    Best. Release. Ever.

      Video playback performance under Wayland is bad (Nouveau driver with VLC player). Mpv displays strange boxed video. Unusable in this state as daily driver, X11 is still a must have.

        MPV is broken at upstream. Root cause is attitude problems so the fixes might be by downstream or not at all.

        Totem is getting some QA love by upstream and Ubuntu so there is still hope.

          With respect to GJS, the update is quite nice in this release.

          Gnome 3.22 shipped with MozJS 24, so roughly ~3 year-old Javascript.
          Gnome 3.24 shipped with MozJS 38, so roughly ~2 year-old Javascript

          But now GNOME 3.26 ships MozJS 52, which is the current version upstream. This allows for better debugging and support (and features obviously).

            Ah crap. It's the same style of ugly configuration dialog Cinnamon uses. Looks like we're ready for that time warp back to 1989.

              Yeah, this will compete with the mutter performance improvements as coolest under-the-hood change.

                I feel like one more screenshot is needed to present awesome new features.

                  Yeah. Megasync, mpv and others need to adapt to the Standard Design. No biggie, such problems can be fixed upstream or downstream.
