- Brought maturity to GOM. It's now usable for real applications (including a number of grilo plugins), and will be gaining features for the more demanding uses soon (such as batched writes), along with gjs support.
- Made the default firewall experience on Fedora better (and made Sharing better on every NetworkManager-using Linux distribution, by the same token).
- Automatic rotation for Windows 8 certified devices. This will still need more work to be integrated into systemd/udev or GNOME.
- Worked on architecturing the Sharing functionality between applications which will be required for sandboxed applications.
- A bit last minute, but Totem now works on Wayland, triggering more bugs in the stack.
To look forward to
If all goes according to plan, I'll be able to merge the aforementioned automatic rotation support into systemd/udev. The kernel API is pretty bad, which makes the user-space code look bad...
The first parts of ebooks support in gnome-documents have already been written, scheduled for 3.16.
And my favourites
Note: With links that will open up like a Christmas present when GNOME 3.14 is released.
There are a lot of big, new features in GNOME 3.14. The Adwaita rewrite made it possible to polish the theme greatly. The captive portals support is very useful, the travelling you will enjoy this (I certainly have!).
But my favourite new feature has to be the gestures support in gnome-shell. I'll make good use of that :)
The links to the release notes seem a bit premature, since they seem to be password protected.
Elliott: Huh, I know, that's mentioned in the text...
Bastien: Geez, I swear that wasn't there before! Honest!
Elliott: For what it's worth, the release notes links are available now.
