We are pleased to announce release 2.8.5 of Gtk#.  Packages are
available for supported platforms at:


Source tarball has been uploaded to ftp.gnome.org.

This is a bugfix release with limited new API additions.  Users of the
impending mono 1.9 release should upgrade their 2.8 installs to this
release to avoid a potential problem in glade-sharp resulting from
recent System.Reflection changes.

What is Gtk#:
Gtk# is a set of .Net/mono language bindings to assorted Gtk+ and GNOME
libraries.  Supported libraries include pango, atk, gtk+, libglade,
libgnome, libgnomeui, libgnomecanvas, libgnomeprint, libgnomeprintui,
libpanelapplet, librsvg, libvte, libgtkhtml, and gconf.

What's new in version 2.8.5:
- Performance, memory management, and object finalization improvements.
- GLib.ExceptionManager to support exception handling in signal
- Numerous bugfixes

Thanks to the contributors to this release: Wade Berrier, Eskil Bylund,
Sebastian Dröge, Michael Hutchinson, Lluis Sanchez Gaul, and myself.
