GTK+ "Ars was at FOSSCamp this weekend. Think of FOSSCamp as an 'un-conference' without a set agenda where the minds behind open source projects get together and plot world domination (and, err, ways to improve their code). One fascinating session (and one that shows how FOSSCamp works and why it's so productive) was given by Mirco Muller, who discussed using OpenGL in GTK applications. Muller - the developer behind Cairo-Clock and the LowFat image viewer - talked about the state of OpenGL support in desktop applications and described various techniques that developers can use to make OpenGL content integrate better with conventional GTK user interfaces."

At the risk of being offtopic, have a look at what's coming down the pipe for Qt. Widgets on graphics view.

If it works well, this is gonna be pretty huge. Fully transformable widgets, so you can animate, scale, rotate, and in general transform any widget very easily, while still retaining all the features of regular widgets (integration with the system style, accessibility, keyboard handling, etc).
