An Interlude

today I spent the morning at the Developer Conference: Matthias had an interesting talk on the changes that happened in GTK+ 3.x over the past year, as well as his experience in implementing the new GtkColorChooser after the design proposals.

then it was multi-touch time. after a recap of what happens on different platforms and different toolkits, we discussed and reviewed the API proposed and implemented by Carlos Garnacho; after a quick break for a late lunch at 4pm, the discussion resumed — it’s actually still going on to this very moment: Chase, Benjamin, and Matthias are now discussing about event controllers and gesture recognisers — and how to design event handling in the Brave New World® of touch events and gestures.
