The GNOME project announced the immediate availability of the first maintenance update for the GNOME 3.30 graphical environment.
GNOME 3.30.1 is the first security and stability update for GNOME 3.30 and brings many improvements, bug fixes and updated translations for many essential components and applications, allowing GNOME 3.30 to be ready for massive installations.
One of the things that do not come with GNOME 3.30.1 is the GNOME Shell update, which is not included due to many errors and problems in the initial release, which until now have not been resolved, so it is recommended to install the patches separately.
“GNOME 3.30.1 is available now. This is a stable update that contains the work of three weeks. Since it only contains error fixes, all GNOME 3.30 distributions should be updated, “says Michael Catanzaro on the team’s mailing list.
GNOME 3.30.2 will arrive on October 24, 2018
GNOME 3.30 will receive a maintenance and security update, GNOME 3.30.2 expected to arrive on October 24, 2018. The bad news is that it will be the last maintenance update, although many components will continue to receive updates for six more months , until the arrival of GNOME 3.32.
Until then, we recommend that users update to GNOME 3.30.1 as soon as the packages reach the official repositories of their distributions. Those who want to compile GNOME 3.30.1 on their own can use the project’s channel or source packages. All the details of this update can be found on the official page.
