After all these years of not adding API, or deprecating API, in micro
releases, I feel very uneasy about doing that in gtkmm 3.22.* just
because GTK+ seems to be doing it.

No plans for a 3.24, no. I don't think there is much of a problem with adding deprecations - they are really a tool to help people prepare for the jump to the next version. If you want to stick with 3.22.x, there is no reason to chase deprecations.

As for new API, we have been pretty careful so far, and only allowed some very minor additions in 3.22.x. Any examples you are thinking of ?

But if there will never be a GTK+ 3.24, we could have a gtkmm 3.24 that
adds and deprecates API without causing too much confusion in the

I'm afraid that a gtkmm 3.24 that is based on gtk+ 3.22 would cause quite a bit of confusion.
