GNOME --
They missed Tuesday's GNOME 3.23.2 release, but available as of Wednesday evening is Mutter 3.23.2 and GNOME Shell 3.23.2.

Mutter 3.23.2 now stacks docks below other windows on full-screen windows, supports touchpad pinch gestures with more than two fingers, implements drawing tablet support on X11, fixes some Wine games starting minimized, fixed switching between scrolling modes on Wayland, support for EGLStream/EGLDevice, and other bug fixes and improvements. The EGLStream/EGLDevice support is what allows the mainline NVIDIA Wayland on GNOME support.

GNOME Shell 3.23.2 meanwhile implements Pad configuration on-screen display, improved network-related display, fixed full-screen transitions on Wayland, and other fixes and improvements.

GNOME 3.24 development sure is going along nicely ahead of its official debut in March.
