Remove deprecated Glib and GTK+ symbols
Last modified: 2009-08-02 20:01:41 UTC
According to http://www.gnome.org/~fpeters/299.html Balsa uses deprecated symbols that will be removed for GTK+ 3.
See http://live.gnome.org/GnomeGoals/RemoveDeprecatedSymbols/GTK%2B and http://live.gnome.org/GnomeGoals/RemoveDeprecatedSymbols/Glib .

Thanks for looking over Balsa!

That was commented out--I've reworded the comment.
The replacement gtk_status_icon_set_tooltip_text is since 2.16, and Balsa requires only 2.14+, so we have conditional code that still uses the older api.
Those were all in dead code that's been removed in master.
So, can this bug marked as fixed? ;)
Balsa is always built with *_DISABLE_DEPRECATED, so when gtk_status_icon_set_tooltip is officially deprecated, the compatibility code will be dropped.
