[Sugar-devel] AbiWord 3.next release plans

Hi Hubert,

I cloned the abiword repository (r35148) and built abiword with the
following options:

    ./configure --enable-collab-backend-sugar --enable-plugins="collab"

This triggers no compilation errors, only deprecation warnings about Gtk.
The gtk deprecations are from the zebra striping
(gtk_tree_view_set_rules_hint), which has been removed from gtk so it
doesn't want that hint any more.  (Removing the zebra striping needed like
a massive announcement, but it didn't seem to get any).  You can remove
those 2 calls to gtk_tree_view_set_rules_hint in the collab code and it
still runs fine.

Only the "service" backend depends on GNU tls.  I believe that this is the
abicollab.net backend, but I'm not sure.

This seems to indicate that the sugar backend is ok for now, and that's the
backed that bothers me.
