GNOME 3.10 Reflections

Filed under
Software

GNOME 3.10 was released last week. A lot of hard work went into it (I know I felt pretty exhausted by the end), but I think that it was worth it. We ended up with an excellent release.

I’ve been using bits and pieces of 3.10 for some time, and completely adopted it (through Fedora 20) about a week ago. It feels like some important aspects of the GNOME 3 experience have started to fall into place with the latest release. Most obviously, we have quite a few new applications, which fill gaps in the core application set. We are also seeing the application design patterns starting to mature. The addition of header bars makes a fantastic difference.

Linux 3.18 Kernel: Not Much Change With Intel Haswell Performance

For those wondering whether there will be any exciting improvements with the Intel DRM graphics driver in the Linux 3.18 kernel, here's some OpenGL performance benchmarks.

When comparing the stable Linux 3.16.0, 3.17.0, and 3.18.0 Git daily kernels for this system with standard HD Graphics 4600, there really isn't exciting about this latest Linux kernel. Read more
