GTK+ 2.17.3 unstable release

This is a development release leading up to GTK+ 2.18.

Overview of Changes from GTK+ 2.17.2

  • GtkFileChooser: Shows the size column by default now
  • GtkStatusIcon: Has a title property, which can be used by ATs when they read status icons
  • GtkInfoBar:
    • The default theme now includes color definitions for infobars
    • The ::use-tooltip-style style property has been removed
  • GtkMountOperation now supports interaction during unmount operations.
  • The client-side windows branch has been merged; GDK now maintains its own window hierarchy client-side, and only uses X windows where unavoidable. Some of the benefits of this change are
    • Reduced flicker
    • The ability to do transformed and animated rendering of widgets
    • Easier embedding of GTK+ widgets e.g. into Clutter scene graphs

    This is a fundamental change to the way GDK works, so watch out for regressions.

12 bugs fixed in this release!
