Overview of Changes in GTK+ 1.3.1:
* GTK+ now uses the Pango library for text manipulation. All strings
in GTK+ now are in UTF-8 encoded Unicode. Languages written from
right-to-left, and complex-text languages are now supported.
* The GDK library has been extensively revised to support multiple
windowing systems. The only fully functional backend in 1.3.1
is the X11 backend, however, ports to Win32, Linux-framebuffer,
Nano-X, BeOS, and MacOS exist in various states of completion,
and at least some of these will be finished and integrated in
before the final GTK+-2.0 release.
* 32-bit coordinates are now supported throughout GDK and GTK+
(they are emulated where not supported by the windowing system.)
More too, but that's sorta interesting...
