Today I have removed support for GTK+-2.0
, because GTK+-3.0
does not support it
Why did I do this?
- As with all new versions of GTK+-3.0 comes with
interesting features (such as CSS to customize the
widgets) that are not available in GTK+-2.0. It is
relatively a handicap for development.
- GTK+-2.0 is much heavier than GTK+-3.0, because
GTK+-3.0 removes many features depreciated. This
handicaps even more the development, requiring many #ifdef block
in the code.
- The library WebKitGTK already has a port to GTK+-3.0
(although they still maintain the development of the branch GTK+-2.0),
so switching to GTK+-3.0 will be invisible on this side
- GTK+-3.0 is already in the repositories of many GNU/Linux
distributions (such as Gentoo, Debian testing/sid,
archlinux, ...), its installation for the developer
and/or the user is not the most complicated. On this point, we
could say that is because this version was released several
So I wont maintain any longer the support of the two releases, I
encourage you to install GTK+-3.0
if not already done.
