This was a follow up on Bob's work to remove depreciated gtk and glib 
functions from our code. This is only done on trunk (as it requires more 
recent gtk and glib versions than we require on 2.4). As it's part of a 
larger effort, I didn't want to backport that single change.

I did some small updates on that page a few days ago, but the release 
schedule for 2.5 is obviously outdated.
