GNOME presents this week's news

This week in GNOME

GNOME published a few hours ago the news note that has occurred in its universe in the week from May 3 to 10. Although, as usual, there is a little bit of everything, I think there is nothing that really stands out, beyond new versions of applications that, I think, are not widely used. If I had to highlight something from the following list, perhaps the new Varia update.

As for the rest, work has also been done this week taking advantage of the STF donation, but the list in this section is shorter than on other occasions. You could say that this note is similar to the one from two weeks ago, with quality changes over quantity, tell Planify. What follows is the list with news.
