Just days after the release of GNOME 2.32, focusing on GNOME 3.0 development for next March has now regained center stage. It was in August that GTK+ began using more of Cairo for its tool-kit drawing and then dropped DirectFB support, but with today's release of GTK+ 2.91.0 (the latest GTK+ 3.0 snapshot) the rendering clean-up of GNOME's tool-kit is complete.

As a result of this rendering clean-up to GTK+, parts of the API has changed with GtkStyle functions being changed to use Cairo arguments, eliminating the GdkPixmap, and many other changes.

All of the latest changes to GTK+ 3.0 can be found in this release announcement.
