This release represents the biggest release of GTK in ages. A lot of cruft has been removed and a lot of things have been bought into GTK fron the egg* libs including
* GtkStatusIcon, a cross-platform "tray icon" API
* GtkAssistant, a widget for creating multi-step wizards
* GtkLinkButton, a widget that displays a clickable hyperlink
* GtkRecentChooser, widgets to display and select recently used files
* and more.

There has also been at least 2 new large features;
* GtkPrintOperation (cross platform print)
* Async file chooser backend

I dont want to sound like a salesman, but there is going to be some seriously cool stuff in the 2.10 release!
