The state of the GTK+ tool-kit for the Wayland Display Server is now ready for day-to-day use.
Matthias Clasen of Red Hat has been one of several developers recently working on the Wayland back-end to the GTK+3 tool-kit. Clasen spent most of the past two weeks working on Wayland GTK+ support and getting it into shape for "day-to-day usability" by Linux desktop users.
Among the work that's now in good shape is GTK+ client-side decorations
, GTK+ applications picking up desktop settings now directly through GSettings, improved keyboard support (key repeat, reading keyboard settings from GSettings, keyboard state information propogation, etc), handling of keyboard layout changes, support for custom title-bars, and more.
While GTK+ 3.8.0 was released yesterday
with Wayland 1.0 support, all of this brand new work by Clasen and others is currently living on GTK+ master.
More details on the recent GTK+ Wayland improvements can be found in Clasen's blog post
and the Wayland GTK+ Wiki
