    What about performance? Are there any indications that gtk3 will end up with better performance than the extremely slow gtk2?

    GTK+ 2.22 will also maintain source and binary compatibility with the existing GTK+ 2.22

    Slowness is something I associate more with Qt than with GTK. Got any benchmarks I can check out?

    That is not Gtk's function. That belongs to the window manager, like Compiz.

    Gtk has been object orientated for ages (i.e. GObject supports inheritance, properties, etc). You seem to be confusing the concept of OO with the language implementing it (i.e c++).

    Do you have any benchmarks, or any evidence to support that? I would like to file a bug, assuming you are not trolling of course.

    The hacks non-gtk apps (FireFox, OOo, Java) have to do make theirselves gtk lookalikes is horrible and dead-slow. Just a theme api which would allow to draw to cairo-contexts would make it so much easier.

    AFAIK this was one of the main motivating factors for some of the offscreen window stuff.
