+Known issues with 2.22.4
+========================
+
+- The bundled svg_pixbuf_loader does not seem to be compatible with the new,
+ split gdk-pixbuf-2.22.0. Other svg functionality works fine.
+- In theory, Windows 2000 should be supported, but:
+
+ - in practice the gtk+ binaries on ftp.gnome.org are affected by
+ libgio-2.0-0.dll needing the freeaddrinfo() function defined in wspiapi.h (ws2_32.dll)
+ refer to the following for more info:
+
+ - https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=610502#c6
+ - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms737931%28v=vs.85%29.aspx
+
+ - The need for gdiplus.dll:
+
+ - Download the GDI+ Platform SDK redistributable from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=6a63ab9c-df12-4d41-933c-be590feaa05a&displaylang=en
+ - Execute the downloaded WindowsXP-KB975337-x86-ENU.exe and it will ask to
+ - extract some files. Copy the extracted asms\10\msft\windows\gdiplus\gdiplus.dll
+ - file to C:\Python2X\Lib\site-packages\gtk-2.0\runtime\bin
