Holly Widgets for GTK#

This item in japanese

GTK# is a collection of bindings for the GTK+ toolkit within Gnome.  Using GTK# developers can build graphical interfaces using Mono with the Stetic designer of MonoDevelop.  This past week Daniel announced code complete on the Mono-GTK# mailing list:

I'm proud to present you with my last two weeks work - a gtk-sharp custom control library compatible 100% with monodevelop/stetic.

Included in the first release of Holly Widgets are the following controls:
