This is a point release, nothing major. I hope they will decide to update the Windows version from 2.4.3 someday also.

Tor has packaged 2.4.7 already. It is just a single link away from

I do use GTK on Windows and on Linux

I'm with the 2.4.7 for a while. Seems stable enough. One of the best features of the 2.4.x series is the FileChooser :-) I wish Scite used it on Windows.

A bit confused
by Alex on Thu 26th Aug 2004 00:03 UTC

If GTK+ on Windows is at 2.4.4 why are all recent GTK applications like GIMP 2.0.3 and GAIM 0.81 still using 2.4.3. What problems are with 2.4.7?

Compilation error

Any idea about the error below? I had compiled and installed gtk+-2.4.7 w/ no problems in Slackware 10, but now I'm I am having problems..:-(

Pango and GTK+ are two different packages.

by leo on Thu 26th Aug 2004 00:27 UTC

Not necessarily any problems with 2.4.7. Gaim and Gimp probably just haven't bothered to update their installers yet. If it ain't (severely) broke...

Ok... Just compiled a installed "libpng" again and all is fine now..:-)

Strange story link
by swest on Thu 26th Aug 2004 02:29 UTC

It looks as if the link in the story is somewhat incorrect. It seems odd that the link is to gnomefiles and not to the official changelog. Anyway, the official release information is here:

(This is an almost non-existant release)

I think it would be much more useful to most of us if the link was to the official resource, rather than having to go through yet another portal.

I stopped noticing
by Chris on Thu 26th Aug 2004 03:16 UTC

after 2.4.4 came out. I just realized today that 2.4.7 was out and updated to it. I doubt I will make this upgrade for a while, until they make a major speedup I don't care...
I'm very happy with gtk now.

Official Changelog
by victorhooi on Thu 26th Aug 2004 05:12 UTC


hmmm, ok, I'm not actually judging anyone, is Eugenia's site, Eugenia is the Chief editor, " Posted by Eugenia Loli-Queru on 2004-08-25 22:40:23 UTC"

Sure, we have no problem advertising your site (IMHO, I think it's great), but you could include a link to the official changelogs for GTK.

Anyway, nice of Swest to provide it above.

You guys(/gals?) are complaining to Eugenia that she's linking to her GnomeFiles site.. but you know... there's actually _MORE_ information (changelog) on GnomeFiles than there is in the 'official' announcement on the mailing list.


RE: uhm
by Anonymous on Thu 26th Aug 2004 20:06 UTC

Even if GnomeFiles has more info, you announce something, you link to the official changelog or annoucement. No one is stopping Eugina from linking to gnomefiles too, but she really should link to the offical site.

And as a Windows user, I don't care about Gnome. Link to the offical sites please!

It's been happening more and more recently and I don't like it.

Glib regexp
by Archie on Thu 26th Aug 2004 23:48 UTC

Just a thought - are there any plans on adding Perl-style regexp functionality to glib...?? This is badly needed, as (today) it's more or less forcing me to turn to Perl-GTK as soon as I need regexp in a program...

by Anonymous on Fri 27th Aug 2004 00:24 UTC

Look in the gtk-devel mailing lists.
It is definatly something that came udner consideration, and might possibly make it into glib sometime in the future.

Erm.. Gaim 0.82.1 comes with GTK+ 2.4.7 Revision A

Er, the win32 port I mean. Not sure about linux.
