This Week in GTK+ – 6

In this last week, GTK+ has seen 20 commits, with 1852 lines added and 1234 lines removed.

Planning and Status
  • With the GTK+ hackfest going on for most of the week, not much happened in the Git repository.
  • Each day of the hackfest has its own notes on the wiki: 1, 2, 3, 4.
  • The roadmap has been cleaned up and updated.
Notable changes
  • Ray Strode worked on the GDK Wayland backend to ensure that it can be built and used with older Linux kernels without memfd support.
  • Philip Chimento added the ability for GtkStyleContext hierarchies to include multiple contexts; this is the first step in allowing style contexts to cascade properly within childred of a widget.
Bugs fixed
  • Bug 766341 Do not rely on memfd as it requires a fairly recent kernel
  • Bug 767766 CUPS 2.X detected incorrectly by configure
  • Bug 767795 Warning when the “accelerator” property of GtkShortcutsShortcut is set to “less”
  • Bug 751409 gtk_style_context_add_provider() does not propagate to children
  • Bug 767705 GtkActionHelper: Change a message to a warning
  • Bug 767468 Popover over a treeview cellrenderer is hidden immediately after being shown
