GNOME 3.0. The only significant change we expect after this release is to
add a native network indicator based on NetworkManager 0.9.

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.
