GNOME 3.15.4 was released on Thursday night and is the latest pit stop on the road to the very exciting GNOME 3.16.

Many of the GNOME 3.15.4 features were previously covered on Phoronix like GTK+ now drawing all Mutter window decorations, Mutter handling input device configuration on Wayland, and the GNOME Shell doing VP9 screencasting.

Other GNOME 3.15.4 changes include Clutter using the GDK back-end, scrolling changes in GTK+, improved searching in GNOME Software, and the new GNOME-Taquin game. GNOME Taquin is a sliding-block puzzle game that's done in GTK3 and is premiering with the GNOME 3.16 release. Taquin can handle either 15 or 16 block puzzles.

More details on GNOME 3.15.4 can be found via Matthias Clasen's release announcement. GNOME 3.16.0 is due out in March.
