“ have been stories recently about fleeing GTK apps + due to portability problems. Therefore, I am very happy to announce that we now officially versions of GTK + 3 for Windows “. So one of the developers announced GNOME updated packages launching GTK + 3 for Windows.
And is that GTK + 3 while welcomed to Windows, actually. Specifically, with the release of GTK + 3.4.0 / GNOME 3.4.0, in March 2012. The problem, apparently, is that no one took care of its maintenance so far. Interested parties have all the information and downloads on the project page, also for Mac OS X.
However, there is more of a problem. Without going any further, version of GTK + 3 is now announcing the 3.6.4 , and it has rained a lot since I was born. The discouragement among some developers, then, is more than expected, although it says that this be resolved in the short term .
On the other hand, is a bit risky to attribute the change of technologies in some applications problems only ‘portability’ . Several examples have been through these pages in that regard (although there are more), as the lightweight desktop LXDE or OpenShot video editor, and in neither case was cited as a cause portability.
Not only that, we also learned last year that passed plans to launch GNOME GNOME 4.0 and GNOME OS in 2014, a proprietary operating system based -it was said at the time- exclusively on Linux . Remains to be seen how it will all, that each draw their conclusions.
a curl but will be addressed in a separate article because it has crumbs: what happens when Ubuntu migrate to Qt? Or how far Ubuntu migrate to Qt?
