GTK+ 3.0.0 Tool-Kit Officially Released!
Phoronix: GTK+ 3.0.0 Tool-Kit Officially Released!
It's been a little more than a week since the final release of GTK2 was made available and at that time GTK+ 3.0 was nearing its official release. Today, after being in development for years, GTK+ 3.0 has been officially released...
Good to have GTK for a worst-case scenario if Nokia was to announces it will kill off MeeGo (and therefore also Qt) tomorrow.
Ubuntu will make use of GTK3 with Ubuntu 10.10 in October.
Qt is independent from MeeGo, and MeeGo is developed by Intel too.

If it isn't, I think It'll take some time (like python3) to be adopted by a large amount of distros (currently, for instance, only a few apps use python3 instead of python2 and most distros still don't have python3 in their official repos).
About the project, I hope this release to be at least as successful as GTK2 was, but personally, I prefer Qt much more.
It's a major version change, so no, it is not. It's meant to be installed alongside gtk2.

While i also would choose qt for any new project, many existing GTK projects could still upgrade (eventually), so there is still a big gain however you look at it.
Does GTK 3.0 support c++? If not, why not?
In my experience, c++ is way better for gui programming than plain c.
