The GNOME community values your privacy. That's why, by default, the new release of GNOME Web protects you from being tracked when browsing the Internet.

Many other applications have also improved this cycle including..

  • Polari, with new contextual popovers and notification functionality.
  • Software, which has had its visuals revamped for displaying updates.

Developers can look forward to an improved GNOME Builder with solid support for building containerized applications with flatpak. Builder also supports multiple build systems such as CMake, Autotools, Cargo and Meson.

GNOME could not exist without its supporting community. The project consists of many teams of contributors who volunteer their time to help advance the free desktop. Are you interested in helping with engagement, translation, documentation or coding? We have guides and friendly people to help you get started. With your help, free software and GNOME can continue to grow.
