This Week in GNOME is out with their newest issue to detail changes made by various GNOME components over the first few days of July.

First up, Key Rack 0.4 has been released. Key Rack 0.4 brings improvements from the Sovereign Tech Fund driven work around a overhauled UI, viewing all host keyrings, changing passwords of keyrings, and other improvements. Key Rack is ultimately working to replace GNOME's Seahorse.

Another notable highlight for the week is that WebKit can now be profiled using Sysprof on Linux, including the WebKitGTK code. Georges Stavracas notes that this will hopefully lead to more performance improvements for this web rendering code that is widely used.

The Phosh 0.40 Wayland shell for mobile devices was released with an optional dark style for mobile data quick toggles, suspend support from the lock screen, and other changes. Phosh is looking quite nice per their latest screenshots from This Week in GNOME:
