As good news for those of you interested in GTK+ applications on Mac OS X and other operating systems, or to even run such applications within a Wayland Display Server
on Linux rather than an X Server, this tool-kit used by GNOME continues to become more X11-agnostic and easier to port.
Kristian Rietveld, a long-time GTK+ developer, has reported on additional rendering clean-up work being completed. We've already reported on most of the rendering clean-up being completed
and that this tool-kit is using Cairo more for drawing
, among other improvements to be found within GTK+ 3.0 when released next year. Thanks to all of this work, the very latest GTK+ code is running rather well on Mac OS X with Quartz, among other software configurations.
