    i would even wait for Gnomes-Hell 44. plenty of extensions just will take time to port it all over to 40

    Ubuntu 21.10 comes with GNOME Shell 40 but many other applications are still at version 3.38.

    Makes sense with 21.10 being out only a month later, and you never know what a Gnome release will break, system or extension-wise.
    One month to patch things up, while being in UI and feature freeze, that's not realistic.

    41 is rather a small update, with most things trickled down to 40 anyways. 42 next april should be a lot more interesting, lets see if Canonical is in sync again until then.

    Great to hear! Hopefully this further entices extension developers to port their still-3.38 extensions to 40.

    Phoronix: Ubuntu 21.10 Likely Sticking To The GNOME 40 Desktop

    While Ubuntu normally ships with the very latest GNOME desktop version issued just before release time, with Ubuntu 21.04 they stuck to GNOME 3.38 rather than punting early to GNOME 40. In the Ubuntu 21.10 development packages they since migrated to GNOME 40 but now it looks like they will be sticking to that and not pulling ahead to the near-final GNOME 41...
