i think you missed my point. this is not about the deprecations. its
about the fact that 2.22 will contain a complete reimplemenation of
the GDK draw routines. this is happening in a branch this is
supposedly "stable". i don't understand how this can reconciled. no
API is changed in order for this to happen, but the implementations
are all new. existing programs will compile and run, but if linked
against 2.22 they will be testing an implementation that was (i
thought) aimed at the 3.0 release line. surely this stuff that should
be in 2.90 ?
