gtkmm provides a C++ interface to GTK+. gtkmm 2.2 wraps GTK+ 2.2
This is the stable branch. gtkmm 2.3.x is also available, and
can be installed in parallel.
- gtkmm 2.2.10 had an incorrect configure-time test, that
mistakenly disabled some template code for gcc, used to convert
from intermediate C++ containers to STL containers. For instance,
this broke the gnome-vfsmm build.
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/

database-oriented applications, and actually allow access to
PostgreSQL, MySQL, Oracle, Sybase, SQLite, FireBird/Interbase, IBM
DB2, mSQL and MS SQL server, as well as MS Access and xBase files
and ODBC data sources.

GNOME Office application suite, providing database access for many
features in both Gnumeric and Abiword.
This is another development release in the road to 1.2, which
will be the next stable release, and which shows a preview of the

for production use, but by people wanting to experiment with the
new features and to help on the development.
