    Phoronix: GTK 3.98.2 Released As Another Step Towards GTK4

    GTK 3.98.2 is out as the latest development snapshot in the road to the overdue but much anticipated GTK 4.0...

    In the Gtk1 days tools quickly migrated to Gtk2 once it was out
    In the Gtk2 days tools slowly migrated to Gtk3 once it was out
    In the Gtk3 days tools quickly migrated to Qt because developers got sick of the Gtk "problems" that came with the transition phase. Not to mention its uglyness.
    In the Gtk3 days nothing moved to the upcoming Gtk4

    So it might be another step towards Gtk4 but I bet that many programs still remain Gtk2 or Gtk3.

        I think the only program I still use that still uses GTK2 is GIMP.

          And people like us will move on to Krita once we finally use it enough and it doesn't seem so alien when compared to using GIMP.

          And Steam...

            I don't follow GTK closely, so the following is not me trolling, it's a genuine question: why is GTK 4 "much anticipated"? Iirc, it was supposed to be just a stable GTK 3. What changed?

              My small "Offtop":
              I follow this forum 2nd month and I'm a newbie compared to users here
              I've 3 quick questions:
              1. When will GTK3 stop developed? (These GTK3 didn't impress me)
              2. When can we expect the release of GTK4? (GTK4 will be in Gnome ver. 3.38?)
              3. What to expect from GTK4?

                  Your assumption is wrong. There is much more to GTK4 than stabilizing things. You might have a read here:

                    The one thing attracting to me is the vulkan backend.
                    The rendering engine of Gtk4 is finally on a par with macOS Mojave.

                    Another anticipating thing of mine comes from Gnome 4.
                    I think they may split the compositor process and the shell process during the transition to Wayland.
                    Currently they are they same one, and a segfault from shell takes down the whole DE.
