    Only one question - can we finally see thumbnails in file chooser dialog after 15 years of wait time?

    Their own. Every point release has major API changes, and there’s never any guarantee that your setup (both users and developers) will remain stable before the next “major” release.
    That is what major releases are for, is it not?

    Well, that's why you have something called Flatpak. The problem is solved.

    If you target the 18.08 runtime (which you should), you don't need to worry about the hosts gtk version breaking your app.

    Now it is a bit tricky to adhere to GNOME HIG by manually specifying 4px, 8px, 12px, 16px pixels everywhere.
    Also often I have to do things like widget.show() or widget.show_all().
    In GTK4 all widgets are visible by default.

    Phoronix: GTK 3.96 Released As Another Step Closer To GTK 4.0

    It's been quite a while since last hearing anything major about the overdue GTK4 tool-kit release but now available is GTK 3.96 as a test version that positions GNOME's tool-kit closer to where they want it for GTK 4.0...
