This is a summary of an IRC meeting of the GTK+ team held on Monday April 12. A complete log of the conversation can be found at: http://www.gtk.org/plan/meetings/20040412.txt In attendance: Jonathan Blandford, Anders Carlsson, Matthias Clasen, Noah Levitt, Federico Mena Quintero, Kris Rietveld, Soeren Sandmann, Manish Singh, Owen Taylor Future meetings =============== Owen proposed announcing the meetings on gtk-devel-list in the future rather than private invitations; everybody seemed OK with that. Next meeting is tentatively in one week - April 19; Owen will announce it if there is anything to discuss. We'll try doing it 1 hour earlier (21:00 UTC) since the 22:00 UTC time seems a bit later for the Europeans. Also discussion of turning off bug mail to gtk-bugs gtk org mailing list and having people watch the address in their bugzilla email preferences instead. Seemed to be general favor. (Owen and Matthias are already doing this.) GTK+-2.4.1 ========== Plan is to do it at the beginning of next week; approximately Monday April 19. Release assignments: Anders and Federico will divide up GLib and GTK+ between them. Owen will do Pango. Triaging: Matthias: ComboBox, UIManager, GdkPixbuf Owen: GLib, Pango, gtk+/gtk, gtk/general Soeren: GDK Noah: input-methods Jonathan and Federico: Filechooser Jonathan: GtkTreeView There will generally be no attempt to fix additional bugs between now and 2.4.1 other than: - Trivial patches to apply - Critical patches to apply Branching ========= Two options for creating a gtk-2-4 branch were discussed: 1) Do it now 2) Do it after 2.4.1 Since it's only a week until 2.4.1, we picked that option. At the same time, the ChangeLog will moved aside. GTK+-2.6 schedule ================= People seemed generally happy with the schedule Owen posted to the list. Some discussion of how it fit into the GNOME-2.8/GNOME-2.10 schedule: GNOME-2.8 final: mid september GTK+-2.6 slush freeze: mid october GTK+-2.10 final: mid december Which is a little tight for new development against the GTK+-2.6 APIs before they freeze but generally fairly reasonable. GTK+-2.6 features ================= Generally strong support (especially from Jonathan, Federico, Anders) for trying to functionally replace libgnomeui in GTK+-2.6 -- meaning adding features like an application window, wizard, about box, session management, and command line option parser. There was also discussion of improving geometry management (height-for-width) and sizing specification in units other than points. Height-for-width in particular would be very nice to get in this release; the main thing here is whether it can be kept well defined and small enough. Lorenzo Gil Sanchez's GtkGrid widget is looking promising, though it would probably have to have some fairly extensive application use before we'd want to consider it for inclusion in GTK+ proper. People were encouraged to put detailed plans for widgets and features in the plan/ section of www.gtk.org.
