GTK+ 3.0, GNOME Shell, Mutter Near Final

Filed under
Software

In preparation for the GNOME 2.91.6 release tomorrow, many GNOME modules are being checked in, including new versions of the GTK+ 3.0 tool-kit, the GNOME Shell, and the Mutter window manager.

While GTK+ 2.24 is now final, version 3.0 is still being worked on but is almost done. GTK+ 2.99.3 is the new release and it also comes with one last ABI break before going gold. GTK+ 3.0 is expected to be declared stable next week.

This near-final release brings many introspection annotation improvements, visual improvements to the file chooser and application chooser widgets, restored support for key themes, and many other last-minute technical changes.
