Overview of Changes in GTK+ 3.7 to 3.9
* GtkFileChooser:
- Always show fuse-mounted locations in shortcuts
- GtkFileChooserButton has received a lot of fixes and tests have
been added for many of them
* GtkWindow:
- Initial support for client-side decorations has been added. This
is going to be used by default under Wayland. To try it with other
backends, set the GTK_CSD=1 environment variable.
- gtk_window_set_titlebar: A new function that can set a custom,
client-side titlebar on toplevel windows.
* Wayland:
- Use client-side decorations
- Implement maximization
- Improve cursor handling
- Improve multi-monitor handling
- Support most GtkSettings (for now by reading GSettings directly)
- Complete the keymap implementation
- Add support for custom surfaces
- Implement animated cursors
- Support the WAYLAND_SOCKET environment variable
- Implement frame synchronizatio
- Document Wayland-specific APIs
* Broadway:
- Improve window size handling
- Implement frame synchronization
- Add support for password authentication
* New APIs, widgets, feature additions:
- GtkHeaderBar is a new widget similar to a GtkBox, with the extra
feature that it can center a child (typically a title), independent
of the other content.
- GtkPlacesSidebar is the sidebar widget in the file chooser, exported
as a public widget - it will be shared with nautilus.
- GtkStack is an alternative to GtkNotebook for showing one of several
child widgets at a time. It supports animated transitions. Tabs are
not built into this widgets, but instead provided by the separate
GtkStackSwitcher widget.
- GtkRevealer is a new new widget that can hide or show its child
in an animated fashion.
- GtkMenuTracker is a helper object that makes dealing with
GMenuModels easier and more efficient.
- gtk_grid_remove_row/column: New functions to remove whole rows
or columns from a GtkGrid
- Support for composite children has been added to GtkWidget. This
allows to create complex widgets from GtkBuilder ui files. All
complex GTK+ widgets have been converted to use this facility.
- Baseline support was added to the GTK+ size allocation machinery.
Widgets can now export the baseline of the text they contain,
and containers can align their children wrt to their baselines.
* Known problems, feature removals, compatibility caveats:
- Handling of window size is currently in flux, and there are
some known problems with sizes unintentionally changing
- Support for the Motif DND protocol has been dropped
- Client-side decorations still have some issues when drawing
directly on toplevel windows or setting their background
- Support for multiple screens per display has been removed. This
was only ever supported on X11, and is an exceedingly rare setup
nowadays. The display-screen relation is now 1:1, and we will do
some more simplification of displaymanager/display/screen/monitor
- gdk_window_get_display has been deprecated
- gtk_widget_push_composite_child has been deprecated - this was
used for anything
- GtkSwitch has been changed to draw focus internally, instead of
reserving space outside the switch for it. This may require some
application adjustment where margins were tweaked to 'correct'
the alignment of switches manually
* Printing:
- Avoid blocking when looking for avahi printers
- Don't link against avahi-gobject, use D-Bus directly
