    It appears I missed the press release about this, but when I decided to try gnome shell 3.4 for a short time today, I discovered it now has a dconf setting to disable dynamic workspaces and go back to having a fixed number of workspaces. Under "" there is now a "dynamic-workspaces" dconf key. I needed to reset the dconf key org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences num-workspaces back to 4 after using it.

    Unfortunately, I'm really not keen on how gtk3 programs are now faded when not the current focussed program. It's as if the designers are unable to imagine a scenario where you might want to have more than one program on screen at the same time. I'm not keen on the app menu either. Perhaps by gnome 3.8 someone will sneak in hidden settings to turn those off.
