GTK+ 2.15.1 unstable release

This is the first development release leading up to GTK+ 2.16.
35 bugs fixed in this release!

  • GtkFileChooser:
    • Remember the file chooser’s size across invocations
    • Handle uris that are entered in the entry
    • Improve autocompletion, in particular for uris
  • GtkEntry:
    • New property “im-module” for selecting input methods per-widget
    • New icon-related API got renamed for consistency
    • Added properties and setters for icon tooltips
  • GtkTextView:
    • New property “im-module” for selecting input methods per-widget
    • New signal “paste-done” to allow better handling of async pasting
  • GtkScale:
    • New api to add annotated marks: gtk_scale_add_mark.
  • GtkAction:
    • Rework the way actions and proxies interact, to make the interaction less ad hoc, more extensible, and better suited for support in GUI builders like glade. To be used as a proxy, a widget must now implement the GtkActivatable interface, and GtkActivatable implementations are responsible for syncing their appearance with the action and for activating the action. All the widgets that are commonly used as proxies implement GtkActivatable now. This is a big change, and it is not unlikely to break some current users of GtkAction, so feedback about problems caused by this is appreciated.
    • Add a “gicon” property to specify the icon with a GIcon
  • GDK:
    • On X11, GDK now caches cursors to avoid cursor theming overhead
    • New cursor type for blank cursors: GDK_BLANK_CURSOR
  • New deprecations:
    • gtk_scale_Button_get_orientation()
    • gtk_scale_button_set_orientation()
    • gtk_action_connect_proxy()
    • gtk_action_disconnect_proxy()
    • gtk_widget_get_action()
    • gtk_action_block_activate_from()
    • gtk_action_unblock_activate_from()
    • direct access to “gtk-action” object data
  • Changes that are relevant for translators:
    • Navigation and Media stock labels have separate message contexts now
    • The caps lock warning string has been changed
