Re: GTK+ Mac OS X state of the union

The most challenging task remaining now is to make GTK+ use the built-in
double-buffering features that exist in Mac OS X; I have sort of an idea
on how to do this and I'll send off a proposal shortly to the list, since
this most certainly changes some of the low-level parts of GDK)

We at Imendio always welcome help, there's a list of things to do availabe

varying degrees of difficulty.

Looking good so far; I just got it all compiled. gtk-demo runs, though with a bunch of visual glitches (BG of many windows is black, BG of parts of scrollbars is black, etc.). If I have some more time, I'd love to try and tackle a few items on the TODO list.

I have a question though about menu bars. I'm sure this is a bit tricky to handle, but might there be a way to designate that a particular GtkMenuBar attached to a particular window is the "main" menubar, and somehow merge its contents into the OS X top-of-screen menubar? I'm a little stumped as to the best way to do this, since technically you can pack as many menubars as you want into a single window. Thoughts?
