Some people are lazy, some people haven’t the time, some people don’t know how and some people just don’t really care to try Gnome 3.5.2, but I bet you all are curious to have a look at the new Gnome. So here it is, enjoy the tour :)
Gnome Shell’s new face will come in 3.5.3, that is a week from now. And of course we are going to present it first here! In this review I couldn’t test GOA (Gnome Online Accounts) and therefore Contacts, Documents, Empathy and Shell’s messaging. It was bugged but is ok, next week :)
Just to verify that noting has changed in Gnome Shell 352.. Yeap, categories are still here :)
The Nautilus has been renamed to Files and also acquired a Connect to Server Shortcut that will make many people happy!
Totem’s new name is Videos. Also got a nice new application menu. Don’t forget to check Cloud Videos Viewer!
Web has dozens of amazing new features for upcoming releases. These features didn’t make it on time for 3.5.2 :(
One of these features was the Jumplists. Not ready yet in any Gnome module :(
The new user menu. Online accounts got a new place inside settings and “Power Off” is by default here.
Not any change for the calendar. But.. But… Great things are planned to happen here.. Just wait!
I don’t even know why I printed that screen. Anyway is the power off menu of Gnome..
Pay attention at Pause Option on Application Menu. Gnome Developers are obviously irrelevant to Tetris (Quadrapassel – what a name!). Yoo devs, you don’t have time to pause it there ;)
Nothing really new here in first sight. However Wacom has got many new useful additions. What still bothers me is that they insist to don’t include Gnome-Tweak-Tool (Advanced Settings) in here. We wanna to change icons out of box ! Two years and still nothing… is too much…
Aww that is nice. An improved software installation manager. However it was broken :) Also Fedora updates Yum to a faster package manager.. Fedora+Gnome seems to grow well together. But we’ll have another post for it.
And a software logger to review our actions. Superb! I guess that there will be a roll-back option available too somewhere :)
GOA with just MS Live and Google. Did you know that GOA also supports Facebook, Twitter and Yahoo? They just haven’t enabled all cause of some licenses issues.
The new Gnome Fonts Viewer. It has an font installation button, but not a thumbnail export option. You have to print screen it? Dummy..
This is the Evolution 3.5.2. I don’t use Evo so I can’t really find any difference with the old one. But I do know that Evo will get a new webkit rendering mechanism instead of the old GtkHtml or something, I am not sure for this.
This is the Gnome Disk App. Clean and useful, nice one.
Wooow, the great contribution of Canonical to Gnome, a DConf Editor! Thank you Canonical, Open Source feels stronger on your shoulders :)
Finally an SQLite client. I found it in applications, and I just opened it from curiosity :)
Oh well I had 19 Gnome images. I wanted to get a round 20. It is summer time many of you enjoy the seas and if you want to enjoy them in the years to come..
