I'm for one wandering how to port my application to gtk+ 3.0.  My
problem is that the current gdk pixbuf nor cairo does not have a
client side pixel buffer other than RGB888 or RGBA8888.

I have been happily using GdkImage, which can support RGB565 with
appropriate Visual, but now GdkImage seems to be a candidate for
removal for Gtk+ 3.0.  I've checked Benjamin's blog[1], but it seems
like his page is not touching non-24/32bit client side buffer issue.


what am I missing? or what should I do to port a RGB565 application to
new 3.0 platform?

Thanks in advance,
