Implements: Atk.ImplementorIface, Gtk.Buildable

The GtkAboutDialog offers a simple way to display information about
a program like its logo, name, copyright, website and license. It is
also possible to give credits to the authors, documenters, 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
displays these as clickable links. By default, it calls gtk_show_uri()
when a user clicks one. The behaviour can be overridden with the
GtkAboutDialog::activate-link signal.
To make constructing a GtkAboutDialog as convenient as possible, you can
use the function gtk_show_about_dialog() which constructs and shows a dialog
and keeps it around so that it can be shown again.
Note that GTK+ sets a default title of _("About %s")
on the dialog window (where %s is replaced by the name of the
application, but in order to ensure proper translation of the title,
applications should set the title property explicitly when constructing
a GtkAboutDialog, as shown in the following example:

gtk_show_about_dialog (NULL,
"program-name", "ExampleCode",
"logo", example_logo,
"title" _("About ExampleCode"),
