GNOME Shell 3.7.9 (3.8 beta) Changelogs

This post was made with an older stylesheet


Shell 3.6.3.1 Release

Same time with Shell beta, the stable 3.6.3.1 also released that fixes one bug.

This recently appeared in master – hot plug notifications and the libnotify test-multiple-actions test don’t get displayed properly. You see the top half of a close button peeping up from the bottom of the screen, and that’s it.

  • Broken hot plug and multi-action notifications [#689295]

GNOME beta 3.8

Yes, major software houses like Blizzard, Adobe, Autodesk and others don’t support GNOME and other Linux Desktops. However with the software industry moving to the web, it would be okay for Windows/Mac users to switch to Open Source Desktops and they won’t miss a lot. In this part GNOME 3.8 does great, except two things.

The first is that GNOME lacks a mainstream distro, or if you prefer a “commercial” distro like Ubuntu. I am calling Ubuntu a commercial distro, as it serves commercial purposes for Canonical. Of course GNOME also serves commercial purposes for many companies and Canonical (and obviously RH) is also one of them.

The second issue of GNOME is the communication with other devices. One of the major reasons than Apple “sells” at crazy pace (although in stock market Apple goes crazy down!), is because they offer devices (phones, tablets, desktops- TVs) that “talk” each other as one single thing. Canonical tries to do the same with their new Phone/Tablet software. GNOME should invest more on this, if they want to succeed big time.

How to test it

Same days around 6months ago there was a GNOME 3.5.9 Live Image based on Fedora distro. I don’t see one for 3.7.9, and if you don’t want to install Ubuntu 13.04 to test it (or any other distro) you can wait for Fedora’s 19 daily builds, that hopefully will include it on the next few days.

What I dislike in GNOME 3.8

GNOME for one more release seems to hide their extension framework. This is totally a worldwide-first, not another software does this but GNOME.  First that doesn’t feel very nice towards to Extension Authors/GNOME Contributors, and secondly it significantly decreases the user experience of all the rest users.

classic379

One of the highlights of GNOME 3.8 is the new Classic Mode. As you can see this is basically a normal GNOME that comes with a bunch of Extensions. GNOME do strongly support extensions, but they still keep them hidden (intentionally or unintentionally?). However the complains are lots and most of GNOME users don’t even know that there is a extensions.gnome.org page (same goes also for help.gnome.org).

    I agree with you, Gnome should start supporting extensions and themes widely and wholeheartedly.

    Not even a circle ago (3.4) the main gnome-shell theme was so undocumented I had to use half-left’s theme to actually understand what css rule was made for what element. Thankfully at 3.6 it got really better (still not perfect but was better).

    A theme directory similar to the extensions.gnome.org should be made and some cross-version compatibility so themes from older versions don’t just go to the trashcan.

    With that said, I can’t wait for 3.8 to become stable so i can thoroughly test it!

      I think gnome kinda hide his theme feature because extension really can change Gnome-Shell.
      They don’t want people saying “this does not work” when the cause is an extension..
      I’m not sure what to think about it.
      Maybe there should be some “supported” extension that could be promoted byt the Gnome Team..

        The theme engine is still in development and not stable at all. This fact is actually documented.

    I love your jokes. xD

      Really? Thank you, I guess!

    Is GNOME Music making it into this release? It’d be a shame to have to wait another 6 months for what looks like a great app.

    • alex285

      I don’t think so, except if they ship it as testing. Similar in what happened with Clocks last release.

    Probably the first gnome-shell compatible theme

      Hey, are you the author?
      I was going to present it but it doesn’t work very good. For example the popup in AppsFolders.
      However is cool to be so early adopter. Thanks!
