Do you do a lot of gtk GUI development? How do avoid the grind of edit-compile-test? Ned

The reason this is not getting a lot of attention is the same reason any one GUI project isn't getting a lot of attention, everyone has their own desire for which toolkit to build from and everyone is busy. On top of that GtkD exists, while it currently uses an older version of Gtk it is there and will likely move to Gtk 3.0 when the author has some more time. The benefits of 'GObject Introspection' are of no consequence since it already works without them. I do not speak for the author or his plans, but at this time moving it up to 3.0 is just more work and time the author doesn't have.

gtk2 seems to be not an older version, but current version, gtk3 being just a plan.

Actually GTK+3.0 is the current stable release and the 2.2* series is
in maintenance mode. I'd love to see GtkD update to the 3 series soon--
currently using the 2.6 version.

Indeed, lol, I was confused by the windows section which knows nothing about 3.0 version.
