    How comes this gnome 3 excitement recently? In its early day this site was more than critical w.r.t to gnome 3.

    Gnome 3 still sucks. But I guess the fact that it's the only DE that can be useful on high dpi changes the game.

      I'm looking for Gnome to finally have first-class Wayland support, thus not interested in 3.12 at all, rather in 3.14.

        Meanwhile in debian testing, maybe we'll see 3.10 in full before the end of the year !

          Yeah, it sucks, but others suck more. XFCE is probably the only sane one, but it seems to be dead...

                  If you look closely there are some packages marked with f20 so... .

                    In Sid there are some packages from 3.12 and they coming more now (but some goes first in experimental of course)... but for testing who knows that needs to be in good shape and tested first

                    So you can try Debian sid+experimental right now if you want to see most parts of Gnome 3.12 .

                      Fedora 20 has improved font rendering by default compared to Fedora 19. On other distros you'd simply install infinality freetype patches or use freetype2-ubuntu.

                        I've been dabbling with gnome a little bit myself and I personally really like it. Some of these changes seem really nice. I don't think i'd ever use it for my main PC (too many restrictions), but it's still a great platform. People seem to hate it for the same reason they hate Windows 8 - the name implies you're getting a similar product to the predecessor, but it functions different enough that it angers people who can't handle change. Also, gnome is a lot better for touchscreens. Note that I'm primarily a KDE and XFCE user.

                          I'm generally a bigger fan of gnome shell than the average linux user but in this case I was actually surprised by how many impovements had gone under the radar only to pop up in the release notes.

                          Pardon the cliche but this is comfortably the best gnome release in a while.

                            At this point, GNOME, KDE and Unity are all very usable and quite good to me.

                              Does anyone have any idea when GNOME 3.12 might be released for Arch Linux?

                              Oh, I can't wait...
