    Phoronix: A Look At The Many Improvements & New Features In GNOME 3.32

    Barring any last minute delays, GNOME 3.32 is expected to ship today as the latest six-month update to this popular open-source desktop environment. GNOME 3.32 personally has me quite excited more so for the improvements -- and bug fixes -- over "new" features, but here is a look at some of what there is to get excited about with this latest update to the GNOME 3 desktop...

    It's good to see the effort to make the best DE even better. Looking forward to it, specially performance/ram optimizations, but I think I'm going to wait to 3.34 because I like to accumulate improvements so I can see them clearly.

    Good work, GNOME team!

      It must be masochistic to use the gnome3 desktop that is newer ready and bug free. This kind of a comment causes the Inquisition mode in gnome3 believers, see the following comments.

        Fix some bugs maybe? HiDPI scaling regularly breaks down, Windows suddenly are rendered at lowres and scaled up after screen blanking, Nautilus is extremely unreliable showing changed content of a directory (might be stuck at an old state), search is similarly broken (just run eg. a compilation in background).
        file operations copy/delete are abysmal slow and might break aswell, particularly with network shares (command-line never has these issues).

        Cant imagine what a horrible mess this must be at its core.

          Linux has a desktop now. Like a real desktop.

              I'll bite. "Believers" is the wrong word here. Software can exist regardless of whether you like it or not. Your choice of using the term "Believers" suggests that you view Gnome as some sort of faith. This makes me think that your unhealthy obsession with Linux is something you view as a religion. Do you have statues of Debian logos that you pray to at night?

                Don't see a single of that problems on my machine, but hey, file bugs and help them get solved? I often see problems like this in the issue tracker (GS/mutter) being very specific to the hardware/setup.
                I guess one problem could be the mono-culture of hardware of the devs and power users. Most of them use up-to-date high quality hardware, while people with shitty hardware are often those who are much less likely to be able to file issues or even fix them. I rarely see stability problems on lenovo/dell/hp (quality) systems, while on cheap throw-away systems I'm often suprised how shitty things can go (often problems with power management / bad firmware)

                  Fractional scaling support under Wayland only! Could you mention that at least once?

                    Gnome is definitely not for power users, if I had the spare time to fix up thing, I would not touch Gnome but use Enlightenment.

                    Issue persists in both home (i7-4770 + RX-570) aswell as Work (some Xenon + Nvidia Dell PC) with dual screens each, I rather guess that neither the devs nor the happy Gnome users do anything but open Firefox on a single screen.
