GTK+ Gets Smoother Scrolling, Support To Turn Off Input Methods
Written by Michael Larabel in GNOME on 25 February 2015 at 07:53 AM EST. 11 Comments
A new development release of GNOME's GTK+ tool-kit is now available ahead of next month's official GNOME 3.16 release.

The new GTK+ 3.15.9 release tagged on Tuesday by Matthias Clasen brings in a few last minute changes. In particular, there's improvements to GtkScrolledWindow, input methods can now be turned off entirely, and there's some drag-and-drop support to the GTK3 Icon Browser (gtk3-icon-browser). There's also a handful of bug fixes in this new GTK+ release, including DPI and OpenGL related fixes to GTK's Wayland back-end.

The GtkScrolledWindow improvements in this release include a change to avoid "jumping" when zoom scrolling turns on, zoom scrolling itself is now harder to trigger, and steppers now use smooth auto-scrolling.

More details on the GTK+ 3.15.9 release that's coming in right after the GNOME 3.16 Beta can be found from yesterday's Git tag.
