The latest update to GNOME 3, version 3.10, has been released. This release comes six months after the previous version, and includes new features, new applications, and many improvements.
Introducing the release, Allan Day (GNOME Design Team) said, ‟GNOME 3.10 is a significant upgrade for our users, and developers will benefit from new features in the application development platform. Our contributors did an incredible job and have created a really exciting release.“
Highlights in this release include:
A reworked system status area, which gives a more focused overview of your system.
‟Software“, which provides an easy way to browse and install applications.
A collection of new applications, including Maps, Notes, Music and Photos.
New geolocation features, such as automatic time zones and world clocks.
