Eclipse SWT drops GTK support of versions less than 2.10

Hey guys,

I have some very exciting news on the GTK-SWT front. Finally, SWT drops support for GTK versions older than 2.10, which means that we will have cleaner code.

I have started cleaning SWT from old GTK code, if you are interested how this work goes, you can follow it here.

Have a great weekend! 😉

    Nice to know about this news but it could be problematic for old programming codes, which are seeking to upgrade themselves.

    Nice to hear. On the same side the GTK3+ integration is going forward. But I still wonder, why Eclipse SWT functions under Windows still better than under GTK 😦 Especially in Ubuntu it comes with some visiblity issues (like Spacing and marging).

    to their work whether that be a movie or television show
    on DVD, or some of their records. Have you typed into Google
    “how can I earn online and come” across a few through products that seem too good to
    be true. Set up your blog or website and start writing articles to submit.
