Please let us know what you think.

This deprecated several classes (GtkIconFactory, GtkIconSet,
GtkIconSource, GtkImageMenuItem, GtkAction, GtkUIManager).

for GtkUIManager we already have a replacement that covers about 95%
of the use cases: GtkBuilder.

GAction replaces GtkAction; images on menus have been discouraged for
years, and the whole menu system has been replaced by GMenu XML
descriptions that can be exported on the session bus.

named icons have been replacing stock items for years; API is
available both in GTK (GtkIconTheme) and in GIO (GIcon, GThemedIcon,

All these? And what replace them?

you should have read the thread and the document linked at the start of it.

Should I just stop using gtk+ for
development? I have not so much available time and rewriting code using
deprecated classes should not use it all. I clearly prefer spend time on
new code, or fixing bugs.

you can still use deprecated classes until we break GTK for 4.0.
deprecation does not mean removal, it just means that the deprecated
API should not ("should not", not "must not") be used in newly written
