GNOME 3.14 is now unmasked and stabilized. Enjoy!

This is a News item page, and you can comment using DISQUS at the bottom.

While GNOME 3.14 is not a huge leap forward in comparison to 3.12, it comes with a lot of changes under the hood such as:

  • a new animation when opening the Activities Overview
  • new transition animations for windows
  • new search providers for Clocks and Calculator (you can find times for cities and perform calculations)
  • system-wide multitouch gestures (for touchscreen devices only)
  • improvements to GTK
  • improved support for Wi-Fi hotspot
  • enhanced geolocation framework
  • network-based sharing
  • support for Wayland (for systemd systems only)

My patchset was also applied which (in part):

  • reintegrates Power Management Utilities (pm-utils) Support
  • restores Adwaita backgrounds from GNOME 3.10
  • reintegrates background transparency for GNOME Terminal

You can find the instructions for upgrading (and for cleaning out some unnecessary files if you were testing) at GNOME First Steps.
