copy of GTK+. If you have problems, you'll need to
reinstall GTK+ 2.14.

the GTK+ 2.14 series. The API additions in GTK+ 2.15
are finalized at this point, only minor API changes

What is GTK+
GTK+ is a multi-platform toolkit for creating graphical user
interfaces. Offering a complete set of widgets, GTK+ is suitable for
projects ranging from small one-off tools to complete application
GTK+ has been designed from the ground up to support a range of
languages, not only C/C++. Using GTK+ from languages such as Perl and
Python (especially in combination with the Glade GUI builder) provides
an effective method of rapid application development.
GTK+ is free software and part of the GNU Project. However, the
licensing terms for GTK+, the GNU LGPL, allow it to be used by all
developers, including those developing proprietary software, without
any license fees or royalties.

Overview of Changes from GTK+ 2.15.2 to 2.15.3

complaint about the way GTK+ handles multiple layouts. GTK+ now only uses

the current group. Feedback on this change is appreciated.
