Sorry about the stupid question but why would I use Gtk# 2.8.5 when there is Gtk# 2.10.3??? Is there any other reason than that I cannot reference and build apps against older versions of Gtk# if I don't have them installed (policies didn't work for me with VS 2005)

Subject: [Mono-dev] Announcing Gtk# release 2.10.3 and Gnome# release 2.16.1

We are pleased to announce version 2.10.3 of Gtk# and version 2.16.1 of
Gnome# .  Packages are available for supported platforms at:


Source tarballs have been uploaded to ftp.gnome.org.

I'm also happy to announce a coordinated release of Gtk# for the MS
runtime produced by the folks at Medsphere.  It is available for
download at:


This is a bugfix release with limited new API additions.  Users of the
impending mono 1.9 release should upgrade their 2.10/2.16 installs to
this release to avoid a potential problem in glade-sharp resulting from
recent System.Reflection changes.

What is Gtk#:
Gtk# and Gnome# are a set of .Net/mono language bindings to assorted Gtk
+ and GNOME libraries.  Supported libraries include pango, atk, gtk+,
libglade, libgnome, libgnomeui, libgnomecanvas, libgnomeprint,
libgnomeprintui, libpanelapplet, librsvg, libvte, libgtkhtml, and gconf.

What's new in version 2.10.3:
- Performance, memory management, and object finalization improvements.
- GLib.ExceptionManager to support exception handling in signal
- GLib.IOChannel and GLib.Spawn classes for process spawning.
- Numerous bugfixes

Thanks to the contributors to this release: Wade Berrier, Eskil Bylund,
Sebastian Dröge, Michael Hutchinson, Peter Johanson, Lluis Sanchez Gaul,
and myself.

Discussion of Gtk# occurs on gtk-sharp-list at lists.ximian.com and defects
can be reported to bugzilla.novell.com, module gtk#.
