Package: guitarix
Severity: serious

Hi,

guitarix depends on libwebkitgtk-1.0-0, which is deprecated in
favor of libwebkit2gtk-4.0-37 (provided in Debian by webkit2gtk).
guitarix should be ported to the new webkitgtk version so we can
remove the old, unmaintained one.

Please try to do soon as we're going to try to remove the old webkitgtk soon.

I am filing this bug as "serious" since the old webkitgtk will not be
available in the next major stable release of Debian (codenamed
"buster").

If you have any question don't hesitate to ask.

On behalf of the Debian WebKit Maintainers,
Jeremy Bicha

No, sorry. gtk3 has stabilized now with version 3.22.* So it's a great
time to upgrade your app. gtk3 natively supports Hi-DPI and GNOME on
Wayland.

Thanks, a pity.
I don't think that gtk2 will be skipped for the next stable release.
Here are no plans to upgrade to gtk3 at any time soon.
But webkit is a optional dependency. If webkit isn't found,
or disabled by configure, this feature will simple be disabled.

Hi


So I've now removed webkit from guitarix.

Next release will come without webkit, but a new online preset fetcher
(Gio::File) and menu.


regards
