Hi,

  I am a fun of python and gtk, I want to port gobject-introspection
to windows, the current manul update VS project make upstream a little
hard.

  Will gobect-introspection migrate to a modern and cross platform
friendly solution like cmake or meason in the near future?


If one considers "cross platform" to include MSYS2, which provides Linux-like build tools but (unlike Cygwin) produces native Win32/64 binaries, then the current system already qualifies. MSVC is not the only game in town.

Additionally, it's likely such move in gobject-introspection will depend on GLib project moving. On Meson side, the general long-term idea, is that for project that are not likely to move (or not soon), we'd be populating the wrapdb, a storage for build scripts to allow the dependencies to be built under MSVC, hence enable usable of MS debugger and other specific tools.
