35 The <application>Gdk Pixbuf</application> package is a toolkit for image
36 loading and pixel buffer manipulation. It is used by
37 <application>GTK+ 2</application> and <application>GTK+ 3</application> to
38 load and manipulate images. In the past it was distributed as part of
39 <application>GTK+ 2</application> but it was split off into a separate
40 package in preparation for the change to <application>GTK+ 3</application>.
