More GTK+ Wayland Improvements Landing

Written by Michael Larabel in Wayland on 3 September 2013 at 05:35 PM EDT. 4 Comments
GNOME developers hope that GNOME 3.10 will be in decent shape for initially supporting Wayland as an alternative to X11/X.Org. There's already been improvements made to GNOME Shell, the GTK tool-kit, and other components. Committed today to GTK+ was more Wayland work.

Now supported by GTK+ is a private GTK-Shell protocol to be used by Mutter-Wayland and GTK for replacing GTK X11 properties for DBus names/paths.

In another commit there is restored support for the application menu on Wayland.
