Some components of gnome-shell-40 will use gtk-4. And I don't think there is some way to disable those components.

A message (bad, IMO): gtk-4.2 will be ABI incompatible with gtk-4.0. Hopefully gtk-4.6 will be ABI-stablized. Until that we should refer gtk-4.x with major.minor.

And gtk-4.1.y are pre-releases of 4.2. We should use 4.0.y (now 4.0.3).

epiphany-40 needs webkitgtk-2.32 (or 2.31, but it's pre-release).

Priority: normalelevated



Overview of changes in GLib 2.67.1

* Deprecate `g_time_zone_new()` in favour of `g_time_zone_new_identifier()`,
  which makes error checking easier (#553)

* Remove `volatile` from various public APIs, including `G_DEFINE_*`. You should
  adjust your code to not use `volatile` for atomic variables, `GOnce`
  variables, or mostly anything else (see (#600)

* Support passing file handles to `gdbus` command line tool (work by
  Norbert Pocs and Tim Waugh) (#961)

* Add `g_assert_cmpstrv()` test convenience function (work by Niels De Graef) (#2015)

* Changes to the behaviour of the `G_URI_FLAGS_SCHEME_NORMALIZE` scheme
  normalization flag in `GUri` (work by Carlos Garcia Campos) (#2257, !1716)

* Add new `--run-prefix` and `--skip-prefix` options to GTest, to allow running
  or skipping test suites by prefix (work by Frederic Martinsons) (!1738)

* Fix thread-safety of `GBinding`; see the updated documentation for
  `g_object_bind_property()` for full details — if your code uses `GBinding`
  across threads, you should re-check it against the latest documentation, use
  `g_binding_unbind()` rather than implicitly dropping the binding with your
  last `g_object_unref()` call, and use `g_binding_dup_source()`/`g_binding_dup_target()`
  instead of `g_binding_get_source()`/`g_binding_get_target()`
  (work by Sebastian Dröge) (!1745)

* Translation updates:

CVE-2021-27218 has been marked as High by NVD and has not been fixed in any other glib release - probably because this was during the end of their freeze cycle.

The vulnerability only affects 64-bit platforms. The description from NVD is:

An issue was discovered in GNOME GLib before 2.66.7 and 2.67.x before 2.67.4. If g_byte_array_new_take() was called with a buffer of 4GB or more on a 64-bit platform, the length would be truncated modulo 2**32, causing unintended length truncation.

Additional information can be found at

Unfortunately, this means that I must mark this ticket as at least elevated.

comment:13 by Douglas R. Reno, 3 years ago

I'm going to rediff the glib messages patch to reduce the amount of fuzz warnings.

comment:14 by Douglas R. Reno, 3 years ago

The rediffed glib patch went in at r4283 in the patches repo

comment:15 by Douglas R. Reno, 3 years ago


NOTE: This package now uses g_memdup2() as well instead of the vulnerable g_memdup().

Unfortunately still has problems. It appears to be timing out when contacting the notifications daemon. This might work in GNOME, but I don't have the environment up because updating certain packages is liable to cause it to crash. I'm currently in XFCE (and I'll probably move to Plasma before starting GTK3).

In the meantime, "mv -v tests/{,.nouse}" works to disable the failing test, so that's what I'll put in.

comment:25 by Douglas R. Reno, 3 years ago

Note: gedit will probably fail to build if tepl-5 is uninstalled before I update the book to gedit-40. That should happen this weekend, so the breakage shouldn't be around for long.

comment:26 by Douglas R. Reno, 3 years ago

Time for GTK+-4. I've uploaded the release notes to my webspace on higgs because they're 2,174 lines long! This almost reminds me of Qt, and there are a lot of new dependencies. It remains to be seen if it'll reduce the amount of packages in the book in the future.

In the meantime, I might have to add libcloudproviders, at least if Arch is anything to go by right now.

This will be a challenging addition. gtksourceview-5.0.0 will need to be added as well (listed as gtksourceview4 in this ticket to make the currency script happy), but my first priotity is getting it working.

Release notes:

GTK4 can be downloaded here:

comment:27 by Douglas R. Reno, 3 years ago

It looks like we can get away without libcloudproviders!

However, the tests are quite finnicky. I'm unable to get them to run properly in anything other than a Wayland session (and even then, 681 pass/30 fail). In an X session, 683 will fail, and 29 will pass.

I'll make a note that running the tests in a Wayland-based session are recommended.

