The most exciting thing in GNOME 3.10 is that’s the last version till the highly anticipated GNOME 3.12. GNOME 3.12 (and not GNOME 4) will bring -among others- Wayland by default (or at least full working), a feature-completed Software App and Systemd (?) will manage User Sessions.
From Matthias Clasen via Desktop Devel.
with 3.10 getting wrapped up today, it is time to look ahead at the next cycle and start making plans for what we want to achieve. We’ve set up the usual page on the wiki to collect the plans:
And there is already some material there that has been carried over from previous releases:
– Integrate Facebook photos in GNOME Photos
– Git integration in the developer experience
– GNOME Software
– Systemd for the user session
– Colour Tinting in GNOME Shell
– Videos application implementation
– Complete the GNOME Wayland port
– Integrate Zimbra in GNOME
It would be good if the owners of these features could re-evaluate them and decide if they should really be on the list of things we want to achieve for 3.12. If not, then just remove the page.
But maybe there are other things that people are working on, or want to work on for 3.12 ? Now is the time to make your ideas known, and turn them into concrete plans.
Even if GNOME will get a more tight connection with Systemd, it won’t be a dependency, at least for the next release.
