GTK Developers Continue Firming Up Their Long-Term Toolkit Plans
Being published today via the GTK+ blog is Versioning and long term stability promise in GTK+. Hit that up if you want all the details about it.
The goal of their long-term stable releases is to make the GTK+ toolkit more predictable and reliable while not slowing down on future GTK+ improvements.
The post authored by Allan Day goes on to explain, "The introduction of long-term stable GTK+ releases is designed to ensure that GTK+ strikes a good balance between each of these audiences. In particular, application developers will have access to a stable platform which nonetheless provides access to new GTK+ features that have been developed during the 3.x series, such as CSS styling, touchscreen support, HiDPI displays support, Wayland support, new widgets, the GTK+ inspector, and more...GTK+ will continue to publish major, minor and micro releases. New major versions will be released once new features have stabilised, which is expected to be roughly every 2-3 years."
GTK+ 3.22.x will be the last release of the 3.x series.
