GNOME Project Is Pleased To Announce The Immediate Availability of 3.13.2!

Javier Jardon announced today the release of GNOME 3.13.2. GNOME 3.13.2 is the second unstable series towards to 3.14 final release, scheduled for September 24, where the next release (3.13.3) is coming in June 23.

GNOME 3.13.2 Release

The second release of the GNOME 3.14 development cycle is here. See [1] for the new features that have been proposed for this cycle.

To compile GNOME 3.13.2, you can use the jhbuild [2] modulesets [3] (which use the exact tarball versions from the official release).

Note that as part of Wayland development, 3.13.2 temporarily depends on systemd. This is needed because Wayland support in GNOME depends on systemd, but before 3.14 is released Wayland support will be made optional.


The release notes that describe the changes between 3.13.1 and 3.13.2 are available. Go read them to learn what’s new in this release:

This release is a snapshot of early development code. Although it is buildable and usable, it is primarily intended for testing and hacking purposes. GNOME uses odd minor version numbers to indicate development status.

About Systemd and Wayland that are core deps so Shell and Mutter cannot be build on non-Systemd systems like BSDs, Jasper St. Pierre says:

I have made systemd optional in mutter:

This disables the build of our native backend based on KMS, but Wayland support is still there in the X11 nested backend. Wayland is still a hard-dependency, and currently Wayland hasn’t been ported to other systems yet. I am still planning on making Wayland optional at some point before the 3.14 release.

Our Wayland native implementation will not be portable to non-systemd systems, Linux or otherwise. The way I would port things is to port Weston to other systems first, and then add a wl_fullscreen_shell backend to mutter, which will allow us to run mutter nested under Weston.
