GNOME 3.22 "Karlsruhe" Desktop Environment to Be Released on September 21, 2016

Filed under
GNOME

On March 22, 2016, GNOME developer Andre Klapper published a draft release schedule for the next major version of the GNOME desktop environment, version 3.22.

The release schedule has been posted a day before the launch of GNOME 3.20, which hit the streets on March 23, as expected, bringing dozens of goodies for fans of the open-source desktop environment for GNU/Linux operating systems. GNOME 3.20 will make its way into the software repositories of various distributions in the coming weeks or months.

Gnome 3.20

Gnome 3.20 is a nice release apart from some theme glitches due to the changes in gtk+ 3.20 but those will probably be eventually fixed.

I also saw some weird regressions in nautilus (one of which can end up in a nautilus crash) and reported them to their bug tracker. The nautilus developer confirmed them so I guess they will be fixed at some point as well.

Gnome-maps is much better before and slowly approaching feature parity with KDE's Marble.

Evolution should be ported to webkit2 in Gnome 3.22.

SUSE Leftovers

  • openSUSE Heroes meeting, day 2
    After a long, but exciting first day, we even managed to get some sleep before we started again and discussed the whole morning about our policies and other stuff that is now updated in the openSUSE wiki. After that, we went out for a nice lunch…
  • Installing Tumbleweed, November 2016
    The Tumbleweed system that I already have installed had desktops KDE, Gnome, XFCE and LXDE. But for recent intstalls (as with Leap 42.2), I have been going with KDE, Gnome, XFCE, LXQt, FVWM and MATE. So it seemed reasonable for the new Tumbleweed install to follow the same path. I also added Enlightenment for experimenting.

  • LibRetro's Vulkan PlayStation PSX Renderer Released
    A few days back I wrote about a Vulkan renderer for a PlayStation emulator being worked on and now the code to that Vulkan renderer is publicly available. For those wanting to relive some PlayStation One games this week or just looking for a new test case for Vulkan drivers, the Vulkan renderer for the LibRetro Beetle/Mednafen PSX emulator is now available, months after the LibRetro folks made a Vulkan renderer for the Nintendo 64 emulator.
  • Etnaviv DRM Updates Submitted For Linux 4.10
    The Etnaviv DRM-Next pull request is not nearly as exciting as MSM getting Adreno 500 series support, a lot of Intel changes, or the numerous AMDGPU changes, but it's not bad either for a community-driven, reverse-engineered DRM driver for the Vivante graphics cores.
  • Mesa 12.0.4 Being Prepped For Ubuntu 16.10/16.04
    Ubuntu is preparing Mesa 12.0.4 for Ubuntu Xenial and Yakkety users. It's not as great as Mesa 13, but at least there are some important fixes back-ported. Mesa 12.0.4 is exciting for dozens of bug fixes, including the work to offer better RadeonSI performance. But with Mesa 12.0.4 you don't have the RADV Vulkan driver, OpenGL 4.5, or the other exciting Mesa 13 work.
