Description André Klapper 2009-06-14 18:02:25 UTC
According to gst-plugins-good contains
deprecated GTK+ symbols that must be removed for GNOME3.

See for the API reference and how to

See for a general

List of deprecated symbols:
"gtk_label_set, gtk_object_set, gtk_socket_steal, gtk_widget_set_usize"
Comment 1 Tim-Philipp Müller 2009-06-14 18:15:48 UTC
This is all in old code that merely exists in the git repository but isn't actually ever compiled ...

gst-plugins-good$ git grep -e gtk_label_set -e gtk_object_set -e gtk_socket_steal -e gtk_widget_set_usize
ext/dv/demo-play.c:  gtk_widget_set_usize (gtk_socket, 720, 576);
ext/dv/demo-play.c:  gtk_socket_steal (GTK_SOCKET (gtk_socket), draw);
ext/dv/demo-play.c:  gtk_object_set (GTK_OBJECT (appwindow), "allow_grow", TRUE, NULL);
ext/dv/demo-play.c:  gtk_object_set (GTK_OBJECT (appwindow), "allow_shrink", TRUE, NULL);
tests/old/examples/level/demo.c:  gtk_label_set (GTK_LABEL (elapsed), label);

Maybe we should remove all that unused, old code :) For everybody who needs it, it is still in the GIT history
Comment 3 Tim-Philipp Müller 2009-06-14 18:32:28 UTC
That was my plan as well:

    Remove a few old example apps from the 0.8 days
    Some have been replaced by newer ones, others are demoing elements that
    don't exist any longer (not in -good anyway), and others have not been
    touched in many years and it seem pointless to keep them around.
    Removing these files makes sure we don't have any code in our repository
    that uses Gtk+ symbols which are to be removed for GNOME3, and as such
    will make some script that greps for this kind of stuff give us a clean
    bill of code health. Fixes #585757.
