There's already a lot of new features coming to GTK+ for GNOME 3.16 and now the latest addition is SSL support for the Broadway back-end.

GTK+ Broadway is what allows transmitting and interacting with GTK+ interfaces remotely via HTML5 for rendering in modern web browsers. Broadway has been in mainline GTK+ since GTK 3.2 and continues to see new work quite often even though it hasn't seen any major adoption.

The latest addition to GTK+ Broadway is SSL support. The Broadway daemon now supports HTTPS/secure connections for GTK+ 3.16.
