    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.
    IMHO it wasn't a bad release. 3.28 was absolutely terrible, really unusable at all (disclaimer: I'm only talking about the experience on my laptop, with Ubuntu 18.04) and 3.30 fixed basically all the critical problems. Sure, there are still issues, the principle of running extensions in the main thread is still broken by design, but compared to the previous cycle, it's night and day. Speaking again in terms of the Ubuntu experience, the upcoming 18.10 is well on its way to Making Ubuntu Great Again as some would say, and it's in large part thanks to Gnome Shell 3.30.

    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

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

    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

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