GNOME is developing a free desktop for the next generation. It's created by an open community, which provides a simple and beautiful experience for everyone.
The application core is continually being improved. Much of the advancements were made by new and long-time contributors alike, together with GNOME interns from Outreachy and Google Summer of Code.
Files has seen a lot of new development this cycle. Archives are now automatically extracted when opened. Files can also compress your data to the most commonly used archive formats such as zip, tar and 7-zip. Moreover bulk renaming support makes it possible to rename multiple files at once in a single operation. A variety of patterns can be used such as numbers or file metadata. This makes organizing large collections of files easy and convenient. GNOME Software has received visual improvements and flatpak integration. The landing page has been polished to be more attractive and colorful. This cycle also lands further integration for installing Flatpak bundles and repositories.
- GNOME Photos can share images from your image collection. Currently sharing is supported by e-mail and via Google Photos.
- Calendar supports using drag n' drop to move your calendar events, making event rescheduling a breeze.
- Polari includes support for remembering passwords when identifying with authentication services.
- ..and GNOME Games has received gamepad support.
Major work is being undertaken to improve the desktop infrastructure. GNOME is enhancing desktop security by building sandboxing technology with GTK, Wayland, and Flatpak.
With this release, developers can make use of sandboxing technology directly from GNOME Builder. From the revamped headerbar, you can compile your projects against a Flatpak runtime.
GNOME 3.22 will be available through many distributions soon. We hope you like it! The GNOME community is friendly and open for anyone. We invite you to help us push the free desktop further by getting involved today.

- I like to keep the former part using the "-ing" form to indicate that this is an ongoing process. Will take the latter suggestion for sure though. -Bastian
Suggestion: "Much of the advancements made in this release were made by new and long-time contributors alike, together with GNOME interns from Outreachy and Google Summer of Code." (Nuritzi)
- Good suggestion! I removed the "made in this release" since I felt saying it said "made" too many times. -Bastian
Suggestion: "GNOME 3.22 will soon be provided by many distributions so that you can enjoy the new features from this release. The GNOME community is friendly and open for anyone, and we invite you to help us push the free desktop further by getting involved today." (Nuritzi)
- Sounds good. -Bastian
Question: do we use "headerbar" or "top bar"? Maybe both, but just checking to see if that's the term you meant. (Nuritzi)
Header bar is the GTK+ widget used in all modern GNOME applications. It combines the title bar and buttons for different actions. Top bar is the black bar in GNOME Shell with "Activities", the clock and that menu that lets you access settings or turn off. In this script, header bar is correct for Builder. -- AlexandreFranke
- Indeed. -Bastian
- Question: do we want to add another sentence about GNOME Software's facelift? Something about editor's picks or categories? We might not need it though depending on the visual. (Nuritzi)
- What do you have in mind? -Bastian
- Something about the editor's picks or categories. The more I think about it though, we probably don't need another sentence. (Nuritzi)
