Display information about an application.
The GtkAboutDialog widget offers a simple way to display information about a program, such as its logo, name, copyright, website and license. It is also possible to give credits to the authors, the documentation team, translators and artists who have worked on the program. An about dialog is typically opened when the user selects the About option from the Help menu. All parts of the dialog are optional.
About dialog often contain links and email addresses. GtkAboutDialog supports this by offering global hooks, which are called when the user clicks on a link or email address, see set_email_hook() and set_url_hook() . Email addresses in the authors, documenters and artists properties are recognized by looking for <user@host>, URLs are recognized by looking for http://url, with url extending to the next space, tab or line break.
