First page of comments not exactly positive. Makes sense ....

As a long term strategy, Lazarus may well be better off making out GTK3 did not exist and targeting GTK4 eventually. How knows, maybe the Gnome developers, while developing GTK4 will realise that they need to take users with them rather than decreeing from afar exactly what users want ?

Lazarus 2, Linux (and reluctantly Win10, OSX)

"This week, we released GTK 3.96.0. Again, it has been a while since the last release, so it is worth summarizing whats new in this release. There is really too much here to cover it all, so this post will only highlight the most important changes.
This release is another milestone on our way towards GTK 4. And while there are still some unfinished things, this release is much closer to we hope to achieve with GTK 4."

"The GTK3-ported Xfce 4.14 might see its long-awaited official release in the near future. In preparing for a hopeful August debut, the Xfce 4.14 pre-release is now available.
It's been four years since the release of Xfce 4.12 and in addition to the GTK3 tool-kit re-tooling there has been a lot of UI improvements, vblank support added, colord integration, and many other feature additions."
