    GNOME Shell dates to be off by 1900 years
    I do have to say that is quite a last minute fix. I can only imagine the conversation:

    QA: Hey we seem to have a bug it says the year is 120?

    Developer: Quae est difficultas?

        3.36.0 is nice but 3.36.1 or 3.36.2 is usually what we see in Ubuntu and Fedora.

        Speaking about GNOME stable releases there’s some changes not widely communicated. More micro releases are expected from Redhat. Basically they will try to cover an extended time period. This is of course optional but meritocracy always wins so this could become wider policy. Redhat also plans to backport some fixes to old, officially unsupported versions.

        Fedora also decided to refocus QA and testing efforts on their flagship desktop.

        Changes like these raises new questions like “Is Fedora secretly planning to slightly extend support duration?”

            Just switched to Fedora 32 and the combination of all the improvements seem to have made quite a difference concerning resource usage: the fan of my machine mostly doesn't spin up any more when doing lightweight office stuff and there are way less situation where I can perceive frame drops (e.g. when opening the GS overview). Finally, the IO optimizations seem to pay of quite a bit: I do not see any multiple frame stuttering any more when compiling Firefox - the shell keeps responsive even under hight load.

            So overall this appears to be a great step for the Shell to get out of the way and simply doing it's job in a efficient way.

              I really like GNOME (after installing the extensions Dash-to-panel and ArcMenu). It feels very polished.

                    Too bad there's no way to get it for Fedora 31 or Ubuntu 19.10. If Fedora 32 is stable I'll probably give it a try.
