Release 3.24

  • - Release parties - Dev freezes? @All - Does anyone know of relevant ones we should promote? - Beta release? @All - Does anyone know of relevant ones we should promote?

The release schedule is here. We've just had the second beta. That leaves the final development release - the "release candidate" - which is scheduled for March 15th.

There have been a bunch of other posts on Planet GNOME that it would be good to share, possibly in the run up to the release. https://csorianognome.wordpress.com/2017/02/21/nautilus-3-24-the-changes/ http://bytesgnomeschozo.blogspot.co.uk/2017/03/gnome-games-324.html https://feaneron.com/2017/02/23/the-new-online-accounts-printer-panels-and-other-related-news/

GTK+ hackfest https://wiki.gnome.org/Hackfests/GTK2017 March 20 - 22

I'm not thrilled about there being a hackfest at the same time as the 3.24 release - it makes it hard to stay on message. We might have to think about how to reconcile this in our messaging.
