GTK+ "On the 2008 GTK+ Hackfest in Berlin, Imendio's GTK+ hackers presented their vision of GTK+'s future and the reasons why they think that GTK+ has to make a step forward, embrace change and break ABI compatibility. Other GTK+ developers have also voiced their opinions, listing parts of GTK+ that need serious love, but state that they don't require breakage. Whether or not these are the things that will mark the road to GTK+ 3.0, almost all of them need attention. And give hints to the shape of things to come."

C?

Will it still be in C? If so why why why? OOP is very nice for GUIs. I mean I honestly don't really care because I am KDE user and not C++ programmer either.

If it's just that they didn't like C++ they could have found some other compiled OOP language. To go on a tangent I think what the OSS world needs is a OOP language that is statically typed and compiled that is not C++. I mean considering all the security risks with C/C++ it makes no sense to use them when just getting 95% of that performance will do.</rant>
