Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Limiting GTK versions supported by SWT or SWT call for help

BTW we at Advantest are still using RHEL 5.8, even because RHEL has crazy long support times :o) 

Limiting to GTK3 only and drop GTK2 ports for *new* Eclipse releases would be good idea but AFAK GTK3 SWT port is still problematic (I'm on *latest* Ubuntu and must turn it off). 

In general I would also prefer to have always *one* (smallest possible from latest GTK on major distros) SWT port for latest Eclipse release but that port must be 99% usable. 

I won't hijack the thread, but the best long term solution for SWT Linux ports and Eclipse UI toolkit in general would be to move away from SWT to Java FX or better Qt (I know Qt LGPL license is a showstopper, but this *is* technically viable alternative). Without the man power of IBM (which originally allowed SWT to be developped for so many different plattforms) SWT as we have it today has no feature.
