      Will be interested to see how good the multitouch is. Hopefully will get stuff like pinch to zoom or 2 finger scrolling sorted natively.

        I can't wait to read all the comments here about how GTK+ sucks and everyone should switch to Qt because "everyone" has already switched to Qt!

          Yes, only those using Gnome didn't switch to Qt for obvious reasons. Everyone else, including those who care about the 98% of users, switched to Qt, including Linus Torvalds with his diving app.

            There's a few examples of how multitouch will work in 3.14 in this blog post today.

              It's strange how 10 years ago I was a kde fan who couldn't stand gnome, while nowadays it's the reverse.

              I kinda like the default settings of gnome, great taste, lots of screen real estate for webpages good localization etc. I hope gnome and gtk will keep going strong.

                GtkInspector seems like a pretty cool tool.

                Yay for GNOME Classic support under Wayland!

                  Blame Debian years-old software. 3.13.92 in Arch [gnome-unstable] run very smooth, except ever known things like huge memory leak etc.

                  The only gripe I have with tablets its their on-screen keyboard, its just not as good as real one.

                    I assume you mean 3.13.92-1 and what I've used [as I have it installed] works well.
