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, 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.


RGB565 does not seem to be a popular format for a desktop anymore, but
it is still used in embedded platform.  so, I'd love to see a good
RGB565 support in Gtk+.

so, what should I do to port a RGB565 application to new platform?

Thanks in advance,
