This week in GTK+ – 26

In this last week, the master branch of GTK+ has seen 40 commits, with 1551 lines added and 1998 lines removed.

Planning and status
  • Matthias Clasen released the first GTK+ 3.89 development snapshot
  • The GTK+ road map is available on the wiki.
Notable changes

On the master branch:

  • Andrew Chadwick landed a series of fixes for graphic tablets support on Windows
  • Benjamin Otte removed the gtk_cairo_should_draw_window() utility function; the function was introduced for compatibility in the 3.x API, but now it’s not necessary any more
  • Benjamin also removed gdk_window_process_updates() and gdk_window_process_all_updates(); GDK has long since been switched to a frame clock; additionally, only top level GdkWindow can be used as a rendering surface
  • Lapo Calamandrei updated the High Contrast and Adwaita theme with the recent round of CSS improvements for progress bars and gradients
Bugs fixed
  • 774114 Window shadows are repainted even if only the contents of the window change
  • 774695 GtkProgressbar needs full and empty classes
  • 774265 No tilt for wintab devices
  • 774699 [wintab, potential segfault]: list iteration regression causes odd-indexed devices to be ignored during lookup & e.g. present no pressure
  • 775038 Build: Add wayland to GSKs dependencies
  • 774917 [wayland] child subsurfaces need to be placed relative to their parent
  • 774893 Application font sizes scaling gets clamped to 1.00 when starting GtkInspector
  • 774939 GtkLabelAccessible: Initialize link before setting parent
  • 774760 inspector: ensure controller is a GtkGesture
  • 774686 GtkMenu does not unref all GtkCheckMenuItem it creates
  • 774743 GtkNotebook does not unref all GtkBuiltinIcon it creates
  • 774790 GtkTextHandle does not unref all GtkAdjustment it references
