Re: Feature suggest for GTK 4

In addition to Emmanuele response:

The retrocompatibility you ae talking about is fom Qt4 to Qt5. Its not
from Qt3 to Qt5.
So the GTK will be backward compatible with GTK3 to GTK4 not GTK2 to GTK4.

Thank you.

English: Add retrocompatibility with GTK 2.x or easy port like QT 4 to QT 5:

Definitely not going to happen.

A lot of API provided by GTK is defined at run time — properties,
signals, even the object types. This means we cannot provide a
compatibility layer like Qt does. Types would collide, properties
would behave differently, signals would not be emitted.

Additionally, a compatibility between GTK 2.x and 4.x is absolutely
out of the question; at most, backward compatibility would extend to
the latest stable release (GTK 3.22) not to the old stable release.
