    Phoronix: GTK 3.99.1 Released As The Latest Development Step Towards GTK4

    Just over one month ago was the GTK 3.99 release and now that has been succeeded by GTK 3.99.1 in getting quite close to the long-awaited GTK 4.0 tool-kit release...

        Good lord, I hope they finally enable colors and other parameters to be set by variables. I run XFCE so I won't have to worry about GTK4 for awhile, but I spent years off and on developing my own custom theme for GTK2, and then porting it to GTK3. And the main reason it took so long is that every single color, shadow, transparency, etc. had to be coded with absolute numbers.

        And the most amazing thing is that the GTK developers actually allowed faux variables to be set, but they meant absolutely nothing. They were simply comments. I remember in the very beginning spending a week or so completely confused as to why changing the "variables" didn't do anything, and when I discovered the truth I was stunned, and even a little angry.

        To this day it's one of the most bizarre and ridiculous engineering faux pas I've ever encountered.

          The sphere moving around in the Layout Manager in the bottom would make a really, really cool loading icon and startup animation.

            The next GNOME release could be 3.40 or 4.0

              Yeah, because it took 9 years of f**king misery with GNOME 3, spawning multiple half-assed GNOME 2 desktop off-shots in the process, before GNOME 3 is now actually really useful, smooth running and a promising desktop for the future.

              It absolutely must be time for a GNOME 4.0...

                Nice to see Phoronix comments being rational and well-thought as usual /s

                  The original Gnome 3 was three steps forwards and 6 steps backwards.

                  We're still one or two steps behind.

                  Thanks Gnome team, you contributed to slow down Linux desktop progress and adoption for 8 good years.

                  And most of it to chase the stupid touch screen and Apple UI fads.
