This application requires GTK+ version 2.2.x.

What's New in This Release:
Some changes in putenv() caused ffrecord to fail.
Now ffrecord uses setenv() instead.
Desktop stay-on-top works again in Gnome 2.10, but it has a sid effect: it cannot accept keyboard input.
There is a gcc 4.x compilation fix.
