Is there a development version of GNOME applications like Nautilus for Ubuntu.


the development (i.e. alpha/beta) build of the upcoming Ubuntu release includes the development versions of  most GNOME applications.  For example, the last Ubuntu release was Precise (12.04) and the upcoming release is Quantal (12.10).  At the moment the Quantal alpha includes Nautilus 3.5.90 (i.e. the latest development release), gedit 3.5.1, Epiphany 3.5.4 and so on.  The easiest way to run this is to install the Ubuntu daily build ( and then use software updates to keep up to date.  The Ubuntu prereleases are quite stable; I've been running Quantal for at least a month now with no major problems.

In theory you could use jhbuild to build GNOME 3.5 on Ubuntu Precise, but I find it *much* easier and faster to simply run the development version of Ubuntu.  Hope this helps -
