GtkCanvas is a straight port of the GNOME Canvas from the stable gnome-libs 1.2.4 back to gtk+. This widget behaves identically to the GnomeCanvas widget, with the same APIs, except the names are changed from gnome_canvas to gtk_canvas. Since the next version of gtk+ will drop GdkImLib and intgrate with gdk-pixbuf, it is expected that future versions of this widget will depend upon gtk+ only. It is intended that GtkCanvas will follow GnomeCanvas closely, merging new code whenever a stable release of the latter is made. Thus this is not really a fork but rather a "re-packaging" of the same code.
GtkGLMaterialDialogis a GTK+ dialog that can be used to edit 3D-object material properties. It is based on the material properties of OpenGL with diffuse, ambient, specular, emissive colors (RGBA), and a specular coefficient (shininess). The material is previewed by rendering a lit OpenGL sphere in a gtkglarea widget.
