GNOME 3.10

Summary

Update GNOME to the latest upstream release

Owner

Current status

GNOME 3.9.90 (upstream beta for 3.10) has been built and should be available in the F20 branch.

Detailed Description

The highlights of GNOME 3.10 include

  • A new maps applications: gnome-maps
  • A new music application: gnome-music
  • A revamped system status menu
  • Flickr support in gnome-photos
  • Zimbra support in evolution

Initial support running gnome-shell as a Wayland compositor is also a goal for 3.10, together with improved touch support and supported for scaled output on high-dpi displays.

For detailed descriptions and designs of the features that are being worked on for GNOME 3.8, see the feature list.

Benefit to Fedora

Fedora stays in sync with upstream.

Scope

Proposal owners:

  • Keep existing GNOME packages updated
  • Follow upstream module changes
  • Package new applications and new dependencies of existing GNOME packages

Upgrade/compatibility impact

N/A (not a System Wide Change)

How To Test

Generic 'desktop testing' is always appropriate for a major new desktop version.

Specific testing for new features: TBD

User Experience

Overall desktop experience should be largely unchanged from F18.

Noticeable changes in the details:

  • The system status menus will be replaced by a single, combined menu

Dependencies

Contingency Plan

  • If GNOME 3.10 does not happen in time for Fedora 20, ship a release candidate like 3.9.91
  • Upstream will also look at dropping individual features if they are not ready in time

Documentation

Release Notes

Fedora 20 includes the latest version of the GNOME desktop, 3.10. For more information about what is new in this GNOME release, see the release notes.
