    Phoronix: The Latest GNOME Shell/Mutter Performance Work & X11/Wayland Separation

    GNOME 3.32 is shaping up to be a darn fine release especially with the performance improvements slated to be part of this six-month desktop environment update due out in March...

    Georges is a machine.

    Besides mutter/gnome-shell development he is also working on the control center revamp.

      They either lacked foresight or GNOME Shell was truly meant to be an eternal beta.

      Their plans for GNOME 4 (like decoupling mutter from the main gnome-shell process) are things they should have done from the start, even more so because now, under Wayland, it'd have something to keep the session afloat if the Shell crashed. Oh, and performance would (likely) be much better.

        angrypie The developers chose a different approach.

          144Hz Are you saying they chose a different approach for GNOME 4? What did they choose?

            The Gnome Control Center is getting redone again?

            I like the current layout. It's slick, except the background chooser is still something that's a chore to use.

            Edit: Nm, only the individual panels are being changed.

              haydn-j The developers kept working on the current version. Incremental improvements rather than big rewrites.

              I guess the professionals weren’t that impressed with all this forum copypasta about the need for a big rewrite. Lessons learned from Unity8.

                Good to see some of the performance improvements are finally getting merged. However the big ones are still in the queue, e.g. GPU-less picking, latency reduction, etc.

                  I already passed over, no more Gnome/Gtk3 (and Gtk4) applications in my PC, my home directory is worth multiple times the money that all the Gnome/Gtk3 (and Gtk4) developpers have in their bank account.
                  That said, Gnome3 (and maybe 4?) remains a programming exercise.
