Xfce The Xfce project finally finished the second release candidate for the upcoming Xfce Desktop Environment 4.2. This second release candidate is expected to be the last release candidate before the final release, which is planned to happen in about 2 or 3 weeks. This RC2 includes several bugfixes, esp. the window manager has seen quite a few important fixes, and it is the first release in the 4.2 branch that builds and runs on Solaris out of the box. As usual, prebuilt packages for several plattforms are already available (as a highlight: Debian/amd64 packages) and the graphical installers have been update to 4.2RC2. Please check the Xfce website for further details.

gtk 3.x
by Anonymous on Mon 13th Dec 2004 20:00 UTC

The plans for gtk 3.x has not yet been even vaguely defined. some of the original ideas like cairo support has been deemed to be available within 2.x series itself so unless major new features or refactorisations requiring a binary compatibility break is required I dont think its possible for anyone to say anything conclusively but following the developments of gtk would seem to be the logical choice
