Eclipse Platform: Eclipse runs and is usable on GTK+ 3 [STATUS REPORT 20 NOVEMBER]

If you are passionate about SWT as development tool, you will be very excited to know that SWT runs on GTK+ 3 and it is usable! You have probably seen post, couple of weeks ago, that Eclipse starts successfully.  Today I want to show you a screenshot of how Eclipse on GTK+ 3 looks like  after couple of weeks of debugging:

Image is clickable !

Of course there are number of issues, that should  be resolved, but the progress is obvious!
I will keep you posted 🙂

    Great news! Can’t see the screenshot though as the url is blocked by my company’s proxy server. 😦

    Oh and btw Anatoly, your blog has been mentioned here-> (look for entry #12 in the list)

    I like to see things like this be able to run on as many platforms a possible, so this seems like a good thing. I do hope, though, that the GTK2 version keeps being maintained for a while, as GTK3 stuff can be a little bit of a pain in KDE.

  3. I couldn’t resist commenting. Well written!
