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

This latest GTK4 development release finishes their re-implementation of GtkPopovers, splitting up of the GdkSurface API, new infrastructure around keyboard shortcuts using event controllers, new Pango features exposed by GtkTextTag, and finishing up drag-and-drop refactoring. GTK 3.98.2 has also seen various clean-ups and fixes to the tool-kit's codebase.

GTK developers are still wanting to integrate a new animation API, better accessibility support, and row-recycling list and grid views before pushing GTK 4.0 stable.
