This week in GTK+ – 25

In this last week, the master branch of GTK+ has seen 167 commits, with 8048 lines added and 6858 lines removed.

Planning and status
Notable changes

On the master branch:

  • The default value of the GtkFileChooser:local-only property is now FALSE, which means that file selections dialogs will automatically show non-local resources.
  • Benjamin Otte introduced the GtkSnapshot API, which works as a GskRenderNode builder for widgets, and aims to replace the immediate mode gtk_render_* family of functions.
  • Benjamin also changed the GtkDrawingArea API, which now works using an explicit callback function, instead of a the generic GtkWidget::draw signal.
  • Finally, Benjamin has implemented support for 3D CSS transformations in GTK+.
  • The GDK API to read back the contents of a GdkWindow into a GdkPixbuf have been removed, as their behavior and result are platform-dependent.
  • Matthias Clasen updated the GTK+ 3.x → 4.x porting guide, and the API reference, with the newest API additions.
  • Simon Steinbeiss updated the CSS styling for GtkProgressbar to add the empty and full classes when the progress is set to 0.0 or 1.0, respectively.
