    Phoronix: A Look At The Exciting Features/Improvements Of GNOME 3.22

    If all goes well, GNOME 3.22 will be officially released tomorrow, 21 September. Here is a recap of some of the new features and improvements made over this past six month development cycle plus some screenshots of the near-final desktop that will power the upcoming Fedora 25 Workstation.

    Some Gnome 3.22 modules are already in Debian Unstable. They will be promoted to Debian Testing during the week.

      There is one typo "working on multi-DPI renderingfor" I believe there should be a space after rendering.

      Very good update, this year will be the beginning of the death of X11 and it is really good since most of the issues like tearing will be fixed (would be even better if nvidia weren't so bitchy about not using GBM. In fact, from current situation nvidia drivers will work on nothing but X11 if they choose not to make their drivers use proper stack).

        I couldn't find the enter location button in Nautilus 3.21. Was it removed?

          Can it run Qt5 based application as wayland clients? Plasma 5.8 supports running GTK3 applications natively on Wayland.

            Ad blocking sounds like a VERY sane default to me...

              Plasma 5.8 doesnt even run on wayland at all. It doesnt support EGLStreams.

                I would be surprised if not, and even more if there wasn't a simple setting/environment variable for that.

                  I would assume Ctrl+L still works?

                    Not all is dandy though with some features missing out for GNOME 3.22 such as the GTK Scene Kit that now won't happen until GNOME 3.24 and another big letdown is the GNOME Control Center hasn't switched to its new user-inteface by default for this cycle. But hey, it's just features to look forward to in early 2017 with GNOME 3.24.
                    GNOME 4.0? Or GTK and GNOME will not share the same version number any more?
