Description Fabian Deutsch 2011-09-16 08:40:39 UTC
I just saw that gtk3 was updated to 3.1.90.
It would be nice if the gdk broadway backend could be enabled.

Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2011-10-24 23:38:41 UTC
Broadway is still very much an experimental backend.
At the very least, https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=656521 needs to be addressed before we can think about enabling it.

Comment 4 Fabian Deutsch 2011-10-29 16:14:19 UTC
Yes, maybe it was a bit early to request this.

Comment 5 Kazimieras Vaina 2012-03-05 11:16:11 UTC
The https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=656521 appears to be fixed already.

Comment 6 Gilboa Davara 2012-11-14 14:31:39 UTC
Any updates? As reported 656521 appears to be fixed.
Rebuilt gtk3 w/ broadway works just fine under Fedora 17 x86_64 / Firefox 16.0.2.

Comment 7 Fedora End Of Life 2013-01-16 15:22:12 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 16 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 16. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '16'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 16's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 16 is end of life. If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on 
"Clone This Bug" and open it against that version of Fedora.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:

The broadband backend is still not present in F18. Is there any plan to include it?
