GNOME 3.8.2 was released this morning and it serves as the last bug-fix release in the GNOME 3.8 series. All work now is being focused on GNOME 3.10.

Frederic Peters made the GNOME 3.8.2 announcement. As usual for GNOME point releases, the changes consist just of fixes, documentation, and translation updates.

Peters concluded with, "We are now moving back deep into development territory, there will be no further coordinated 3.8 releases (individual module maintainers may still publish new stable tarballs); our next release will be 3.9.2, to be published at the end of the month."

GNOME 3.10 meanwhile will be released in late September and there will be GNOME 3.9.x development releases up to that point. This next release will improve Wayland support and has already changed around the GNOME Shell and Mutter.
