    Wayland support is awesome!
    Maps, Photos, Notes, that's alright.
    Header bars sucks.

      How do these things behave under DEs with a traditional taskbar (Gnome Classic, Xfce,). Looks like apps with them cannot be minimized.

        I assume that under a desktop with a taskbar, you'd just minimise them via the taskbar....

          That'd be totally retarded. Anyone who can confirm this?

            No, but it's how any other application with client-side-decorations works, regardless of the OS. The application may or may not provide the full set of windowing buttons, but the functionality is still available from the desktop itself.

              To each their own. I welcome the Header bars.

                And Debian still has 3.4 (and a very b0rked 3.8 in experimental)...

                  I'm waiting for update on Archlinux. I hope they fixed gnome-shell huge memory leaks...

                    And Debian will keep 3.4 in their stable version. If you don't understand that you don't understand Debian.

                      I'm using unstable, not stable. And gnome-shell 3.8 is only available in experimental http://www.0d.be/debian/debian-gnome-3.8-status.html

                      The reason is, maintainers have been having issues with various library transitions for months - ATM with evolution-data-server: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgre...oth.debian.org

                        I really dislike the new integrated system status because it increased the number of clicks required for almost all operations - worst is connecting to a WiFi network which now requires 5 clicks all over the screen (up from 2 in a corner). Bluetooth is puzzlingly only displayed when a device is connected, so you have to take the long path through settings to change visibility, add a new device, or even send files (!!). Empathy status cannot be changed from gnome-shell anymore, but Empathy still runs in the background when you close it. And so on..

                        They also removed the option to have (generic) icons in menus and on buttons. How is that a usability improvement?!?!

                        Photos, Documents, and (to some extent) Music still display their respective files as massive jumbles.

                        Maps is nice, but, again, the devs made some really weird "usability" choices. After you search for something, the map pans to the selected POI. The closer the POI is to your current view, the longer it takes - a one-block pan takes 11 seconds and is uninterruptible. To top it all of, the map zooms out a few levels when it's done panning .

                        Header bars are nice, but you now need 2 clicks to minimize the window. The new annimations and general polish are nice too.

                          So why do you complain about the version in stable?
