LibreOffice has continued receiving more GTK3 improvements and this week was no different with this open-source office suite now having better support for GNOME's toolkit.

Developer Caolán McNamara who has been doing much of the GTK3 integration work for LibreOffice was also responsible for this week's improvements. LibreOffice is finally now making use of the GTK themeing APIs to draw elements like they do in GTK+ rather than LibreOffice drawing everything itself, which results in a better looking office suite integrated with your desktop.

Among the elements now being drawn by GTK+ itself are tooltips, popovers, context menus, and more.

Caolán McNamara has written a blog post covering the new LibreOffice GTK3 native elements with screenshots of before/after this recent round of improvements.
