One of the GNOME 3.12 features not yet talked about on Phoronix is the new gnome-initial-setup for easy first-run configuration options of the GNOME desktop.

Red Hat's Matthias Clasen has written a new blog post talking about the brand new GNOME Initial Setup experience and posted a number of screenshots showing off this GNOME 3.12 feature.

The gnome-initial-setup work received a design overhaul, is much more uniform and polished, and overall is a smoother experience.

If you're interested in seeing what GNOME 3.12's initial setup experience looks like, stop by Clasen's GNOME blog.

Other GNOME 3.12 features include HiDPI support, improved Wayland support, a redesign to Gedit, and much more.
