The GNOME Release team meeting at the GNOME Bangalore hackfest have*decided to postpone the 3.0 release to September of this year.
And no, this isn’t an April Fools!
The reasons for the delay as put by release manager Vincent Untz are…
- A huge number of freeze break requests
- Some modules seeing merge of branches with more than 10000 lines of changes
- The constant changes in the design
- A platform that is moving in new directions (with GTK+ 4 coming soon, for example)
- As well as a huge list of important bugs combined with the fact that Mozilla is dropping the embedded versions of Gecko rendering engine (which gnome-shell uses).
GNOME 2.34 will not be released and focus would be put on GNOME 3.0 instead. Module proposals, however, would remain open.
What an epic day to make this important announcement!
