GNOME Project's Matthias Clasen sent us an email today, April 29, 2016, with information about the release of the first snapshot towards the upcoming GNOME 3.22 desktop environment for GNU/Linux operating systems.
Yes, we're talking about GNOME 3.21.1, whose launch was expected a couple of days ago, on April 27, 2016, as the GNOME app maintainers have been informed at the end of last week that the GNOME 3.21.1 unstable tarballs were due Monday, April 25. For those of you not in the loop, the development cycle of GNOME 3.22 happens under the 3.21 umbrella.
