Ubuntu GNOME Changelog

New in version 13.04 Beta 2

April 5th, 2013
  • In coordination with the Ubuntu Desktop Team, we have decided to stick with GNOME 3.6 for Ubuntu 13.04.
  • The GNOME3 PPA offers an early look at GNOME 3.8 for Ubuntu. Please note that you need to do a dist-upgrade instead of a regular upgrade or else GDM or GNOME Shell won't run after upgrading. In case of problems, please make yourself familiar with ppa-purge before using the GNOME3 PPAs.
  • There are some additional GNOME 3.8 apps in the GNOME3 Staging PPA but these apps have known bugs, some of which are serious or critical bugs.
  • Default apps have changed since Ubuntu GNOME Remix 12.10:
  • Firefox instead of GNOME Web (Epiphany)
  • Ubuntu Software Center and Update Manager instead of GNOME Software (gnome-packagekit)
  • LibreOffice instead of Abiword and Gnumeric
  • The other apps are still available for install; they just aren't included in the default install.
