It’s coming

GNOME Summit went really well, and I had a great time. One thing that I was really heartened to see is that we’ve agreed on a GLib/dbus plan, and this will enable a number of cool things. First, dbus-glib is just not very good, and we’ve needed a better story. I hadn’t realized before just how much nicer GVariant can make doing DBus calls. But beyond that, having DBus underneath the GTK+ stack will better unlock things like GApplication which will in turn let us do nifty things like exporting GtkAction over the bus. If that’s still a bit abstract, look at say Stuart Langridge’s post on Linglish.
