Major new features for this release include a significant update to the experience for finding and installing applications, as well as major facelifts for the Videos and gedit applications. Those who have high resolution displays will benefit from greater support, and users will experience better start up times as well as more efficient resource usage. They will also be able to quickly organize their applications with the new application folders feature.

I remember a time when GNOME and KDE releases were big deals here. Feels like eons ago, a distant memory from an irrelevant past.

These releases might not be big deals, but I prefer it this way. Big deals imply big (or even braking) changes required because of problems. Little improvements indicate a solid working desktop environment where improvement is to be found in subtleties like styling improvements and less resource usage.

Since some years I am a very happy Gnome 3 user. It is stable, fast and supports my workflow with very little mouse usage. Besides this it is looking great: clean and easy on the eye!
