As I have promised before, I’ll be making status reports on migration of SWT to GTK+ 3 more often from now.
Couple of weeks passed, since I’v posted that we are moving with a good speed towards the goal of building against GTK+ 3.0. And with great pleasure I want to inform you that, last week we were able to build with GTK+ 3.0 and see the shell with Hello World on it.
Today we went even further, and for the first time, I want to show you how ControlExample looks like in GTK+ 3.0 ( to make it work you need to comment out line 108 as BrowserTab produces errors that stops ControlExample to be displayed):
Of course it is far from perfect, but I would say that it is a big step forward considering, that 4 months ago we had bunch of errors (116?) that prevented us from building at all.
What’s Next ? Debugging…debugging….debugging….
I will keep you posted
