Final SoC-Status

So the summer of code has reached its hands-down phasis and few minutes before the deadline finally height-for-width support has landed:

Height for Width Support in GTK+

Proper support for rotated labels with ellipses also has been backported to GTK+:

Rotated text with ellipses backported.

Well, but end of Summer of Code doesn't mean end of hacking: Have to teach GtkHBox and GtkTable the size-for-allocation trick. The icon view could profit from exposing such information. Well, and finally the extended layout branch has to be merged into GTK+ trunk, which currently is feature frozen.

Guess this Summer of Code was quite some success for me: Implemented some useful features and finally managed to fully join the GNOME community.

Ahh, cool!

The height-for-width stuff looks to be what the same thing CSS calls an "intrinsic ratio", and which I have been waiting forever for Mozilla/Firefox to support:

I just discovered your work and ... kudos, that's really great news and work. That was really needed.
when is it going to be in GTK+?
