I’d like to share some exciting new about GTK+ development.
In short: GTK+ master branch: Development towards 3.0 !! 🙂
Mathias Clasen has been merged the gtk-2-90 branch. This branch has been used to prepare a lot of the deprecation removal, etc, for 3.0.
So we have now:
- gtk-2-20: the usual stable branch
- gtk-2-22: special branch that will only pick up remaining accessors that are needed to make GTK+ 2.x users build with GSEAL and get them ready to work with 3.x (no new features)
- master: Development towards GTK+ 3.0 with new features 🙂
More information of the actual status of the GTK+ branches in this mail on gtk-devel-list.
Also, I’m very exciting to announce that I’ve been accepted in this year GSoC (you can see my application here), so I can help GTK+ devels in the GTK+3 transition tasks.
Thanks to the GNOME people for accept my application!
Also, thanks to GTK+ devels for their help (and their patience sometimes ;)), specially to Carlos Garnacho to be my mentor 😉
The fun begins!

U are doing a great job.
You forgot the 2.16 branch which is what is recommended for win32.
Weel, the idea is work on fixing the current branches, help is always welcomed 😉
For a list of bugs in the win32 backend take a look here (in special the csw (client-side-window) bugs): http://live.gnome.org/GTK+/Win32
Thanks as always. You’re doing an awesome job.
