items can be easily viewed in a special location that can be opened from the sidebar.</p>
-    <p>Favorites have also been added to the <app>Contacts</app> application, where they appear pinned to 
the top of the contact list — great for contacts that you often return to.</p>

-    <title>More Beautiful Things</title>

-    <p>GNOME 3.28 comes with more beautiful things! First, and most significantly, GNOME’s default interface 
font (called Cantarell) has undergone a significant update. Character forms and spacing have been evolved, so 
that text is more readable and attractive. Several new weights have also been added — light and extra bold — 
which are being used to produce interfaces that are both modern and beautiful.</p>
-    <p>Other beautiful things include GNOME’s collection of background wallpapers, which has been updated to 
include a lovely set of photographs, and the selection of profile pictures, which has been completely updated 
with attractive new images to pick from.</p>

+    <p>With GNOME 3.30, it is now possible to control screen sharing and remote desktop session through a 
newly added system menu. When screen sharing is enabled, an indicator to that effect is displayed in the 
panel. This works in Wayland and X11 sessions.</p>

-    <media type="image" src="figures/boxes-os-downloads.png"/>
-    <p>Boxes, the GNOME application for using remote and virtual machines, has a number of new features and 
enhancements for GNOME 3.28. One major new feature is automatic downloading of operating systems, straight 
from the new box assistant. To create a virtual machine, all you have to do is pick the operating system you 
want to use, and Boxes will do the rest.</p>
-    <p>The new version of Boxes also makes it easy to transfer files between your computer and virtual 
machines. To transfer files, you can either drag and drop them on to the Boxes window, or select the 
<gui>Send Files</gui> option and select files to be transferred using a file chooser. In both cases, Boxes 
provides feedback about the progress of file transfers, so you know how long they are going to take, as well 
as when they have finished.</p>

the previous version. The new keyboard automatically activates when a text area is selected, and the view is 
shifted to ensure that the text area is visible while typing. A variety of layouts are supported for 
different locales.</p>

-    <media type="image" src="figures/usage-performance.png"/>
-    <p>Usage is a new GNOME application that is being introduced in 3.28 as a technology preview. The new 
application is designed to make it easy to diagnose and resolve performance and capacity issues. The initial 
version includes features for examining CPU and memory consumption. Problem areas are highlighted, making it 
quick and easy to identify the source of issues.</p>
-    <p>The Usage preview also allows disk usage to be examined. The interface for this highlights common 
sources of disk usage that can be cleared, such as the trash and temporary files.</p>

is active and when a connection is being established.</p>

mouse) by default. To use the gesture, keep one finger in contact with the touchpad and tap with another 
finger. In many cases this replaces tapping areas of the touchpad as the default secondary click method. A 
choice between the two behaviors is available in the <app>Tweaks</app> application.</p></item>

     release. Here are some of them!</p>

now allows you to search for fonts by name.</p></item>
