Upcoming Features of GNOME 3.10

GNOME 3.10 will be released sometime in autumn 2013

While most of you are enjoying the brand-new release of the popular GNOME desktop environment, version 3.8, deep down in some "caves" the GNOME developers are hard at work, forging the features of the next major release, GNOME 3.10.

First of all, we already know that the GNOME 3.10 desktop environment will be ported to the Wayland display server, while still supporting the XOrg one.

According to the GNOME developers, it looks like in GNOME 3.10 the extensions will be automatically updated, and focus-caret tracking and color tinting functions will be implemented in GNOME Shell user interface.

Moreover, GNOME 3.10 will feature new applications, Maps and Videos, as well as Git integration for a better developer experience.

At the time of writing this, we have no idea when the first development release of GNOME 3.10 is out, but based on past release schedules, the development process should start next month, in May 2013 and it will conclude on October 2013.

Until then, enjoy the greatest release (so far) of the GNOME desktop environment, GNOME 3.8, which can be downloaded right now from Softpedia.
