This week in GTK+ – 28

In this last week, the master branch of GTK+ has seen 103 commits, with 5986 lines added and 1896 lines removed.

Planning and status
  • Benjamin Otte is working on a refactoring of the GSK render node API
  • Emmanuele Bassi worked on a 3.x-specific branch that allows GDK to use EGL instead of GLX on X11 platforms
  • The GTK+ road map is available on the wiki.
Notable changes

On the master branch:

  • Benjamin merged the Vulkan renderer for GSK, as comparison point for the GL and Cairo renderers. The Vulkan renderer adds a new optional dependency on a working Vulkan implementation, as well as glslc
  • The Vulkan renderer also resulted in a large refactoring of the GL drawing code inside GDK, though this should not have caused any user-visible changes in the API
  • Benjamin also implemented support for the CSS border-spacing property following the CSS 2.1 specification

On the gtk-3-22 stable branch:

  • Matthias released GTK+ 3.22.5.
Bugs fixed
  • 775651 GdkX11-4.0.gir, GdkWin32-4.0.gir, and Gsk-4.0.gir are generated before Gdk-4.0.gir is ready
