The First GTK+ 3.0 Test Release

Written by Michael Larabel in GNOME on 11 May 2010 at 01:18 PM EDT. Add A Comment
Last week a host of GNOME packages began being checked-in for the first test release of GNOME 3.0 and then we reported on the last GTK+ 2.x release being worked on. Today the first test release of GTK+ 3.0 is now available.

GTK+ 2.90.0 is this initial GTK+3 test release. GTK+ 3.0 can co-exist just fine with a GTK+ 2.x installation on the system for those interested in trying out this tool-kit library.

Details on the GTK+ 2.90.0 release can be found on the gnome-announce list.
