 The core issue is mentioned in the comments to one of the bug above ( more
precisely): frama-c-gui depend on lablgtk, which is based on gtk2 and at
this point in time an upgrade to gtk3 seems very unlikely to happen. We
were already considering migrating to a newer, better maintained, UI
framework before this announcement, but this is not something that will be
done overnight (fortunately, the Debian release cycle is quite long too
😛). In the mean time, we will check whether it is possible to build the
GUI without gtksourceview and gnomecanvas (though it will probably mean
having a degraded mode, e.g. without syntax highlighting).

Finally please note that in any case the command-line interface of frama-c
(which is called frama-c-base in Debian if I remember correctly) is not
impacted by that.

Best regards,
E tutto per oggi, a la prossima volta
