Subject: Re: supporting GTK 3.0 only?
To: Mats Lidell <matsl(a)xemacs.org>
Right now, xemacs-gtk is pretty usable with GTK 2.X. I've ifdefed
everything so its compilable in both, I just haven't made configure support
both versions. I'll probably tackle a simple change forcing you to pick
one or another.
It's doing its text drawing using Pango. The font loading is currently
pretty simple. It should be possible to use FC fonts, but I haven't tried
them. In other word, you should be able to use the same font names as in
The biggest annoyance is that clicking the mouse always starts the
selection so you have to hit enter to cancel it. There's lots of
flickering and the toolbar doesn't show. It works well enough that I can
use it to develop itself.
The port to GTK 3.0 is mostly complete, but non-functional. It currently
dies in early initialization, long before it gets to GTK.
I'll send a message here when it does something useful.

If you need help with testing, please drop a line.
By the way, what is the status of GTK with XEmacs? I had more or less
given up in it since no one was working on it and I realized that I
could not put in enough effort to contribute to it either. i.e. could
it be a solution for the 21.5 problems with xft-fonts etc?
