These are the notes taken based on our meeting at GUADEC last week.


• Hackfest
 ∘ Planned for October w22 (18th-22nd)
 ∘ Igalia Offices
 ∘ Foundation say they will pay for accommodation (budget is 8-10k)
 ∘ Companies pay for flights
 ∘ Need a volunteer to blog about this!
 ∘ Need a wiki page with planned attendees
 ∘ Will start a discussion about it on GTK+ devel for arrangements

• Release for GTK+ 3.0 delayed until Christmas
 ∘ Feature freeze around November

• Release for GLib planned by late August

• Review needed of Benjamin's 'rendering-cleanup' branch:
 ∘ Recommended that owen/mclasen/timj take a look
 ∘ Who is affected by this branch?
   ‣ Biggest users is perhaps Metacity?
   ‣ GIMP (shouldn't be a problem according to Mitch)
   ‣ GNOME Games?
 ∘ Advantage
   ‣ Lots of other unnecessary backend code gets removed
     ∘ Propose to deprecate "expose" for non-toplevel windows for 2.22?
   ‣ Instead pass Cairo context in a new "draw" event.
     • Cody = Win32
     • Kris = Quartz
     • Ryan/Benjamin = X11
   ‣ Want to remove "no-expose" events if we have no GC, should be fine

• Review needed of animation branch for consideration in GTK+ 3.0
 ∘ Should be aligned vaguely at least to the Clutter APIs
Where is this animation branch? Because I've been implementing my
own animation framework and I'd like to know what should I drop or
maybe some parts can be reused in that animation branch.

• Review needed of Carlos' style branch
 ∘ Some work needed in porting existing themes
 ∘ Possibly work required with existing animated widgets:
   ‣ GtkExpander
   ‣ GtkSpinner
 ∘ Sapwood ported already by Sven and seems to work nicely
ACTION: garnacho or Lanedo labs time to help finish this

• GtkSearchEngine ported to Tracker (perhaps using GBus?)
ACTION: martyn or juergbi will do this
