GNOME 3.4: The web at your fingertips

The web at your fingertips (GNOME 3.4 banner)

One year ago, the release of GNOME 3.0 was laying solid foundations for the new design of our software. Fast forward to this week: our project is reaching the 3.4 milestone. It comes with a new flow of improvements for our users, and I believe it highlights our commitment to the GNOME 3 vision to offer a modern and innovative environment: revamped look of applications, the application menus, the many small annoyances we fixed, etc. But this is not all: the community is also preparing for the next level with behind the scenes work such as smooth scrolling and support for touch events.

Now that 3.4 is out, I know a lot of people are looking forward to the 3.6 release! Cool stuff is coming in the next six months, and there will an amazing opportunity before September to share what you believe will matter: GUADEC at the end of July!

So now that you're all done with the 3.4 release, it's time to go read again the GUADEC CfP and submit your awesome talk!

Oh, and I cannot avoid a mention about GNOME 3.4 in the openSUSE land :-) The openSUSE GNOME team quickly got 3.4.0 packaged: it was in GNOME:Factory on Wednesday already, and the late tarballs were integrated yesterday. All of this has been submitted to Factory so it will be in the next 12.2 milestone. And some people are starting to look at building GNOME 3.4 for openSUSE 12.1 too, if you prefer to stay on a stable distribution.
