RE: Why are people sticking with GTK+ 26.? (Re: GTK+ modularization)

Hi Carl,

I work for the same company as Jesse.  Performance was indeed the
reason.  A lot of us wanted to use the latest and greatest but ARM CPUs
are not what you call "swift".

One thing you might want to look into is changing the usage of doubles.
They are used all over the place and they are way overkill.  On small
platforms like ours this is particularly painful because of floating
point emulation.

I'm personally interested in hearing more details about what your
motivation for sticking with 2.6 is. If it's performance concerns, (as
is the case with others I've talked to), then I should point out that
I'm personally very interested, and planning on fixing those
performance problems.

There's no good reason that GTK+ should have ever gotten slower. So
I'll be working to fix performance regressions. But I need help
identifying them. So anything anyone can share about things they have
hit would be useful. (And thanks to those who have already started
identifying things here on this list.)
