BTW, would you remind us (me, anyway) of your long-term plans? ISTR
that right now you're working with the existing GTK+ v1 code. But
that's going to be quite painful in the long run ... are you aiming at
GTK+ v2 for the next big step, or GTK+ v3?
Its been using Gtk+2.X for a year now. My target is late Gnome 2 (gtk
2.29) with deprecated code references removed. (see
XEmacs should also compile with Gtk 3. All of the drawing will be done
with cairo and pango. I have just started removing deprecated code, so
there's still a fair amount to redo. I'm tackling images right now.
It's currently good enough for me to use by default. Display is good (as
long as you use mono fonts), crashes are rare. I suspect events are lost
occasionally, the scrollbar can't be dragged and the mouse wheel doesn't
work, so it's not complete yet.
I haven't done much with the implementing widgets. In the longer term I'm
interested in using gnome introspection to implement the FFI bindings so
that all of the gnome libraries will accessible from elisp. Then the
widgets should be easy. :-)
