        Wow according to their release schedule this year there will be releases all the way up to GNOME 3.34.5 in march. So I'm guessing a lot of things will be backported, next release is 3.34.2 at the end of this month

                kmare The most interesting MRs are not even in yet. Callbacks just go reduced but they also got MRs for reducing paint areas and relayouts. This work could land before 3.35.2.
