About GNOME Shell

GNOME Shell provides core user interface functions for the GNOME 3
desktop, like switching to windows and launching applications.
GNOME Shell takes advantage of the capabilities of modern graphics
hardware and introduces innovative user interface concepts to
provide a visually attractive and easy to use experience.

Tarball releases are provided largely for distributions to build
packages. If you are interested in building GNOME Shell from source,
we would recommend building from version control using the build
script described at:

Not only will that give you the very latest version of this rapidly
changing project, it will be much easier than get GNOME Shell and
its dependencies to build from tarballs.

Changes since 2.91.92
 * New network indicator for NetworkManager 0.9. This mostly
   completes replacing all legacy status icons in the status area
   with native implementations. If NetworkManager 0.9 is not
   found, the old nm-applet status icon will be shown in the
   status area as before [Giovanni; Matthias, Dan]
 * Multi monitor improvements [Alex]
   - Rewrite window positioning code to enable multi-monitor goodness
   - Enable new Mutter feature  workspaces_only_on_primary so that
     workspace switching only affects the primary monitor and
     windows on other monitors are unaffected.
   - In the overview, show windows for each monitor on that monitor
     rather than scrunching them oddly onto the primary monitor.
   - Use new "pointer barriers" feature of XFixes extension to trap the
     mouse cursor at hot screen corners even when there are adjacent
     monitors the cursor could slide onto.
   - Don't use a slideout for the workspace selector if it's at a
     monitor boundary.
 * Message Tray
   - Combine multiple notifications from the same source into a
     "stack" instead of filling the summary area with identical
     icons. [Marina]
   - Queue up incoming notifications while the user is interacting
     with the summary area [Hellyna]
   - Don't show resident (permanent) notifications from apps that
     are currently active [Neha]
   - Improve styling of items in the message tray to make
     click targets and states more obvious [Marina, Florian, Jonathan S]
   - For legacy status icons, forward clicks on the message tray label
     to the icon. [Dan]
   - For legacy status icons, kick out of the Activies Overview when
     the icon or label is clicked. [Dan]
   - Fix scrolling to the bottom when new messages arrive [Adel]
   - Misc bug fixes [Dan, Owen]
 * Greatly speed up search by not creating objects for non-displayed
   results [Maxim]
 * Fix long delay on entering overview on certain AMD cards by
   not repeatedly looking for the actor at pointer [Adel]
 * Message Tray chat [Jasper]
   - Add history navigation to entry
   - Handle and display aliases correctly
   - Carry conversations across shell restart
   - Support "actions" like the IRC /me command
   - Retrieve chat history from TelepathyLogger
 * When removing an empty workspace, merge it with the empty
   workspace and enter the overview instead of animating to
   a random adjacent workspace [Adel, Owen]
 * Performance testing framework [Owen]
   - Use standardized window confgurations instead of whatever
     windows the user has around.
   - Add new performance metrics for switching to the app view and
     for overview performance with different numbers of windows open.
 * Fix up StTooltip (fix bugs, add hover timeouts, and constrain
   tooltips to monitors) and use to display labels on hover over
   applications in the Dash [Giovanni, Florian, Owen]
 * Allow dragging over the workspace selector during a XDND drag to
   change workspaces [Adel]
 * Add Restart button to shutdown dialog [Ray]
 * Remove Screen Reader and Screen Keyboard from Accessibility menu;
   not ready to be a prominent feature of GNOME 3.0, though still
   available through System Settings. [Dan]
 * Honor relevant lockdown GSettings keys [Florian]
 * Improve appearance of PolicyKit dialogs [David]
 * Fixes for RTL layout [Abderrahim, Giovanni]
 * Remove sliding startup indicator in favor of a fixed one [Florian]
 * Obey global GNOME text size setting [Owen]
 * Visual tweaks [Adel, Florian, Jon M,  Jonathan S, Phil, Ray]
 * Code cleanups [Colin, Florian, Owen]
 * Build fixes [Bastien, Colin, Dan, Frédéric, Florian, Giovanni, Jason, Owen]
 * Bug fixes [Adel, Alex, Colin, Dan, David, Diego, Florian, Giovanni, Jasper,
   Jon M, Maxim, Neil, Owen, Ray, Vadim, Wouter]
