Re: [platform-ui-dev] [platform-swt-dev] SWT-GTK3 bugs for 4.9

Hello everyone,

4.8 is almost done and many GTK3 bugs have been fixed. For 4.9, we are again focusing on GTK3 bugs and performance issues.

If you are running SWT/Eclipse on GTK2, please try with GTK3 as we are trying to root out all SWT bugs which prevent GTK2 users from switching to GTK3. If you already filed a bug awhile ago, please feel free to email/CC me as a reminder -- we have a backlog of old bugs so sometimes these things slip through the cracks.

We also have the 4.9 GTK3 bug tracker which can be found here: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=535255

It's worth noting that GTK 2 support will be dropped as soon as work towards supporting GTK 4 starts so please stop using GTK 2 backend.
