GNOME 2.31.4 will be making the leap from gtk+-2.0 to gtk+-3.0, and that means we have to follow suit in Evolution 2.31.4.
This contradicts our usual policy of only depending on stable libraries so you can always build the latest development release on a stable GNOME platform. But being on the cusp of the GNOME 2 to GNOME 3 transition, some disruption is to be expected. We will return to our normal policy after GNOME 3.0 is released and the next development cycle begins. I debated whether to support both gtk+-2.0 and gtk+-3.0 simultaneously, since other smaller GTK-based projects are attempting this, but decided against it because it would double the number of possible configuration permutations we'd now have to support: all existing permutations with gtk+-2.0 + all existing permutations with gtk+-3.0. That will lead to more confusion and more bugs, which we have enough of as is. If someone wants to take ownership of adding and -supporting- gtk+-2.0 backward compatibility, I'll be happy to review patches. But officially we're moving on. _______________________________________________ evolution-hackers mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org To change your list options or unsubscribe, visit ... http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/evolution-hackers
