GNOME: GNOME 3.20 Released: Major New Features, Many Refinements

We are excited to announce the release of GNOME 3.20. This latest version of GNOME 3 is the result of six months of development and includes 28,933 changes, made by approximately 870 contributors.

3.20 has been named “Delhi” in recognition of this year’s GNOME.Asia organizing team. GNOME.Asia is an important annual GNOME event, and is only possible due to the hard work of local volunteers. This year it will be held in Delhi, India between the 21st and 24th of April.

Making the announcement, the Release Team’s Matthias Clasen thanked the GNOME community for the work that went into the release, saying “This six months’ effort wouldn’t have been possible without the whole GNOME community, made of contributors and friends from all around the world: developers, designers, documentation writers, usability and accessibility specialists, translators, maintainers, students, system administrators, companies, artists, testers and last, not least, users. GNOME would not exist without all of you.”

Highlights for 3.20 include:

  • OS upgrades can now be installed using Software
  • Wayland support has improved significantly, with kinetic scrolling, drag-and-drop, and middle-click paste
  • Keyboard shortcuts and gestures can be easily learned with new shortcut overlay windows
  • Privacy controls have been improved with per-application location access
  • Quick access to media controls directly from the shell
  • Searching in Files has been much improved
  • Builder can now build XDG-Apps, a new cross-distro framework for building and distributing desktop applications. These can also be installed directly from GNOME Software

You can find more information about these changes and much more in the release notes.

GNOME: GUADEC 2016 to happen from August 12–14 in Karlsruhe, Germany

We’re happy to announce that the 2016 edition of GUADEC will be held in Karlsruhe, Germany from August 12–14, at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, a world-renowned research and educational institution.

Karlsruhe is located in southtwest Germany near the Franco-German border and is nicknamed the “fan city” because its streets are built radially around the palace tower. This beautiful and historic city is also home to the two highest courts in Germany, and several of Germany’s intitutions of higher learning.

“We are proud to have GUADEC in Karlsruhe this year and look forward to welcoming the GNOME community in our beautiful city. With the Gulaschprogrammiernacht (GPN) we have a large hacker congress in the city and having GUADEC here will further strengthen the local open source community.” — Benjamin Berg, local organizer

Join us!

Do you have an idea or project you’d like to share with the community during this year’s GUADEC? Stay tuned. We’ll announce a call for participation soon.

If your company or organization would like to sponsor GUADEC, you can find information on sponsorship opportunities in our Sponsors page at GUADEC.org, or contact us at sponsors@guadec.org and we are happy to discuss it with you.

If you would like to join our team of volunteers to help organize future GUADECs, please subscribe to the GUADEC mailinglist. We would love to have you on board!
