The time applet has also changed, providing more information. Now you will have weather information, appointment information and direct access to the calendar and of course, direct access to notifications.
The star file manager, Nautilus, has also changed but in general have focused on correcting bugs and performance problems that had the file manager. The same goes for the Wayland support.
Gnome Games is a set of applications that offer the user the classic games of a lifetime. In this case, the video games have been updated and also the retro game console emulators offered by this section of Gnome to be able to play classic games.
The Gnome Software center has also debugged its bugs but above all it has focused on better incorporate support for flatpak packages for distributions that can use it.
A more productive and functional Gnome is what the Gnome developers have been looking for and it seems that with Gnome 3.24 it has been achieved. However, there are still few distributions that include this desktop version in their official repositories. It seems that Gnome users will have to wait a bit longer.
