We are already retaining GTK+ 2.x compatibility for MeeGo, so you can still build all Evolution-related modules in a GNOME 2.30 environment. Each module has an --enable-gtk3 configure option ('no' by default) which selects an appropriate set of library dependencies. All the modules have to agree on this setting, however. I had very much wanted to drop the GTK+ 2.x compatibility after September's release, but I guess that's more of an open question now. Since yesterday's announcement I've already made appropriate changes to the wiki and to our code. Beyond that I don't see much impact to our development plan, other than having an extra six months now to complete our stated goals: http://live.gnome.org/Evolution/Planning232 The question of what distros should ship would be better posed to the GNOME release team, although from what they've said publicly so far I don't think even they have a clear picture. Fedora 14 is moving full steam ahead with a GTK+ 3.0 based desktop. Ubuntu had already stated their fear and uncertainty over GTK+ 3.0 even before yesterday, so I imagine they'll stay with GTK+ 2.x. I don't know what other distros have planned. But Evolution 2.32 should be usable for everyone. _______________________________________________ evolution-hackers mailing list email@example.com To change your list options or unsubscribe, visit ... http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/evolution-hackers