On that note, gtk4-demo-application works great in XFCE, so it seems that it's only related to the tests.

comment:28 by Douglas R. Reno, 3 years ago

Here are my current notes for gtk4. I normally take these kind of notes for package additions. I did notice a few inaccuracies in the gtk3 page that I'll fix too. My next commit will have all of the things from this ticket in it.

One thing that is interesting to me is that there is now a multimedia subsystem in GTK4, similar to QtMultimedia, that lets application developers add audio/video/picture support into their programs easier. You need gst-plugins-bad and ffmpeg for that.

After this next build of gtk4 (I need -Dcolord=enabled for my printer), I'm going to swap into XFCE and check on the demo applications again, rebuild vte/gjs/webkitgtk to make sure no new errors occur, and then continue onto gtksourceview5.

Change external deps to internal on: vte, gjs, webkitgtk

comment:29 by Douglas R. Reno, 3 years ago

GJS picked up on GTK4 during compilation and seems to work well with it.

WebKitGTK+'s GTK4 implementation does not work as it needs a development version of libsoup (libsoup-2.99.x), which is API and ABI incompatible with libsoup2. The dependency definitely does exist though, so I will make sure that it gets changed to internal. The option to use GTK4 is -DUSE_GTK4=ON. I'm not sure it's worth adding a command explanation for this yet, but I will put a comment in the page.

VTE's dependency definitely does exist, but it's looking for gtk+-4.0, not gtk-4.0. I will change the dependency in the page though and I'll note that -Dgtk4=true is needed to build the GTK-4 widget in a comment. I'm sure that'll come in handy in the future, probably when gnome-terminal is ported over. I suspect the next version of VTE will fix that

On to gtksourceview5...

News in 4.99.0, 2021-02-12

GtkSourceView 4.99.0 is a beta release targeting GTK 4 and will eventually
become GtkSourceView 5.0.

It is the largest release of GtkSourceView in many releases and contains new
subsystems and performance improvements. More than 300 commits are part of this
release touching everything from syntax highlighting to a new snippet engine.

As GtkSourceView 4.99 moves to using PCRE2, it is possible that some language
definitions will need tweaking for differences between PCRE and PCRE2. So far,
very few changes were necessary within the GtkSourceView codebase but external
language specifications may require some tweaks. In particular, improper
escaping is the only incompatability seen thus far.

* Improvements when converting Pango styling to CSS
* Build system improvements
* GObject modernization
* A new completion engine has been added that reduces overhead and fits with
  GTK 4 lazy lists more closely. It is largely based on the code and design
  from GNOME Builder.
* GtkSourceGutterRenderers are now a GtkWidget allowing more interesting
  features to be implemented by applications.
* Undo management was moved into GTK 4 directly and is no longer part of
* Syntax highlighting has moved to PCRE2 and utilizes a JIT when available.
* GtkSourceBuffer has a new "cursor-moved" signal.
* A new font "Builder Blocks" from GNOME Builder has been bundled for use
  in the GtkSourceMap.
* To speed up gutter operations, a new GtkSourceLines abstraction has been
  added which allows fewer passes across the source buffer to extract features
  for display.
* A new snippet engine based originally upon GNOME Builder's but with a
  new snippet language based on XML similar to language-specs and
* A new "Assistant" abstraction which can be used for tooltips and eventually
  hover providers.
* Updates to go.lang, cmake.lang, meson.lang, csharp.lang.
* Translation updates


News in 5.0.0, 2021-03-19

GtkSourceView 5.0 is the first stable release of GtkSourceView targeting the
GTK 4 toolkit. It is the culmination of about a year of development.

Numerous new features were added that are not available in the 4.8 series of


 * A new GListModel-based completion engine with a refresh on autocompletion
   interface styling which was upstreamed from GNOME Builder.
 * Syntax languages are now implemented using PCRE2 instead of GRegex which
   also allowed for enabling the PCRE2 JIT for faster syntax highlighting.
 * GtkSourceView can now integrate with Sysprof to generate performance
   information. This may be helpful to application developers to help optimize
   application rendering on GTK 4.
 * Many internal components have become native GtkWidgets.
 * A new code-snippet engine with an XML-based language have been added which
   were upstreamed from GNOME Builder.
 * Support for interactive tooltips using GtkSourceHover which was upstreamed
   from GNOME Builder.
 * You can now write custom indenters using GtkSourceIndenter which was
   upstreamed from GNOME Builder.
 * The overview map now bundles a custom "BuilderBlocks" font which was
   upstreamed from GNOME Builder.
 * Undo management is now part of GTK 4.
 * Translation updates.
