Normally GNOME point releases aren't too worth mentioning over here, but with this morning's release of GNOME Mutter 3.22.2 it's a bit of a different story.

GNOME Mutter 3.22.2 is a worthwhile upgrade particularly if you are running on Wayland. Mutter 3.22.2 has several Wayland crash fixes (two separate bug reports_ plus has at least four bugs fixed around placement issues of windows/elements when running on Wayland. There is also a fix for popup grabs blocking the screen lock on Wayland. There is also a fix for two finger and edge scrolling under Wayland.

Some other Mutter 3.22.2 changes include a fix for the frame-buffer capture origin offset, mirror mode with stage views, improved pointer constraints, stack docks below other windows on full-screen monitors, and other non-Wayland bug-fixes.

More details on Mutter 3.22.2 via this morning's release announcement. GNOME 3.22.2 is planned for release this week and is the last planned large point release for the GNOME 3.22 series until GNOME 3.24 makes its debut in March.
