GNOME 3.30 Beta 2 is now available within weeks of its release

GNOME 3.30

The GNOME project has announced the availability of the second beta for its next GNOME 3.30 update whose arrival date is the first days of the following month.

Arriving two weeks after the first beta, GNOME 3.30 has received a second beta yesterday and Michael Catanzaro, GNOME developer, has reported through the mail. This second beta, with the build number GNOME 3.29.91, marks cessation of movement in the software area for the development cycle.

GNOME 3.29.91 does not seem like an easy release for the team, Catanzaro reports fixes in many components, including GNOME Boxes, which were removed in this second update. As a result, many components are out of update at this release.

To avoid making the update process even more difficult, developers are encouraged to push updates to the components they maintain if there are any fixes to be made via Git to avoid compilation issues.

If you want to send feedback on this second beta for the next GNOME 3.30 in your favorite distribution you can download it through Official BuildStream, using the source packages or using the Flatkpak repositories.

The GNOME 3.30 development cycle will continue with the release of a GNOME 3.29.92 Release Candidate which has a release date of August 29. After that, GNOME 3.30 will officially arrive on September 5, 2018.

Last August 15, the GNOME project celebrated its 21st anniversary since Miguel de Icaza and Federico Mena Quintero founded the organization in an attempt to create graphical environment alternatives to KDE and other similar open source projects.
