GNOME 3.10 is Here

Filed under
Software

In a post to the GNOME Announce mailing list just a few minutes ago, Matthias Clasen announced the release of GNOME 3.10. It was almost a month ago we were looking forward to the release with some of the upcoming highlights. It seems most of what was introduced then made it into the final release, with perhaps some surprises as well.

Probably the most significant to outsiders looking in is the experimental support for Wayland, "which allows GNOME as well as GNOME applications to be run using Wayland." The announcement said, "This is an important milestone on the road to full Wayland adoption, and will let developers test their software with Wayland." Bastien Nocera posted a screenshot of GNOME under Wayland using multi-screens, one of which is a television set.
