Development on the GTK+ 4.0 tool-kit continues moving along and this weekend has seen 100+ commits dropping various deprecated and outdated code.

Among the items getting dropped in the big batch of commits today were removing GtkHBox, gtkvbox, GtkPlug, GtkSocket, GtkWin32EmbedWidget, GtkStyle, GtkStock, GtkArrow, GtkMisc, GtkHandleBox, GtkImageMenuItem, GtkHSV, GtkIconSet, GtkModifierStyle, GtkIconFactory, GtkThemingEngine, GtkStyleProperties, and many other components to GTK and deprecated APIs.

The big clean-up so far can be found via the GTK+ Git code.

Coming up soon should still be the addition of the GTK Scene Kit. Stay tuned to Phoronix for more news concerning GTK+ 4.0 and GNOME 3.24 development.
