New GTK+3 is Released

Filed under

Today GTK+3 was officially released. After two years of development, the GIMP toolkit for developing graphical interface elements was finally unveiled. GTK is used to develop popular window managers and environments like GNOME, Xfce, and LXDE. Many individual programs use GTK for their interface development as well, such as The GIMP, Evolution, Pidgin, Inkscape, and Abiword. This release means more functionality for your favorite software, and it just may mean better looks too.

GTK+3 brings improvements such as the use of Cairo throughout instead of the older X11 wrapper. Device handling has been upgraded with XI2 support.
