    Phoronix: GNOME Shell & Mutter Reach Their 3.30.1 Milestone

    Released at the end of September was GNOME 3.30.1 as the first and only point release collection to the GNOME 3.30 desktop environment feature update that debuted earlier in February. Finally out today are the v3.30.1 updates for Mutter and the GNOME Shell...

    This wasn't a good release for gnome-shell.
    I found it really strange that when Gnome 3.30.1 released, gnome-shell wasn't ready, and they were recommending distros manually add 12 patches. Why didn't they just release those patches as gnome-shell 3.30.1, and release whatever this is as 3.30.1.1 or something. What a mess.
    Gnome-shell released with a LOT of bugs. More than I can remember in recent releases. I thought with time based releases issues like these should just not get shipped, and should wait for 3.32.

      But the extensions still run in the same process. Those can cause weird stalls.

              to be fair it uses ~900mb, also i have a ton of extensions and i use nemo as my file and desktop icon manager, so vanilla gnome probably uses less ram, also this release indeed uses less ram (specially after some use time) and is faster than before

                Runs fine on an old 2GB system I rescued from a previous employer. Maybe you're opening too many porn tabs?

                    no memory problems here. I use lightdm instead of gdm, gnome-shell with animations off. Before swithching to lightdm there were always ~500-600 MB used. imgur.com/a/jEm8Bt3
