    Pango 1.21.0 unstable release

    This is the first development release in yet another exciting cycle in Pango development, leading to Pango-1.22.0, which will be released just in time for GNOME-2.24.
    pango-1.21.0.tar.bz2 md5: f0959c4b9b058ba9e4d13fc9086b7e7d
    pango-1.21.0.tar.gz md5: ade9bf7e089c09e38c58f91fe084835d

    Overview of changes between 1.20.0 and 1.20.1:

    • Update to Unicode Character Databse 5.1.0. This adds new entries to the PangoScript enum. Requires glib >= 2.16.3 for the update Unicode data there, but not bumping the requirement in a stable point release.
    • Try making our OS X stuff compile with latest cairo 1.5.x snapshots that renamed cairo-atsui to cairo-quartz-font, as well as older versions.
    • Minor bug fixes.

    Notes:

    • This is unstable development release. While it has had fairly extensive testing, there are likely bugs remaining to be found. This release should not be used in production.
    • Installing this version will overwrite your existing copy of Pango. If you have problems, you’ll need to reinstall Pango-1.20.x
    • Bugs should be reported to http://bugzilla.gnome.org.

    More info on Pango can be found on pango.org

    GLib is the low-level core library that forms the basis for projects
    such as GTK+ and GNOME. It provides data structure handling for C,
    portability wrappers, and interfaces for such runtime functionality as
    an event loop, threads, dynamic loading, and an object system.

    New Blog for the GTK+ project!

    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.
