no, but gtkmm2 is a lot cleaner in many areas. if you don't have much
code written yet, it would probably be a good idea.

either pass it that or face facts and make it global. in my code i
generally have a single "UI" object which is a singleton, and other
threads do stuff like:


but the truth is that this is just OOP syntactic candy for a global variable.

the java multithread system runs on pthreads (at least on linux). it
just removes most of the power and flexibility in favor of simplicity.

i don't really understand the problems you think you are facing. for
reference, my current main project generally has 9 threads running,
only one of which does GUI work, but 5 of which need to change aspects
of the GUI display. i don't use the Dispatcher because i'm stuck with
gtkmm1.2 for now, but i use a very similar home-grown mechanism (it
might even have been part of the inspiration for the Dispatcher, but
i'm sure enough to claim that).
