This past week the GTK+ road-map was updated during the GTK hackfest with more plans for the future, on top of their new vision for GTK+ 4.0 and beyond.

The work that remains on the GTK roadmap for the GNOME 3.22 release this fall includes the (already completed) Wayland graphics tablet support along with plans for an image viewing widget, merging GSK, an image viewing widget, moving menu placement to GDK for Mir/Wayland, cleaning up display/screen/monitor code, GtkPathBar improvements, and more.

Still on the table for GTK+ 3.x is a new CSS parser, a new combo box, in-app notifications, deprecating GtkButtonBox, simplified icon themes, and moe.

Further out on the roadmap for GTK+ 4.0 or later is a new print dialog, transforms for widgets, unified input handling, a content chooser, editable tablets, undo/redo in GTK, and much more.

You can see the latest GTK roadmap via the GNOME Wiki.
