Berlin GTK+ Hackfest
GTK+ and its future is of extreme importance to GNOME. The issue of GTK+ maintenance has been subject of much discussion recently, and based on feedback from advisory board members and the GTK+ maintainers, we have decided that organizing a focused meeting is the most efficient way for the foundation to help with this issue.
As a result, the GNOME Foundation is organizing the first Berlin GTK+ Hackfest, a one-week meeting of the GTK+ core development team.
Hackfest is scheduled for the week of March 10, 2008 in Berlin. It will be a small invitation-only event, designed to tackle specific tasks that have been sitting on GTK+'s TODO list. Invitations have already been sent out to developers involved, and it is expected that twenty-five people will attend the meeting. The biggest planned agenda items include:
- Release planning for next stable release, currently scheduled for GUADEC, July 2008
- Integrating support for the new virtual GLib filesystem support in, gio
- Canvas widget, and considering it as the base for widget rendering in the future
- Generic HTML widget/library (with pluggable backends)
- GObject introspection: an automatable future for language bindings
- Future of D-BUS GLib integration and Gsettings
- Session management API
I'm trying to pull it all together, and Mathias Hasselmann (aka tbf)
is doing the local organization.
