gtk-engines provides a central location for commonly used GTK+ engines. It currently supplies several engines and default themes for those which have one.
Many thanks to Andrew Johnson, Benjamin Berg and Benjamin Otte for their contributions to this release.
This will probably be the last release before 2.8.0, and we have now achieved our goal of converting all the engines distributed in gtk-engines to use the cairo graphics library, including:
Crux, Clearlooks, HighContrast, Industrial, Mist, ThinIce, Redmond and Glide (a temporary cairo replacement for Smooth for the Glider theme)
Besides this goal, there have also been numerous improvements to the engines in this release cycle, including:
* the creation of a shared library of common functions, macros and
* vigorous testing to ensure the stability of all the engines
* and many, many visual improvements
However, there are still likely to be a few bugs left, so please do file any issues and problems you have in bugzilla
