Re: GMenuModel has landed

I haven’t looked at the code yet, but a couple questions came to mind
while reading your summary. Hope you don’t mind if I ask them.

Does this mean different windows belonging to the same application will
not be able to have different per–window menubars? I’m thinking about
Empathy here, with its Buddy List and Conversation windows having
different menubars, but it’s not an uncommon scenario.

I assume Windows will behave like GNOME 2 here. In the GNOME 2 case, is
the app menu collapsed with the menubar somehow?

Resistance is futile, you will be garbage collected.
