GTK+ 2.90.7 Released, Drops DirectFB Support

While GNOME 3.0 has been delayed to next March, the development releases towards version 3.0 of the GTK+ tool-kit continues in a steadfast manner. After the last GTK+ 3.0 snapshot a few weeks back that ported most of the GTK+ drawing to use Cairo, GTK+ 2.90.7 has been released.

GTK+ 2.90.7 drops a number of deprecated APIs, introduces a GtkWrapBox container, GTK+ now uses standard icon names when looking up stock icons, button boxes are now semi-homogeneous, and the DirectFB back-end to GTK+ has been dropped. The DirectFB back-end has been dropped since it's been broken for at least a number of weeks now and there's been no interested stakeholders interested in repairing it since the few niche cases that previously used GTK+ with DirectFB now seem to have moved to just using X11.

The release notes and complete change-log for GTK+ 2.90.7 is available from the GNOME announce list.
