GNOME 3.16 brings a brand new notification system and updated calendar design, which helps you to easily keep track of what’s happened, and includes useful information like world times and event reminders. Other features include overlaid scrollbars, updated visuals, improved content views in Files, and a redesigned image viewer.

Major additions have also been made to the GNOME developer experience: GTK+ support for OpenGL now allows GTK+ apps to support 3D natively, a new GLib reference counting feature will help with debugging, and GTK+ Inspector has also had a major update.

Also released: GNOME Builder, an IDE for GNOME.

I've been on the XFCE bandwagon for too long. I must admit the new Plasma seems and feels like a quantum leap ahead from the perspective of an XFCE user. I can't wait to try a stable version of some Debian-based or Ubuntu-based distro sporting the latest KDE. It's a very well thought out environment, in my opinion. I hope the developers don't mess it up.
