In light of applications like Wireshark moving from GTK to Qt over better cross-platform support and portability, the GNOME team has finally released their first GTK+3 binaries for Microsoft Windows.

GTK2 had decent support under Windows, but while GTK3 is already several years old, it hadn't seen an official Windows release. Matthias Clasen of Red Hat today announced (via his blog) the first GTK+3 Windows binaries that were done in part by Manuel Bachmann.

While GTK+ 3.10 is the latest stable release, today's Windows release is of GTK+ 3.6.4. More details on the updated GTK+ Windows support can be found via
