I have prepared a tarball for people wanting a recent version of Gtk# to
go with the new mono release.

Source is available at:

About this pre-release:

* This is a pre-release. It has not been tested on Windows, or any
other platform than Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 x86. Mike was not consulted
regarding this pre-release, nor was he available at the time. This
is not an official release; system packagers should not release
binary packages for it.

* I have confirmed that Gtk# works with Mono 0.17, but as that version
shipped with finalizers disabled, large Gtk# applications running under
Mono 0.17 will leak memory like a sieve.=20

* The samples appear to work. I cannot confirm that CVS mphoto,
or any other Gtk# application, works with this release, because
mphoto crashes for me right now.

Preliminary release notes

About Gtk#:=20
Gtk# is a C# language binding for the Gtk+ Graphical User Interface
toolkit. The binding is fairly complete, but it is still
largely unproven and not recommended for production work.=20
