Yet another release for the unstable branch of the popular widget toolkit

Two new releases for the unstable branches of the GTK+ toolkit and its “basis” the GLib were made available a few hours ago. Apart from the expected bug fixing that took place, both GTK+ and GLib implemented new functions and features on this release that indirectly expand the possibilities of Gnome developers, and thus our [...]
If we divide GNOME 3 in Gnome-Shell and Gnome-Gtk (Apps/Tools); on one hand we have the strong visual personality of Shell and on the other side, a total neutral look of Gtk Apps that pass by unnoticeable. Do neutral /common designs fit to everyone?
GTK+ 3.6.4 was released a few hours ago with only one bug fix. Does this mean that developers feel that the 3.6 branch has reached perfection, or is it that all hands are working on the exciting performance improvements that the 3.8 release will bring? Combined with the many bug fixes of the 3.6.3 release, [...]

This is a follow up post from the “Making GTK3 themes” series. The first post can be found here and the second post can be found here. So in the last post we went through the basics of the gtk.css and gtk.widgets.css files. Customizing the CSS file is up-to you. Pickup your Favorite theme and start [...]
You may think or imagine that customizing GTK themes requires special knowledge and a lot of time, but with my new tool it just got easier than ever! Here is a gtk theme configure tool that allows users to change some basic elements of a GTK theme (both GTK2 and GTK3) using a simple interface. [...]
..43.80$ more correctly, because that’s the cost of 1GB Ram Server in Rackspace :) I was compiling a Rails App on Rackspace and it takes and hour to be completed, so I thought to spend some time and money doing stupid things. I deployed an Ubuntu 12.04, I installed GTK with Broadway support and I [...]
