A new development release of GNOME's GTK+ tool-kit is out for testing today.

The GTK+ 3.17.6 update, the latest in a string of releases leading up to GNOME 3.18 and GTK+ 3.18 in September, has mostly a random smothering of fixes/improvements.

GTK+ 3.17.6 has fixes for OS X like correcting window maximization, GTK+ on X11 restores support for copy-paste across multiple screens, Wayland display and monitor information is available now from the GtkInspector, more gtk-demos, CSS improvements, and a variety of other changes.

The full listing of GTK+ 3.17.6 changes can be found via the NEWS file. The GNOME 3.17/3.18 schedule puts the next development release as the 3.17.90 Beta due out on 19 August while coming up this weekend is the GUADEC conference. GNOME 3.18.0 should be formally released on 23 September.
