About Gtk#: 
Gtk# is a .Net language binding for the Gtk+ Graphical User Interface
toolkit and several GNOME platform libraries. The GNOME 2.2 platform is
currently targeted.  The binding is fairly complete, but it is still
largely unproven and API unstable, and therefore not recommended for
production work. 

Changes since 0.11:
* New parser frontend script (gapi-parser) that uses an XML input file
to specify options for better extensibility. (MK)
* Code Generator now accepts outdir, customdir, and assembly-name
arguments to allow more control over the generation process and
directory structure.
* Gtk.HTML now lives in its own gtkhtml-sharp assembly, allowing us to
make it depend on gnome-sharp.dll and activate the printing api.
* Restructured build to distribute generation into the assembly dirs,
making for more compact rebuilds. (Martin, MK)
* New XPath-based metadata alteration engine (gapi-fixup.exe) to replace
the perl module. (MK)
* Ported all the old metadata rules to new format. (MK, Martin)
* Apply metadata during generation step.  It is no longer necessary to
have the raw source around to make a metadata change to the API XML
files. (MK)
* More API Corrections, Customizations, and glue: (Rachel, Martin,
Moritz Balz, Daniel Kornhauser, MK)
* a ton of Bugfixes (MK, Martin, Artem Popov, Malte, John Luke, Gonzalo)
* Doc Updates (John Luke, Hector E. Gomez Morales, Martin Willemoes
