LXDE previews Qt port of its desktop
« le: 04 juillet 2013 à 19:25:26 »
"The LXDE developers are working on a Qt-based version of their desktop and have already ported significant parts of the components of LXDE to the user interface framework. While still in an experimental state, the developers could already show a functional desktop with the panel, PCManFM file manager and an image viewer in a working state. Most of the desktop's applets work with the ported panel as well"

PCMan dislikes the way things are going with GTK3, it seems the Qt code has more to offer to light projects now, and is said to be less difficult to code with. the GTK3 project makes big changes at each new version…

Yea, as soon as I saw that PCmanFM went to QT I could see that it was just a matter of time.

Looks like the LXDE guys are talking to the Razor QT boys about working together .

Looks like they are going full steam to a QT based version of LXDE and it is not just a test project now.

LXDE.org is dropping GTK now. They will come out with a few updates but are dropping it in future versions.

What the hell is Gnome doing?

I read the Redhat guys just burn the grass behind them, pushing one GTK-3 version after the other with changes which make the previous versions deprecated and force the people who use/code/make themes for GTK-3 to start (more or less?) again from the ground up. But don't take my word for it, see in other places what they say. (gtk-3.0, 3.2, 3.4, 3.6, 3.8…)

It's like Red Hat is trying to KILL GTG.

EDIT: oops.....GTK
