Re: zim & GTK3


I would like to add that though Python2 is still supported its share is decreasing and it is encouraged to port applications to Python3. For example, from Ubuntu 16.04 release notes: "Python2 is not installed anymore by default on the server, cloud and the touch images, long live Python3!" And to migrate to Python3 a new framework should be used (pyGTK doesn't support it).

Long-time daily user of zim here - in both linux (home) and windows (work).

Over the last few years all my day-to-day apps have been slowly migrating to GTK3, and now pick up the gnome dark theme properly, and integrate to gnome-shell nicely. With Fedora 24, I noticed that the last few large apps finally moved to GTK3 (from firefox to libreoffice), and also recently I've noticed that GTK3 has been finally released for windows as well.

So hereby my request to the zim devs to consider migrating this awesome app (by far the most useful note-taking app ever) to GTK3 and bring it to the current-day linux desktop
