GTK+ 2.17.4 unstable release

This is a development release leading up to GTK+ 2.18.

Overview of Changes from GTK+ 2.17.3

  • GtkEntry now has model-view separation, with GtkEntryBuffer. One intended use case for this is to support ‘secure memory’ for password entries.
  • The print dialog can now optionally include the page setup controls, avoiding the need for a separate page setup dialog in many applications.
  • Coloring of visited links in GtkLabel can now be turned off, with the ::track-visited-links property.
  • Support for clipmasks in gdk_draw_pixbuf now works, this will introduce visual changes in code that uses clipmasks when drawing pixbufs. However, since this never worked that is unlikely to happen. Old code using gdk_pixbuf_render_threshold_alpha masks when rendering pixbufs will now produce truncated results at the edges.
  • A number of regressions from the client-side window merge have been fixed.

4 bugs fixed in this release!

GTK+ 2.17.3 unstable release

This is a development release leading up to GTK+ 2.18.

Overview of Changes from GTK+ 2.17.2

  • GtkFileChooser: Shows the size column by default now
  • GtkStatusIcon: Has a title property, which can be used by ATs when they read status icons
  • GtkInfoBar:
    • The default theme now includes color definitions for infobars
    • The ::use-tooltip-style style property has been removed
  • GtkMountOperation now supports interaction during unmount operations.
  • The client-side windows branch has been merged; GDK now maintains its own window hierarchy client-side, and only uses X windows where unavoidable. Some of the benefits of this change are
    • Reduced flicker
    • The ability to do transformed and animated rendering of widgets
    • Easier embedding of GTK+ widgets e.g. into Clutter scene graphs

    This is a fundamental change to the way GDK works, so watch out for regressions.

12 bugs fixed in this release!

    • GIO:

    • Vfs implementations can support storing of per-file metadata.
    • GCancellable can now be subclassed.
