for use by gtkmm and other
*mm projects, to get the perl path needed by doxygen.
Install beautify_docs.pl so it can be reused in gtkmm and other
*mm projects, instead of having lots of copies.
Glib::ObjectBase: The default constructor, never before used,
now generates a custom GType, for use when creating new
implementations of Glib::Interfaces - for instance, see the new
custom tree model example in gtkmm.
