-Considering the effort it would that take replace all GtkAction/​GtkUiManager related code with [[https://​wiki.gnome.org/​HowDoI/​GAction|GAction]]/​GtkBuilder/​[[https://​wiki.gnome.org/​HowDoI/​GMenu|GMenu]],​ and realising this is [[https://​wiki.gnome.org/​Projects/​GTK+/​Menus#​Comments|not a straightforward task]], we decided to keep these deprecated widget internally and deal with them by the time of the GTK4 port. Based on [[https://​github.com/​linuxmint/​nemo/​tree/​master/​libnemo-extension|Nemo'​s approach]], the **ThunarxMenuItem** and **ThunarxMenu** classes were designed as drop-in replacements for GtkAction yielded by providers, hence updating plugins should be an easy task.+Considering the effort it would that take replace all GtkAction/​GtkUiManager related code with [[https://​wiki.gnome.org/​HowDoI/​GAction|GAction]]/​GtkBuilder/​[[https://​wiki.gnome.org/​HowDoI/​GMenu|GMenu]],​ and realising this is [[https://​wiki.gnome.org/​Projects/​GTK/​Menus#​Comments|not a straightforward task]], we decided to keep these deprecated widget internally and deal with them by the time of the GTK4 port.
