bootstrap-2.4 corresponds to GTK+ 2.4 bindings.  bootstrap-2.6
corresponds to GTK+ 2.6 bindings.  bootstratp-2.8 corresponds to GTK+
2.8 bindings.

So which one you choose depends on which version of GTK+ you want to

Also keep in mind that binaries have only been shipped for Gtk# 2.4;
Gtk# 2.6 was a source-only release, and Gtk# 2.8 hasn't been finalized

So unless you really need GTK+ >= 2.6 functionality (and are willing to
bundle Gtk# 2.6 with your app), you should probably stick to
