This is the first development release loading up to GTK+-2.4.
This release contains a number of major new widgets and capabilities
including: an action based menu system, a replacement for
GtkFileSelector, and a new unified GtkComboBox widget that replaces both
GtkOptionMenu and GtkCombo.

I'm gonna try an ebuild right now. Epiphany cvs recently was ported to gtk 2.3. Note that GTK 2.3.x will all be unstable/testing, and the stable release will be 2.4, like the Linux Kernel.

Edit: Here they are:
http://floam.ascorbic.com/gentoo/glib-2.3.0.ebuild
http://floam.ascorbic.com/gentoo/gtk+-2.3.0.ebuild
http://floam.ascorbic.com/gentoo/pango-1.3.0.ebuild
Remember that GTK+ 2.3.0 is very beta and could possibly damage stuff. So far I have noticed that gedit crashes on startup. Other things also randomly don't work.

Unfortunately the new file selector won't work straight off with apps. They have to be rewritten to take advantage of it, but I expect this won't take long in most cases.

Really? So what will happen with GTK 2.2 apps? Will they segfault, or will the old one be used? From what I've read of the mailing list, 2.4 will be backwards compatable.

I just finished the GTK 2.3.0 ebuild. I'll upload it once I have also completed the glib 2.3.0 ebuild and the pango 1.3 ebuild to go with it.

Older apps will work but will just display the old fileselector dialog. They had to change the interfaces, simply because the old ones were so bad (that's what's been holding the new box back for so long).

floam, BTW some of the patches apply, so no need to remove them all from your ebuilds.

Heres what you've been waiting for... it also has a preview pane for some files.

It seems to me I am able to run a few gtk2 apps, but almost all gnome2 apps fail with "Trace/breakpoint trap" errors.

I'm gonna try recompiling some misc. gnome libs and see what happens.

I'm hoping that fileselector design is not set in stone yet, because it is just not "there" yet, seems to be very preliminary.

Also, wtf does "frobnicate the file" mean?

That new file selector design looks... interesting. It isn't finished yet, so i guess its pretty good :P . I don't really care too much about the file selector, as long as its useable.

Good question :?
Quote:
frobnicate



/frob'ni-kayt/ (Possibly from frobnitz, and usually
abbreviated to frob, but "frobnicate" is recognised as the
official full form). To manipulate or adjust, to tweak.
One frequently frobs bits or other 2-state devices. Thus:
"Please frob the light switch" (that is, flip it), but also
"Stop frobbing that clasp; you'll break it". One also sees
the construction "to frob a frob".

Usage: frob, twiddle, and tweak sometimes connote points
along a continuum. "Frob" connotes aimless manipulation;
"twiddle" connotes gross manipulation, often a coarse search
for a proper setting; "tweak" connotes fine-tuning. If
someone is turning a knob on an oscilloscope, then if he's
carefully adjusting it, he is probably tweaking it; if he is
just turning it but looking at the screen, he is probably
twiddling it; but if he's just doing it because turning a knob
is fun, he's frobbing it. The variant "frobnosticate" has
also been reported.

The file selector seems to be built around the Panther file selector.

i.e. user-selected root directories.

The look is not final, at least according to the people on the GTK mailing lists.

Its a shame the new combo box doesnt allow you to change "option" by scrolling with scroll button . (old option menu does).

But I am busy converting gtodo to the new widgets and its looking good.. (I remove more code then I add)

And just what is that thing with folders on the left?

Does it show folders, bookmarks or both? Why is there no description of what it is? (I assume "Files of type: " has nothing to do with it.)

I'm had the same problem using the development snapshots of X, went back to the 4.3.0-r3 release and all is well...
