    is there really any use of a php binding for Gtk3? Maybe for any php programmer who is not willing to learn Vala, JS, Python, C or C++. But otherwise

    Perhaps with gtk3 coming to the web browsers with their tech... that'll make it easier for php devs to deal with. Has to spend way less time being productive again.

    Why? If a php dev wants to go clientside, they wouldn't have to learn JS/HTML/CSS stack.

    There are also other bindings for the PHP language to other crossplatform GUI libraries like QT http://php-qt.berlios.de/ that seems pretty much unmaintained and the wxWidgets one that seems to have progressed to a usable level: http://wxphp.org/
