The last development snapshot in the 3.1 cycle. Unless something
major comes up, this release should be considered API-frozen for 3.2.


GTK+ is a multi-platform toolkit for creating graphical user
interfaces. Offering a complete set of widgets, GTK+ is suitable for
projects ranging from small one-off tools to complete application

GTK+ has been designed from the ground up to support a range of
languages, not only C/C++. Using GTK+ from languages such as Perl and
Python (especially in combination with the Glade GUI builder) provides
an effective method of rapid application development.

GTK+ is free software and part of the GNU Project. However, the
licensing terms for GTK+, the GNU LGPL, allow it to be used by all
developers, including those developing proprietary software, without
any license fees or royalties.

Overview of Changes in GTK+ 3.1.90

* GtkAppChooserButton: A new function has been added
that makes it possible to have the button select the
default app (as opposed to the most-recently-used app).

* A lot of feedback on the the tree model refactoring has
been incorporated via new test cases and bug fixes

* The filechooser search has been ported to tracker 0.12
and is using the tracker DBus API directly now.

* The new fontchooser API has been reworked a bit to make
it follow the same pattern we use else where. GtkFontChooser
is now an interface that is implemented by GtkFontChooserButton,
GtkFontChooserDialog and GtkFontChooserWidget (to which the
original GtkFontChooser has been renamed).
