gtkmm 2.11.6 and glibmm 2.13.9
Posted on: 07/31/2007 09:39 AM

gtkmm 2.11.6 and glibmm 2.13.9 has been released:

gtkmm 2.11 wraps new API in GTK+ 2.11, and will become stable gtkmm 2.12 when GTK+ becomes GTK+ 2.12. It will be API/ABI-compatibile with gtkmm 2.10. 2.8, 2.6 and 2.4. It is a version of the gtkmm-2.4 API.

The API is now frozen. Only minor API changes will be made before the gtkmm 2.12.0 release, with permission from the GNOME release-team.

gtkmm stays in-sync with GTK+ by following the official GNOME release schedule:

Bindings for the rest of the GNOME Platform are also available, and are also API-stable.

Show new API in 2.14.

gtkmm 2.11.6: changes since 2.11.4:
