GNOME 3.0 / GTK+ 3.0 was released just over one month ago, but already work is well under-way into developing GNOME 3.2 and with that the GTK+ 3.2 update for release later on in the year. GTK+ 3.1.2 was released in mid-April, but GTK+ 3.1.4 was released yesterday as the second development snapshot. This tool-kit update does provide more features.

Key changes in GTK+ 3.1.4 include a major visual refresh to the GtkAssistant widget, RGBA color support in GtkTextView, GtkFileChooser (finally) remembers the last opened directory, there's a GtkLockButton widget for dealing with PolicyKit and other permissions, size allocation changes, and many bug-fixes. Translation updates are also aplenty too.

That's not all either as there are also many changes to the GDK Broadway back-end too, which was merged for GTK+ 3.2. The Broadway back-end is what allows GTK applications to run in HTML5 web-browsers and has been show off to do some cool things.

With GTK+ 3.1.4, the GDK Broadway HTML5 back-end has improved key event handling, support for resize grips, make window close buttons function, and streams data over web-socket.

The GTK+ 3.1.4 release announcement can be found on the GNOME mailing list.

The GNOME 3.2 release is currently set for the 28th of September.
