Gnome

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.

Its the whole "KDE isn't the desktop or the apps or the libraries behind any of those things, but a project run by people" They decoupled those to allow them to progress at the whichever rate of development works best.

What most people think of as "KDE" is now Plasma Desktop and Kwin. I think.

In Fedora, the package group that installs Gnome is "GNOME Desktop". For Xfce, it's "Xfce Desktop", and likewise for LXDE, MATE, and Cinnamon.

KDE is "KDE Plasma Workspaces"
