@ronnyek See this PR AvaloniaUI/Avalonia#620, it tracks progress of porting

@ronnyek mostly GTK#
Well, we can start porting with our win32/direct2d backends
But that's kinda pointless without *nix support
I had some ideas of implementing lightweight gtk bindings to replace GTK# dependency

But we'll need skia# to get .NET Core support first anyway
Since we'll need something to render
@danwalmsley Currently dispatcher get's initialized in a bit weird way, it wants to have IPlatformThreadingInterface registered by the time when static constructor runs

@kekekes, it would be handy if dispatcher.uithread returned null if no IPlatformThr... Had been registered too
That way I can decide if I need to dispatch or not based on if im running inside a ui app or not
@kekekes I don't suppose you know much about popup and what could be causing #706
@wieslawsoltes have you thought much about docking control recently?
I'm thinking to start looking at it again soon

BTW, our main issue with avalondock was configuring initial panel positions
Especially when we add new ones

The docking system Ive been working on slowly lets you easily create a layout with a graph, then those layouts can be saved into snapshots and persisted between runs or set as a default layout from there

yeah in my original wpf version of Avalon studio, I used Avalon dock
