Written by Michael Larabel in LibreOffice on 12 March 2015 at 08:21 PM EDT. 14 Comments
Over the night I wrote about GTK+ 3.x support being improved inside LibreOffice after noticing the relevant Git commits while now the Red Hat developer has come forward and elaborated on his work to improve the GTK-related code within LibreOffice.

Caolán McNamara of Red Hat has written a new blog post since the earlier Phoronix posting about improving the GTK3 VCL plug code fore LibreOffice. The correct UI font is now working, scrolling is working fine, mouse-wheel functionality is there, and other things are starting to pan out.
