GTK 3.98

Filed under
GNOME

A few days ago, I’ve released a GTK 3.98 tarball. This is another step towards GTK 4. It is a little bit behind schedule, and does not quite include all the things we wanted to get into it, but it gets a lot closer to what we want to ship in GTK 4.

Almost 9 months have passed since the 3.96 snapshot, so there are quite a few new things to look at. Too many to cover them all, but here are some highlights...

  • The snap developer’s guide on how to migrate to new bases | Ubuntu

    A couple of weeks ago, we published an article about Ubuntu 16.04 entering Extended Security Maintenance (ESM), and the implications of this change for snap publishers. We talked about the different options available to developers and publishers who still may rely on the older bases in their build process – free Ubuntu Advantage (UA) tokens, Launchpad and Snapcraft Build Service, snapcraft support for ESM base, and others. However, for the majority of publishers, migrating away from the ESM base (core) to core18 and core20 offers the highest degree of flexibility. This will allow them to build snaps with the latest builds of snapcraft, enjoy current and future improvements in the ecosystem, and provide their users with the best possible experience. Today, in this guide, we outline several common, practical tips for the migration to newer bases.

  • David Rosen of Wolfire Games explains why they're taking on Valve in a lawsuit

    Recently we wrote about how Wolfire Games (Lugaru, Overgrowth, Receiver) engaged in a legal battle with Steam owner Valve in regards to alleged anti-competitive behaviour. Wolfire's David Rosen has now written up a blog post to explain their feelings on why. It's worth noting that Rosen was one of the original founders of the Humble Indie Bundle, later spun off into its own Humble Bundle company and then sold to IGN. Rosen then, you would think, has a reasonably good grasp on how all this works on the business side. It's somewhat amusing that the blog post starts with "Dear gamers", which probably isn't going to do them any favours in such a legal battle.
