After two and a half years, and the help of a bunch of people we have managed to finish our migration to GTK+3 and Python 3! It honestly was a ton of work to get this done and it almost definitely wouldn’t have been completed without the help of Patrick Monnerat to not only get us to the other side of that but do so in a thoughtful and well-engineered way. Thanks Patrick!

While the move to GTK+3 and Python 3 was the main emphasis of this release, there were a ton of other small improvements and bug fixes that should hopefully provide a more stable and useful experience. Here is a short list:

  • Migrated to GTK+3, GTK+2 is no longer supported
  • Now support python 3
  • Improved the annotate window with colors and context-menu
  • Allow for setting a default commit message
  • Add support for Pluma text editor
  • Rename the nautilus-3 and thunar-gtk3 clients to nautilus and thunar, previous clients are removed
  • Pulled in nemo extension
  • Tons of bug fixes and minor improvements
  • See the commit log for more
