Drop support for Ruby 1.8

Hi, all

I’d like to drop support for Ruby 1.8 on new packages(gdk3, gtk3,
gtksourceview3, vte3 and gvlc).
What do you think?

Thanks,


Masaaki A.

Hi Masaaki

I do not known any project implementing both ruby1.8 and gtk3 or gvlc
so no objection from me.

I would go as far as saying to drop 1.8 altogether, and put it into
maintenance mode only. So, yes, I’m all for dropping it for new
packages.

I tried compiling the latest ruby-gnome2 code last night but I ran into
problems with the gtk3 build. I’m on Fedora 15
(gtk3-devel-3.0.12-1.fc15), but this version of gtk3 doesn’t have the
font
chooser dialog stuff in it.

compiling rbgtkfontchooserdialog.c
rbgtkfontchooserdialog.c: In function ‘rg_initialize’:
rbgtkfontchooserdialog.c:39:5: warning: implicit declaration of function
‘gtk_font_chooser_dialog_new’ [-Wimplicit-function-declaration]
rbgtkfontchooserdialog.c:39:5: warning: nested extern declaration of
‘gtk_font_chooser_dialog_new’ [-Wnested-externs]
rbgtkfontchooserdialog.c:39:12: warning: assignment makes pointer from

rbgtkfontchooserdialog.c: In function ‘Init_gtk_fontchooserdialog’:

undeclared (first use in this function)
rbgtkfontchooserdialog.c:48:33: note: each undeclared identifier is
reported only once for each function it appears in
make[2]: *** [rbgtkfontchooserdialog.o] Error 1

Is this something we can enable/disable based on the version of GTK3
that
is installed? Or do I need to upgrade my system to be able to use the
new
stuff?

Ok. so I have seen many “standarizations” in the last few builds. What
should I focus on if I want to get gnomecavas back in the mix.

I’d like to drop support for Ruby 1.8 on new packages(gdk3, gtk3,

gtksourceview3, vte3 and gvlc).
What do you think?

I’d give that a thumbs up. I mean old school users like me can’t even take
advantage of things like gtk3.

I’d like to pull back gnomecanvas. I guess I will sign up for it. Its
just
that I run a ton of gnomecanvas stuff, and we are stuck with CentOS 5.7
and
RHEL 5.7. which will never have goocanvas.

Who do I need to please to get a Ruby-gnome2 developer hat on. I’ve been
trying over the last couple months to understand it. I’m now about ready
to
jump in and say “yes I will be the domo”
