* NEWS: Updates
2006-04-30 Matthias Clasen <mclasen@localhost.localdomain>
* gtk/gtktreemodel.c (gtk_tree_model_base_init): Document
Overview of Changes from GTK+ 2.8.x to 2.9.0
* 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
* GtkPrintOperation, cross-platform printing support
* A framework for rich text copy and paste and DND
* GtkCellRendererAccel, a cell renderer for key combinations
* GtkCellRendererSpin, a cell renderer which edits numeric values
using a spin button
* GtkAction works with named icons in addition to stock icons
* GtkNotebook supports DND, allowing to reorder tabs, move tabs
between notebooks and drop tabs on the desktop to open a new window
* GtkTreeView changes:
- Enhanced customizability (e.g. grouping) with the
show-expanders and level-indentation properties
- Allow to embed the search popup
- Better search popup positioning
* Reworked hex Unicode input now requires Ctrl-Shift-U
* Animations can now be globally controlled by settings
* The gtk-touchscreen-mode setting controls a number of changes
that make GTK+ work better on touchscreens
* Password entries can optionally show the last entered character
for a short while, controlled by the password-hint-timeout setting
* GTK+ can now consult an additional fallback icon theme before
falling back to hicolor
* Improved themability:
- GTK+ supports symbolic colors, which can be set system-wide
using a setting, and can be modified and used in rc files
and theme engines
- GTK+ sets window type hints on override-redirect windows to
help compositing managers apply proper bling
- Paths in rc files can now refer to all subclasses of a class
- GtkRange steppers will appear insensitive when the slider
is at the end; applications which need to handle this case
(e.g. to extend the range) can opt out of this.
- GtkRange::activate-slider style property allows themes
to draw sliders differently while they are being dragged
- GtkNotebook::tab-overlap and GtkNotebook::curvature style
properties allow more flexible notebook theming
- The spacing of buttons around children can be themed with
the GtkButton::inner-border style property. Apps can override
this per-widget using the corresponding inner-border property
- GtkMenu has aquired a horizontal-padding style property
- There are style properties for the color of hyperlinks,
GtkWidget::link-color and GtkWidget::visited-link-color
- GtkTreeview row hinting now takes the selection into account
- Scrolling menus can be forced to always display both arrows,
using the GtkMenu::double-arrows style property
- Separators can be themed using the wide-separators, separator-width
and separator-height style properties
- GtkTreeView allows more flexible theming with the row-ending-details
- The pixbuf theme engines supports customized drawing of expanders
and resize grips
* GDK changes:
- OS X backend
- DirectFB backend
- Closing displays works
- gdk_screen_is_composited to check for running compositing manager
- Support for Super, Hyper and Meta modifiers
* gdk-pixbuf changes:
- Supports saving tiff
- Supports loading 16-bit pnm
- Doesn't load entire gif animation to get first frame
* Bug fixes
- Too many to list them here
Overview of Changes from GTK+ 2.8.1 to GTK+ 2.8.2
