gnome-shell 3.2.2

This is a bug-fix release. One notable improvement with this release
is that the browser plugin now works correctly with WebKit-based browsers
like Epiphany and Google Chrome. In addition, the release fixes
a number of common crashers, improves the behavior of the messaging
tray to interfere less with application operation, and fixes some cases
where the Network menu could get confused and misbehave.

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.
