The GNOME project have put out GNOME 3.4, the latest release in the GNOME 3 line. The DE builds upon 3.0 and 3.2, bringing with it a big list of updates, as well as upgrades to some core GNOME applications. These have been given a visual overhaul as well as other updates to bring them more in line with GNOME 3’s look.

Additions to this release include a document search function, filtering document results separately, with local and online files included using the GNOME Documents application. Applications menus are a new feature where context sensitive menus will appear when you right click on the top bar for the application. These new features are followed by a series of updates and optimisations for better hardware support, better video calling support, and animated backgrounds.

You can download GNOME 3.4 from the GNOME Project website, and newer versions will make their way to repositories shortly.
