This pops a good question, will redhat wait around for KDE2 before it
releases 6.2? I've checked out alpha versions of KDE 2 and it is real slick.
I personally really can't wait for the final release.  If Redhat decided to
push for early release then IMO we should wait for the KDE2 release.

Yeah I was about to post that, It was the best book on GTK+ from what I
heard.  But Jean, there is plenty of doc's online too at gtk.org, tutorials,
refrence, manual guides and lists of published books.
