Jan Bodnar has published a tutorial for people interested in starting out with GTK+, describing the most common widgets you need to know when you write an application.
You can also find the link in the tutorials section on the GTK+ website together with other GTK+ tutorials.
Jan has also published a tutorial on Cairo that’s worth checking out.
Since updating gtk.org I have had a number of comments and one in particular asked for an RSS they could follow with information and news about GTK+. So, this blog has been set up to do just that.
If there is anyone here that wishes to be added to be able to blog about new and cool things in GTK+, let me know, and I will add you. So far it is just me and soon to be andreas.
