    3.16.0 was first stable release.

      Come on Debian

      Let's hope Debian pulls a complete GNOME 3.16.1 seeing as they didn't remotely pull a complete 3.14 [now 3.14.4], nor a 3.12 or a 3.10.

      Even this listing is not complete: https://www.0d.be/debian/debian-gnome-3.16-status.html

        What do you mean by not complete pull? Mix of different versions?
        With API breakeage here and there with every major version it just doesn't make any sense.

          The only problem I was having was awful font rendering in GDM. Hopefully that's fixed, I'll know soon.

            For the GDM fonts became fixed you have to force GDM to use Xorg instead of Wayland (default for open-source drivers in 3.16):

            edit /etc/gdm/custom.conf and uncomment the line that says "WaylandEnable=false", my file is like this:
            "
            # GDM configuration storage

            [daemon]
            # Uncoment the line below to force the login screen to use Xorg
            WaylandEnable=false
            "

            On Arch, GDM 3.16.0 was not reading this file, now with 3.16.1 it does!

              I'm about to migrate (back) to Arch/Gnome from Ubuntu. I would like to use Wayland instead of X. How does it work?

                The base configuration of apps are not complete. Hell, Gweather as a stand alone has yet to see the light of day. Gnome Books is a new app not even listed. There are more. The fact is that during the entire cycle between 3.14 - 3.16 or 3.12 - 3.14 there has yet to be one release of all the apps [available on other distros] to be present on Debian.

                Yet, KDE and Haskell is constantly spewing out updates in Debian.

                Right now, Debian is a log jam of KDE.

                  Use the open source drivers and it should default to Wayland instead of Xorg.

                    Yes, it's an Intel Haswell, there are only open source drivers as far as I know.
