    I really like GNOME (after installing the extensions Dash-to-panel and ArcMenu). It feels very polished.
    Let me recommend a couple more also, mostly optional, but I find improves usability:

    Clipboard Indicator
    Alt-Tab Switcher Delay Removal (removes a noticeably delay when hitting alt+tab or super+tab)
    Sound input & output device chooser (quickly change from the top right bar)
    Toggle mute on middle click (helpful for desktops, middle clicking Volume icon on top right will toggle mute)

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.
      Regarding the I/O optimizations, are you referring to this MR?
      https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome...52#note_733505
      I'm asking as I really hope it's going to get merged, but at the moment it doesn't look like it has yet.

      BTW, thank you for reporting about F32, it's definitely what I'm personally looking forward to

        !1052 is just a backport to 3.28, which is used by RHEL 7 and Ubuntu 18.04. It doesn't really matter if it gets merged or not, as there wont be any further releases for that branch and the distros need to cherry pick the commits any way (I guess both already ship with a bunch of fixes on top of the upstream 3.28 branch).

        But yes, I'm referring to the corresponding changes on the master branch, which all can be found in 3.36

          Thank you so much, I didn't realize it was just the backport for 3.28! It makes much more sense now, and happy to know that it will actually work better under I/O pressure.

            For those of you running Arch Linux, GNOME 3.36 has been released into the "stable" repository. However, I ran into a bug as described in my tweet:
            https://twitter.com/GraysonPeddie/st...19738631356422

            For what it's worth, I think it's more of a DPI scaling bug, as I only have one monitor and an NVIDIA GTX 960. I don't know if the bug affects AMD or Intel graphics. I know everyone in the Arch Linux community who runs a GNOME desktop must be very excited for trying out GNOME 3.36, but I would like to advise anyone upgrading to the latest version, so do hold off on using "pacman -Syu" to upgrade your system.

            I will have to do some video editing in my desktop to stitch my videos together before I file a bug in the GitLab Mutter repository.

              Arch devs inventing time travel (seeing that the GNOME 3.36.0 release is actually due on March 11)..

                Yeah, there is some heavy, heavy development left to do before 3.36.0 is ready for release. /s

                  Lets hope that we will be able to test newer version testing packages in ubuntu 20.20 in comming weeks
                  I am testing 3.35.91 from 2020-02-28 09:53
                  on ARM device (odroid C2) and I don't see mouse cursor
                  so I am looking forward for fixed version

                    Funny thing, I prefer the OOTB experience of Gnome 3.35.91+Fedora 32 10x better than 3.34+Fedora 31 (Silverblue versions). Only reason I'm on 31 is the current plugin support on 3.36 is abysmal. Gnome, IMHO, needs a few plugins so it's more convenient and less piss-me-off-ish. I'd be on the newer version if it weren't for that.

                      I know I'm happy when the mouse disappears
