The GNOME Project, i.e. all the people involved with the development of the GNOME desktop environment, is the biggest contributor to GTK+, and the GNOME Core Applications as well as the GNOME Games employ the newest GUI widgets from the cutting-edge version of GTK+ and demonstrates their capabilities. A list of GNOME applications can be found in the GNOME Wiki.
