Support for Gtk+ 3 in desktop applications

The past few weeks have been busy with adding, fixing and improving support for Gtk+ 3 [1] in the DeforaOS desktop [2]. While a few hiccups remain this and there, most of the applications are now fully functional with the new version of the popular Open Source toolkit.

A new round of releases will occur as soon as each application is ready. With this said, support for Gtk+ 2 is not dropped, down to version 2.4 or above as before. This challenge proved to be a hassle until libDesktop [3] was leveraged to help with this task; it has therefore become a dependency for almost every desktop project by now.
