GNOME 3.36 aims to be another great release for one of the most popular graphical environments

GNOME 3.36

In just over two months Canonical will release Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Focal Fossa. A month earlier, Project GNOME plans to release GNOME 3.36, a new version of one of the most popular graphics environments that looks like it will be a major release again. We say that it will "be" again because, among other things, GNOME 3.34 It arrived greatly improving the stability of the systems that use it, which also includes greater speed and fluidity.

En this article from GNOME Shell & Mutter Dev for January we can see what they're working on. For example, the layers of the dialogs will be unified. Gesture support will also be improved or, what I find more interesting, a option to "snoop" the password. The latter is already available in many operating systems and graphical environments, but not in GNOME. What this change will do is add an eye icon to the right side of the text box that, when clicked, will show the password we just entered.

GNOME 3.36 will allow us to rename the app launcher folders

On the other hand, it is also working to clean up all the little bugs and problems that have been found in previous versions. This is especially important on operating systems like the flagship Ubuntu flavor as they came back to GNOME in Ubuntu 18.10 and have had to keep improving on Disco Dingo and Eoan Ermine.

GNOME 3.36 will also allow us rename app launcher folders. Currently, when we create a group, the name is added automatically and cannot be changed. GNOME 3.36 will add a button to edit the name and put the one that best suits our needs.

GNOME 3.36 will be released next March , which should allow enough time for Canonical to add it to the Focal Fossa which will release a month and 12 days later.

    Gnome shell is like carrying a motorcycle in your arms, heavy and clunky.
    They had to redesign it a long time ago. But the South African took a long time with unity
