Login to GNOME 3.36

Yesterday o of some of the What's New with GNOME 3.36. Shortly before, although we have seen it shortly after, Kalev Lember had published a video showing several of them, among which we have what you see in the screenshot that heads this article. Lember has recorded the GNOME video about Fedora, one of the most popular Linux distributions, but one that is neither our favorite nor the one that gives this blog its name.

Something important about this release, like the previous one, is that in GNOME 3.36 they have also focused on fixing small performance problems, which should make v3.36 of the graphical environment even faster, stable and fluid. Below you have the video that Lember has shared and an explanation of all the interesting news that he mentions.

What we see in this video about GNOME 3.36

  • The first thing we see is the login screen and the new button that will allow us to see the password entered. This is something that we could already see in many operating systems or graphical environments. Lember says this will be available at other points where we have to enter the password.
  • New Do Not Disturb mode. When activated from the notification center, the date is underlined with a blue line. Important notifications like "low battery" will keep coming.
  • Ability to edit folder names in the application launcher.
  • Creating folders in the app launcher is now easier and faster.
  • New app "Extensions" installed by default. In theory, it will no longer be necessary to install the package gnome-shell-extensions to install extensions.
  • Performance improvements.
  • Visual tweaks that will improve the interface design, among which we have the system dialogs.
  • When you click on the systray, the "Suspend" option is always visible.

GNOME 3.36 (3.35.90) ​​is now available to test from this link. The stable version will arrive next March .
