gtkmm 2.3.6
glibmm 2.3.7

Special notes:

The API is now frozen. Only incredibly important API changes
will be allowed before the final fully-frozen gtkmm 2.4.0 release
on April 5th.

gtkmm and glibmm 2.4:

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.

We recommend the use of jhbuild or garnome for testing in a
separate prefix.

The stable (API/ABI-frozen) gtkmm 2.4.0 will be released soon
after GTK+ 2.4.0.
gtkmm is on the official GNOME Platform Bindings release schedule:
http://www.gnome.org/start/2.5/bindings/

http://www.gtkmm.org

Changes

glibmm 2.3.7:

  • Added configure macros to detect SUN compiler oddities.
  • Various SUN Forte C+ and g++ 3.4 (cvs) build fixes. (Murray
    Cumming)
  • gmmproc: Improved parsing of C docs. (Hagen Moebius)

gtkmm 2.3.6:

  • Build fixes:
    • Partial Sun Forte C++ build fixes. (Murray Cumming, Michael
      v.Szombathely)
    • gcc 3.4 (cvs) build fixes (Murray Cumming, Matthew Tuck)
    • win32 (cygwin) build fixes: (Cedric Gustin)
    • Doxygen is, again, not required when building from tarballs.
      (Murray Cumming)
  • Gtk: RadioButton, RadioMenuItem: Added group_changed signal.
    (Murray Cumming)
  • Documentation: _Lots_ of added, and improved reference
    documentation. (Hagen Moebius)

gnome-games 2.5.9

gnome-games “Zero Gravitas” 2.5.9

This is also a release candidate. Naturally there was a
brown-paper-bag bug discovered the day after the last release. This
has been fixed. Also, the credits have been updated and of course
there have been more translations (does the translation team never
sleep ?!).

You can find it at:

http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/gnome-games/2.5/

gnome-games 2.4.3

gnome-games “Of Course I Still Love You”
2.4.3

This is the 2.4 release that follows the “last ever” 2.4
release. Some more bugs have been fixed and there has been some
more translation work. The next stable release will be 2.6 at which
point maintanence of the 2.4 line will stop.

http://www.gtkmm.org

This is the stable branch. gtkmm 2.3.x is also available, and
can be installed in parallel.

Changes

2.2.10:

  • Build:
    • SUN Forte C++ (see README.SUN): Now builds. This is probably
      the first time since gtkmm 2.0.x. There are still some
      “anachronism” warnings, which someone might like to fix with a
      patch. (Murray Cumming, Michael v.Szombathely)
    • gcc++ 3.4 (cvs): Lots of issues fixed, though you might see an
      internal compiler error. (Murray Cumming, Matthew Tuck)

      Cumming, Roger Leigh)

GGV 2.5.99.1

“Bredazzled”, which is not a spelling error, but a hommage to
GGV’s documentation author, Ms Breda McColgan.

This release, destined to become the 2.6 release candidate 1,
incorporates two patches by a guy (or a gal, who’d know…) who
goes under the name of chenthill, fixing accelerator behaviour and
a few bug fixes by myself. Apart from these, Breda fixed the
documentation once again, and M=C9=99tin, Ales, Funda, Sanlig,
Francisco Javier, Stanislav, Gustavo Maciel Dias and Maxim have
updated their respectful translations.

Available at the no. 1 repository of great PostScript viewers,
http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/ggv/2.5/

Have fun,
