GTK had a nice ecosystem of desktops, including GNOME, XFCE, Mate, and Cinnamon.
GTK development has been very active. This article is just one sign of that activity. Others include new widgets, more Wayland integration, better documentation, closer bundling of GLADE, better integration with other operating systems, a new canvas from the makers of Clutter, etc. It's actually a rather exciting time to be working on/using GTK.
Qt is nice. So is GTK. I really don't understand all the energy here devoted to killing GTK. Developers enjoy developing it. Users enjoy using it. Yay for them. Why attack their preferences? Do you think that somehow the attack will make Qt better?
