This week in GTK+ – 35

In this last week, the master branch of GTK+ has seen 33 commits, with 5011 lines added and 8140 lines removed.

Planning and status
  • The GTK+ road map is available on the wiki
  • Patrick Griffis is experimenting with a feature branch to deprecate and remove gtk_dialog_run(); see this comment on the pitfalls of nested main loops with regards to UI threads, IPC threads, and I/O threads
  • Matthias Clasen is experimenting with re-using the fuzzy search in libdazzle in the icon browser
Notable changes

On the master branch:

  • Matthias Clasen added the ability to copy the icon name to the clipboard to the icon browser utility
  • Matthias also made the GtkCenterBox widget public; this widget replaces the equivalent functionality of GtkBox to have a centered widget
  • Olivier Fourdan fixed various bugs in the Wayland backend, and backported the fixes to the gtk-3-22 stable branch
  • Chun-wei Fan pushed various fixes to ensure that GTK+ keeps building with MSVC on Windows
  • Emmanuele Bassi modified the Meson build to ensure that all the SASS-based themes are regenerated when building GTK+, if sassc is installed; Lapo Calamandrei removed the Gem file for Ruby/Sass, and thus GTK+ switched to sassc as the preferred SASS compiler
Bugs fixed
  • 770513 – MainToolbar in full-screen mode has rounded corners, which show video pixel bleed-thru underneath it
  • 783347 – gtkfilechoosernativewin32: Fix support for non-ASCII paths
  • 781945 – SIGSEGV dragging window on Wayland when toplevel window set_transient_for is set to another toplevel
  • 782283 – Wayland: Crash when dismissing a menu when a tooltip is visible
  • 781285 – Key repeat cancel under Wayland should depend on which key is repeating
  • 783397 – Remove unused code in gtktextdisplay.c

  1. “ability to copy the icon name to the clipboard to the icon browser utility” about time, this was seriously restricting the usefulness of the utility.

    Why didn’t I contribute this myself? Good question, don’t really have a good answer other than I don’t have time to dig into the utilities workings
