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

GTK+ 2.11.5 released

GTK+ 2.11.5 is now available for download at:

 http://download.gnome.org/sources/gtk+/2.11/

gtk+-2.11.5.tar.bz2   md5sum: 45e8fb0ed2358bffee92ad796d313099
gtk+-2.11.5.tar.gz    md5sum: 5189cd0f5a7eea4122e1e269cb5863a6

This is another development release leading up to GTK+ 2.12.

Notes:

 * This is unstable development release. While it has had
   a bit of testing, there are certainly plenty of bugs
   remaining to be found. This release should not be used
   in production.

 * Installing this version will overwrite your existing
   copy of GTK+ 2.10. If you have problems, you'll need
   to reinstall GTK+ 2.10.

 * GTK+ 2.12 will be source and binary compatible with
   the GTK+ 2.10 series; most API additions have been
   finalized at this point, but there may still be
   incompatibilities between this release and the final 
   2.12 release. In particular, the tooltips api changes
   are not complete yet.

 * Bugs should be reported to http://bugzilla.gnome.org.

GDM2 2.18.3 (stable), the "Minor Difference" Release


AOOH-GAH
--------

If you have no clue what GDM is, refer to the documentation links
at the bottom of this announcement.

The 2.18.3 release is a stable release of the GNOME Display Manager
(GDM) program with the following bug fixes and improvements:

- Fix crashing issue with XDMCP logic.  Fixes bug #436725.  (Brian
   Cameron)

- Translation updates (Priit Laes)

Note:  GDM2 was originally written by Martin K. Petersen <mkp mkp net>.
Much work has been done on GDM2 by George Lebl; and Brian Cameron
now currently shares maintainership duties with the Queen of England.

Note2:  If installing from the tarball do note that make install
overwrites most of the setup files, all except gdm.conf.  It will
however save backups with the .orig extension first.

ANNOUNCE: PyGTK 2.10.5

I am pleased to announce the stable version 2.10.5 of the Python bindings
for GTK+.

The new release is available from ftp.gnome.org and its mirrors
as soon as its synced correctly:

     http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/pygtk/2.10/

Blurb:

GTK+ is a toolkit for developing graphical applications that run on
systems such as Linux, Windows and MacOS X. It provides a comprehensive set
of GUI widgets, can display Unicode bidi text.  It links into the Gnome
Accessibility Framework through the ATK library.

PyGTK provides a convenient wrapper for the GTK+ library for use in
Python programs, and takes care of many of the boring details such as
managing memory and type casting.  When combined with PyORBit and
gnome-python, it can be used to write full featured Gnome applications.

Like the GTK+ library itself PyGTK is licensed under the GNU LGPL, so is
suitable for use in both free software and proprietary applications.  It
is already in use in many applications ranging from small single purpose
scripts up to large full features applications.

What's new since 2.10.4 ?
  - Do access private GtkTooltip member tips_data_list, fixes build
    against Gtk+ 2.11.x (Johan)
  - Allow None to gtk_rc_get_style_by_paths (Mariano Suarez-Alvarez)
  - Fix defs file inconsistencies (Andrew Cowie)

GARNOME 2.18.3
==============

The  "Yes, we did"  release.

Ooops. So I missed to send out the announcement immediately, and it
somehow slipped my mind the next days. Sorry 'bout that. Yes, we did
release it on Wed as scheduled. As always. So go grab it now, because...

We are pleased to announce the release of GARNOME 2.18.3. This release
incorporates the GNOME 2.18.3 Desktop and Developer Platform, fine-tuned
and updated with love by the GARNOME Team.

This is the forth (and last) release of the current stable GNOME branch,
ironing out yet-more bugs, hopefully adding yet-more stability, and
ships with the latest and greatest stable releases. As usual it includes
updates and fixes after the official GNOME freeze, together with a host
of third-party GNOME packages, Bindings and the Mono(tm) Platform.

As usual, you can get the tarball directly from the gnome.org site:
  http://download.gnome.org/sources/garnome/2.18/

If you got any issues with this release, feel free to contact the
GARNOMEies in the #garnome channel on GIMPNet (irc://irc.gnome.org),
where we hang out, or post to the mailing list.

More information is available at our project website:
