GNOME-Shell 3.12.2 is out!

With every major GNOME Shell release, new bugs appear due to the big changes that come with new features and old unnoticed bugs resurface due to the more active user testing, or changes that now activate problematic parts. It is always important to release bug fixing versions for GNOME’s default Shell and the number of these may extend to three or even four versions.

For the stable 3.12 version we are already on the second bug fix release that brings important corrections on the way the Airplane Mode works, eliminates Shell crashes due to leftovers on the Search Providers and fixes in the Extensions module. Here is the list with the 7 issues fixed in 3.12.2 and the 9 bugs fixed in the previous 3.12.1:
