GTK2 dead, new branching model

The GTK2 version of RawTherapee has now reached the end of its life.

If you want to compile the GTK2 version, checkout the gtk2 branch.
If you want to compile the GTK3 version, checkout the dev branch.
If you want to compile the latest development version, checkout the dev branch.

You may still see the branches master and gtk3 if you clone the repository - ignore them, they are dead and will be deleted in the future.

So no branch called master anymore?

A bit off topic, but I would strongly suggest to consider following this git branching guidelines, which I find extremely reasonable…

I do not agree with all what is said there, however I really like the idea of the master that keeps track of the latest official release. Anyone cloning the default branch of the RT repository (assuming it is master) will get the latest official release. People who know what they are doing can clone other branches to get the various development versions.

So, instead of deleting master, you could make it point to the current RT5 release…

My 2cts.

@paperdigits correct. You will still see the master branch because we haven’t deleted it yet, but it is replaced by the gtk2 branch.

@Carmelo_DrRaw that is what we’re following, see Git branching scheme · Issue #3660 · Beep6581/RawTherapee · GitHub .

Somehow you made this post without a category, but I’ve fixed that.
