This is just FYI; a mailing list retweet. This absolutely justifies why we restrict our library dependencies to stable releases only. Fortunately for us we still use libunique.
-------- Forwarded Message -------- From: Ryan Lortie <de...@desrt.ca> To: desktop-devel-l...@gnome.org Subject: GApplication is going away Date: Thu, 02 Sep 2010 16:37:46 +0200 Hello GApplication is going to be removed from GLib soon. This was decided at GUADEC, but due to some external factors (vacation and other projects at work) the task of replacing it has proceeded slowly. Add to that that it's really a difficult task to get right. The short story is this: anyone who is using GApplication right now is going to have a bumpy ride in the near future. You may want to consider going back to libunique for this cycle. I am going to try hard to get the replacement in a state that it can be merged before the glib release (still planned for this month) but I may not succeed. In fact, I'm not sure that I want to succeed -- we're planning a glib release for December already and a few more months of review might produce a better product in the end. If we decided to remove GApplication support entirely then we will probably also remove the related classes that were added for it.
