I am somewhat irritated by the absense of core developers in this thread.
Is translucency considered a core feature or a non interesting niche
candy? Or was this discussed many times ago? (I'm new to _this_ list)
(I somewhat remember translucency mentioned on the roadmap for gtk 3.0)

OT: hrmpf. If only I had the possibility. On my 2nd generation iBook
MacOSX was not included, directFB couldn't handle the display and Win32
is not an option. sigh
Not a problem, the OpenGL hack of X11 already is available. :) Check
Thank you for these very interesting links!
Furthermore, translucent windows seem to be on the roadmap for the
XFree86 5.0. See the 10th entry at
Though it does not get discussed further - meaning low interest by the
core developers? I hope not.
Hey this is about technological advances happening or not in gtk which
are already present in Qt!
PS: I have been very pleased with gtk's advances in the past (pixbuf
integration, treeview). Excellent work!!!
But transparency nags me (being used in my wife's low cost
Windows-tax-program and unavailable for me).
PPS: I use gtkmm.
