I’m sorry, I’ve been very busy in the couple of days so I couldn’t give you fresh news at all. Here are some short news about what happened recently.
The latest and greatest Gnome 3 version has been released recently. It includes new notifications, a new Shell theme, new scrollbar, new file browser. Improvements in Image Viewer, Music, Photos and Videos applications. The login screen uses Wayland by default. For a detailed review with lots of screenshots and video I recommend WebUpd8’s post about Gnome 3.16 release.
