About 10 years ago I started a new hobby: Making contributions to gtkmm and other mm modules. Along the way other contributors have decreased their share in the development of these modules. I have found myself adding the majority of new patches. That was never my intention, but I wanted to have a useful version of gtkmm4 when gtk4 became stable. That has happened now. There are stable versions of gtk4, gtkmm4 and all modules that gtkmm4 depends on.

In the future I intend to spend less time on mm modules than I've done the last few years. An opportunity for other C++ programmers to enter.

Don't misunderstand me. I have not been alone. Other persons have contributed. But I've done a greater part of the job than I intended. And still gtkmm4 and the corresponding version of gtkmm-documentation are not quite finished. Classes in gtk's gsk subdirectory have not been wrapped in C++ code. Neither have classes and methods that use structures from the graphene library. Should there be a C++ binding of graphene? graphenemm? Hopefully most users of gtkmm4 will not need the missing classes and methods urgently. It's always possible to use the C functions directly, although that's not what a C++ programmer would love to do.
