[edit] GNOME 3.10

[edit] Summary

Update GNOME to the latest upstream release

[edit] Owner

[edit] Current status

GNOME 3.9.90 (upstream beta for 3.10) has been built and should be available in the F20 branch.

[edit] Detailed Description

The highlights of GNOME 3.10 include

  • A new maps applications: gnome-maps
  • A new music application: gnome-music
  • A revamped system status menu
  • Flickr support in gnome-photos
  • Zimbra support in evolution

Initial support running gnome-shell as a Wayland compositor is also a goal for 3.10, together with improved touch support and supported for scaled output on high-dpi displays.

For detailed descriptions and designs of the features that are being worked on for GNOME 3.8, see the feature list.

[edit] Benefit to Fedora

Fedora stays in sync with upstream.

[edit] Scope

Proposal owners:

  • Keep existing GNOME packages updated
  • Follow upstream module changes
  • Package new applications and new dependencies of existing GNOME packages

[edit] Upgrade/compatibility impact

N/A (not a System Wide Change)

[edit] How To Test

Generic 'desktop testing' is always appropriate for a major new desktop version.

Specific testing for new features: TBD

[edit] User Experience

Overall desktop experience should be largely unchanged from F18.

Noticeable changes in the details:

  • The system status menus will be replaced by a single, combined menu

[edit] Dependencies

[edit] Contingency Plan

  • If GNOME 3.10 does not happen in time for Fedora 20, ship a release candidate like 3.9.91
  • Upstream will also look at dropping individual features if they are not ready in time

[edit] Documentation

[edit] Release Notes

Fedora 20 includes the latest version of the GNOME desktop, 3.10. For more information about what is new in this GNOME release, see the release notes.
