Popovers GTK Branch Is Now Merged On Master! [GNOME 3.12]

Around a month ago, I had wrote about the “Popovers” branch of GTK and I had said that hopefully Popovers will arrive in GNOME 3.12. Today, thanks to the work of Carlos Garnacho, popovers are available for anyone to use them!

Popovers are of course theme-able: GtkPopovers are menu alike widgets that are shown pointing to a definite area. Entries and textviews define some of those that act as OSD for certain touch operations. GNOME 3.12 code freeze is in less than a month, and don’t expect a heavy use of Popovers in upcoming GNOME.

Check on Matthias Clasen post to learn more; he also demonstrates the Touch Selections.

Goings On | And Now, Popovers

Just Another Good Day for GTK!
