Re: About the state of GTK3

gtk2 has no future, the switch to GTK3 probably won't be 100% perfect but IMO its something that needs to be done.

I read the last link and was scared.

PCMANFM the guy behind lxrandr port to QT in 1 day and PCManFM-qt port a(ANd the majority of LXDE)say that programing for GTK3 is a nightmare compared to QT that is pleasant
her drop those words beffore end the porting of pcmanfm-qt

at this point I think that is best hear a words from anyone of the devs because, users can say 1000 words but dev are the only one that have dirty hands and know how this really work

Seems like a lot of devs are claiming that GTK is messy and dirty to code. Sure the UI looks nice but if the code is bad then it will lead to trouble.

Perhaps someone should fork GTK, since GTK is virtually not changing very much with every release.

Re: About the state of GTK3

Reviving this 1 year and many of th thing are fixed a little:
* Gtk3.12 and gtk3.10 themes not break and gtk3-14 will have Adwaita built in for not need use a new theme
* Some thing are dropend but other are added like a gtk-paresite a like tool build int

But the memory remain a little high compared to GTK2, and counting that LXDE and Razon merge in LXQT using QT5, Xfce is the only remained, MATE is migrating to GTK3 for next release.

Man at this point Xfce will e the last migrating to something.

Re: About the state of GTK3

The devs don't want to switch to GTK3 until there is a feature they are interested in or GTK2 gets pulled out of most distros. They don't seem to be very active, they still didn't fix the csd-related bugs in xfwm.
