GNOME 3.6 is getting serious with Initial System Setup

Filed under
Software

GNOME 3.4.1 released a few days ago, but its progress didn’t stop. The releasing cycle for 3.6 has already begun. To be honest, I don’t think that 3.4 release was quite exciting, apart maybe from GTK 3.4 that brought a lot of new features.

Some of the designing plans didn’t make on time for 3.4 and they are postponed for 3.6. That affected bad the Web App (old Epiphany) that I am sure, it could be the next big thing on GNOME’s world. Yes, Web could be our Web-browsing default App, in the next year.

However another thing that pull my attention was what they call “Initial System Setup”, and there are plans to be included on 3.6.
