Meson's dependency manager in action building GTK

One of the greatest things about creating software is seeing other people pick it up and run with it. Here is a great example of GTK's new development experience using Meson subprojects to automatically obtain dependencies.

It is easy to see how this makes it easier for newcomers to participate. There are no longer pages upon pages of instructions on how to set up a build environment and so on. All that is required is to clone one Git repo and start building. The build system will take care of all the rest.

The eventual goal is to be able to build the entire stack fully from scratch on any platform, even Windows with the Visual Studio compiler. Unfortunately there are still a few missing features but we'll get them added at some point.
