    Nice set of changes. I wonder in what version we would see the gtk3 File open and save as dialogs.

      The GTK3 stuff is definitely the most longed for feature... But I hope they get rid of the Java dependency as well. I'm currently running it without Java (on Gentoo) and I'm getting some warnings every time I upgrade/recompile regarding stability. But it is mostly working fine, I've seen some recurring crashes, but I don't think they're related to Java.

          Maybe you're asking the wrong question Chewi, maybe he just doesn't like java. It's definitely at the core of most issues at my job.

              I was kinda joking. Even I don't like Java that much.

                Hm, nice, single toolbar mode. The multiple toolbars were kinda extraneous ever since the sidebar was introduced, so this will save on prized vertical screen space for all my low-res devices.
