  "gtkmm -- the C++ interface to GTK+"
  Presented by: R. Douglas Barbieri

    GTK+ ("The GIMP Toolkit") is a popular open source multi-platform
    toolkit for creating graphical user interfaces.  It contains common
    and complex widgets, such as file selection and color selection widgets.

    GTK+ was initially developed as a widget set for The GIMP
    (GNU Image Manipulation Program).  It has grown extensively since then,
    and is today used by a large number of applications, and is the
    toolkit used by the GNOME desktop project.

    gtkmm ("GTK minus minus") is the official C++ interface for the
    popular open source GUI library GTK+ ("The GIMP Toolkit").

    Highlights of gtkmm include: typesafe callbacks, widgets extensible via
    inheritance, and a comprehensive set of widgets.  You can create user
    interfaces either in code or with the Glade designer, using libglademm.
