Here comes GNOME 3.16

OpenSource For You - - FOSS BYTES -

The GNOME 3.16 up­date was an­nounced on March 25, which def­i­nitely is the best ver­sion yet. Fea­tures in­clude a new GNOME Shell theme, a re­vamped no­ti­fi­ca­tion sys­tem, more use­ful no­ti­fi­ca­tion pop-ups, over­lay scroll­bars for all GNOME ap­pli­ca­tions, im­por­tant us­abil­ity im­prove­ments for Nau­tilus (files), sup­port for scroll wheel em­u­la­tion in track­balls, NFS (Net­work File Sys­tem) sup­port in user space, Foursquare sup­port, Way­land lo­gin screen and an up­dated Ad­waita wall­pa­per.

Mul­ti­ple core com­po­nents have been up­dated, in­clud­ing Eye of GNOME, GTK+, Tracker, GNOME Maps, GNOME Mu­sic, GNOME Con­trol Cen­ter, videos, GNOME Ter­mi­nal, GLib2, gdk-pixbuf, lib­soup, Iagno, GNOME Doc­u­ments, GNOME Pho­tos, Evince, Cal­cu­la­tor and Mut­ter.

In­stalling GNOME 3.16 is not some­thing that can be done im­me­di­ately. Users of other GNU/Linux op­er­at­ing sys­tems need to wait pa­tiently un­til the GNOME 3.16 packages ar­rive on the main soft­ware repos­i­to­ries of their dis­tri­bu­tions. This in­cludes Fe­dora, the dis­tro most as­so­ci­ated with GNOME, which will use it in the next re­lease, ver­sion 22.
