GNOME 3.28 Beta Is Next Week Marking The Feature/UI Freeze
GNOME 3.27.90 components are due by end of day Monday for making the beta release. At that time it also marks a lock on the API/ABI, user-interface and feature freeze, string change announcement period, and the beginning of assembling the release notes.
The GNOME Release Team has sent out a friendly reminder to get developers prepared.
A lot of changes have come for GNOME 3.28 this cycle from Wayland improvements, GNOME Builder still receiving a lot of attention, Thunderbolt integration, more packages being ported to Meson, Epiphany becoming more viable, etc. As the GNOME 3.28 release approaches next month, you can expect our usual review/roundup and more on Phoronix.
The GNOME 3.27.90 beta release is expected for 7 February, the release candidate will be on 7 March, and the stable GNOME 3.28.0 debut is penciled in right now for 14 March.
