GTK+ scene graph
For the GTK+
hackfest I wanted to start a discussion about why people are doing
custom “canvas” things (HippoCanvas, Clutter, GooCanvas, Pigment,
etc.) and how GTK+ could evolve to address the same problems.
The proposal in a nutshell is that widgets should be one kind of
object in a more flexible scene graph. But there are many details.
The two GTK+ enhancements I’m most excited about are gobject-introspection
and this scene graph (“canvas”) problem.
