    Phoronix: GNOME 3.31.4 Released As A Big Step Towards GNOME 3.32

    GNOME 3.31.4 is out today as their latest development snapshot towards this March's GNOME 3.32 desktop release. GNOME 3.31.4 comes with several exciting additions ranging from enhancing its default web browser to the GNOME Boxes virtualization component enabling 3D/OpenGL support with VirtIO-GPU...

    Any news on the new icon theme or the Gnome design refresh?

      Ironically the compositor saw a lot of updates but no release. Seems like distribution is moving from tags&tarballs to continuous deployment.

          Many new icons already there. You can check Fedora Rawhide for this.

            Funny thing, I'd be happy with GNOME as it is, if only it would be more responsive and without performance degradation over time. I don't give a damn about virtualization support, what language is used for rsvg or gnome "native" browser (last time I've used it was sometime around gnome 2).

              It would be really nice with GObject Introspection for .NET Core.

                The new GTK theme is a massive improvement, I've been using it on 3.30 and I no longer feel the need to install custom themes anymore.

                I think Fedora said they wanted it for 3.32, but considering the GNOME-Shell theme hasn't been updated yet I don't think it will make it in time as they don't match nicely.

                That icon theme though.....

                  Unfortunately, the major performance improvements that Canonical's Daniel van Vugt has been working on don't see a lot of attention. The changes aren't all perfect, but they're ready to go: there are a bunch of merge requests on the mutter and gnome-shell project, they largely work great and without any bugs, and they've been there for *months*.

                  It boggles my mind that the resident GNOME maintainers apparently don't really care: performance is THE most severe issue with GNOME at this point. The current set of patches result in a night-and-day difference, especially on Wayland.

                  I like GNOME, but if it weren't for these patches (I apply them manually), I'd have switched to a different DE.

                    Daniels patches cause quite a few regressions, but these problems seem to come from bad GNOME design decisions that were masked by the performance problems. Although the suggestion that a performance "fix" is somehow a feature is stupid.

                    I think they'll eventually get merged as some of them are.
