#591 Port to GTK3


Please port Geany to GTK3 for new versions, so that we can benefit from GTK3 themes and features on the latest operating systems. I am currently using Geany 0.20 on Ubuntu 11.10 amd64. I have also used Geany 0.21 on Fedora 16 x86_64.

    Out of curiosity, what features, besides themes, are you missing as a result of Geany not supporting GTK+ 3?

    I'd really like Gtk 3 support, consistency, the theme, like people have referred, but also because Gtk 3 will help you add new Gtk features.

    We may add support for Gtk 3 but using Gtk 3-only features is not that useful ATM, because we want to support systems with Gtk 2 for a while longer, including adding new features. IIUC Gtk 2.24 is the latest stable release for Windows binaries:

    So Gtk 3-only is not really even an option yet on Windows.

    I really miss the smooth-scrolling that was introduced in GTK 3.4. GEdit is using it, and touchpad scrolling is smooth, not jumping 5 lines like Geany. Except for this feature, I much prefer Geany.

    I really miss the smooth-scrolling that was added in GTK 3.4. GEdit uses it, and touchpad scrolling is very smooth, doesn't jump by 5 lines like Geany does. This feature has made me want to use GEdit sometimes, although Geany is a much better editor overall.
