Does not work

  • Folderview uses too bright colors for row backgrounds (alternating light gray and even lighter gray).
  • Quicksearch sometimes doesn't display the search type combobox and information button.
  • Foldersel dialog doesn't show alternating colors in the folder list.
  • Fancy doesn't work, hangs indefinitely in webkit_web_view_new().
  • Vcalendar week/month views do not work, sometimes even crashes the whole program.
  • PDFviewer crashes the whole program on opening (some?) PDFs from the textview.

Works, but is ugly

  • GtkSpinButton is too wide with the -/+ buttons being large and next to each other, instead of small and one above another like in GTK2.

Deprecated API

  • GtkBox -> GtkGrid
  • GtkUIManager is deprecated in GTK3, to be removed in GTK4
