GNOME --
While GTK4 likely isn't coming out until next spring, the Nautilus file manager port to this updated tool-kit is well underway.

GNOME contributor Ernestas Kulik has provided an update on the porting effort of Nautilus to GTK+ 4. Nautilus is now building under GTK4 and can run, but a lot of work remains.

At this stage some input event handlers are not behaving correctly, other important functionality like drag-n-drop in some cases not working, scrolling in canvas view being broken, and other changes needed.
