@ebassi @gnome I think that's precisely what distros will have to do for years to come.
I wonder whether the EOL was announced beforehand, I couldn't find anything so far. I hope it's not just this passing note in the GTK 4 announcement.
I remembered vaguely that there was a11y trouble in GTK land so I read up and found your presentation: https://gitlab.gnome.org/ebassi/guadec-2020/-/blob/main/accessibility/gtk-accessibility.md
Good to hear that you can work on that.
You wrote there that ATK was dropped, but what about the other applications that use it?
@murks @gnome We've been telling distributors that GTK2 was going to be EOL'd by the time GTK4 was released for the past three or so years, so it's not really an unexpected thing. We can't be expected to maintain 3 separate API series.
As for ATK: it's still used by GTK3, and underneath everyone on Linux uses AT-SPI, including GTK4; we just cut out the middlemen.
