Gnome GNOME Shell is the new core user interface for GNOME 3. GNOME Shell 2.29.0 brings a lot of new features and improvements, the most noticeable being a new message tray showing notifications sliding into the bottom of the screen, a status area for past notifications, the ability to set your presence to the user status menu, switching the overview between a grid and linear view of workspaces.

i've been using gnome-shell since 2.28 and have been updating from git every day. the difference between 6 months ago is amazing.

BUT

i've only realised in the past couple of weeks that gnome-shell isn't very revolutionary, more evolutionary.

the overlay is just a start menu that lets you manage windows as well. it's a cool idea and i feel very comfortable but it's really just a start menu in on column and a window arranger in the other.

I think that it's a much cleaner way to handle everything but it's still only spade v1.9.
