Written by Michael Larabel in LibreOffice on 17 February 2016 at 08:15 AM EST. 8 Comments
Last year LibreOffice made much progress in receiving GTK3 support that it also began running on Wayland. The battle though is not over and more GTK3 improvements are still forthcoming.

Caolán McNamara, the developer that did much of the original GTK+ 3.x work for LibreOffice, wrote a new blog post about other recent work for this leading open-source office suite.

He wrote that now in LibreOffice's master code-base is now support for theming changes that are coming with GTK+ 3.20, there is now support for drag and drop with the GTK3 back-end, and there is Wayland GStreamer video playback support within LibreOffice.
