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

This release brings significant improvements to many of our core
KDE Plasma 5.6 Video
Tuesday, 22 March 2016. Today KDE releases a feature-packed new version of its desktop user interface, Plasma 5.6.
This release of Plasma brings many improvements to the task manager, KRunner, activities, and Wayland support as well as a much more refined look and feel.
Slicker Plasma Theme
The default Plasma theme, Breeze, now follows the application color scheme allowing for a more personalized experience. A new ‘Breeze Light’ together with ‘Breeze Dark’ theme can be used to bring back the previous behavior. Additionally, tooltip animations have become more subtle.
Supercharged Task Manager
Multitasking has just become easier. The much improved task manager in Plasma 5.6 now displays progress of tasks, such as downloading or copying files.
Moreover, hovering a music or video player shows beautiful album art and media controls, so you never have to leave the application you’re currently working with. Our media controller applet that shows up during playback also received some updates, notably support for multiple players running simultaneously.
Not only did we improve interacting with running applications, starting applications gets in your way less, too. Using Jump Lists you can launch an application and jump, hence the name, to a specific task right away. This feature is also present in the application launchers.
There are many refinements to the overall visuals of Plasma in this release. KRunner gained support for drag and drop and lost separator lines to look smoother while icons on the desktop traded the solid label background for a chic drop shadow. Users that place a folder applet in their panel can enjoy improved drag and drop, support for the back button on a mouse as well as choosing between list and icon view. On the more technical side, many small fixes to hi-dpi scaling have found their way into this release.
Another feature returns from the old days, the weather widget.
On the road to Wayland
With Plasma 5.5 for the first time we shipped a Wayland session for you to try out. While we still do not recommend using Wayland as a daily driver, we’ve made some significant advances:
Tech Preview System Integration Themes
We are trailing a tech preview of Breeze themes for Plymouth and Grub, so Plasma can give you a complete system experience from the moment you turn your computer on.
Also previewed in simple systemtray, an experimental systemtray replacement. Plasma Media Center remains in tech preview but work is ongoing for Plasma 5.7.
