    New features, performance improvements and convergence improvements are all pretty well documented.

    The big effort on GnomeOS release engineering and Debian packaging is not well documented but equally important. Cheers release people!

        Looks like the GNOME team now focuses on what is really important. Great!

          Congratulations to the team, great job. I'm a Fedora user and only thing about 33 release is off is the default wallpaper, it's ugly as hell.

            Been using sway+Wayland for some time, after making my journey from KDE to Gnome to Xfce and Enlightenment.
            Sway rocks. Nothing else matters.

                Screensharing/screencasting sucks everywhere, specially in Wayland.

                I use Wayland. I'm saving money to get another GPU and an HDMI extender.

                What about Miracast? What about DIAL? What about Google Cast?
                MiracleCast doesn't work and it's unmaintained.

                  I love GNOME and think it is great! I also like this new release, and I think the wallpaper is great.

                  I would like Web (Epiphany), Videos (Totem) and Evince (PDF reader) to be sandboxed with Flatpak, seccomp, and all that good stuff, so I can can visit random websites, and open random movies, music and PDF documents without have to worry that it has to things it shouldn't.

                  I would like to have AV1, PDF, JPEG, H.264, etc decoders written in Rust so I can open random media files from random websites without have to worry about specially crafted media files exploiting security vulnerabilities in the decoder.

                  When I upgrade GNOME most of my extensions tend to break, like Dash-to-panel, Dash-to-dock, Desktop icons, etc.

                  On Windows 10 you have a calculator with support for plotting, you have a WinKey+G game bar that can record the screen, you have nice, convenient shortcuts such as WinKey+R (run), WinKey+E (file explorer), Ctrl+Alt+Del, etc.

                  I would like further improvements to Gitg, the graphical GTK client for Git, it's nice, and I like Git but Git is a bit difficult to use, so it is nice with a GUI, so I would like to see improvements to Gitg so it can be even better.

                    I was talking about Fedora not Gnome.
