Back in July I wrote about how there was a rather apparent trademark collision with Groupon's Gnome.

GTK+ 3.16's New GtkGLArea Widget Gets Improved

Earlier this month GTK+ 3.16 development code gained native OpenGL support. This GTK+ OpenGL support involved adding support for wrapping an OpenGL context for native windows with GLX on X11 and EGL on Wayland to use OpenGL to paint everything. A GtkGLArea widget was also added for providing OpenGL drawing access within GTK+ applications. The GtkGLArea has already seen some more improvements to better GTK's OpenGL support.
