GNOME Shell 3.2.1 y Mutter 3.2.1 liberados

Ayer fueron liberados GNOME Shell y Mutter en su versión 3.2.1 con una larga lista de bugs reparados para ambos paquetes, que solo apenas un par de semanas atrás, celebraban el lanzamiento de su versión 3.2.

Dentro de los bugs reparados mas importantes en GNOME Shell se encuentra la restauración del estado de la mensajería instantánea al reiniciar el sistema, la posibilidad de elegir el usuario en GDM por medio de la tecla Enter (casi que no), mejoras al teclado en pantalla y muchos mas… La lista completa de cambios para GNOME Shell 3.2.1 la publico a continuación (en inglés).

Por el lado de Mutter los cambios no son tantos ni tan significativos, supongo que seguiremos teniendo los mismos problemas de controladores de video que hasta el momento han aquejado a GNOME Shell y que particularmente le hacen la vida tan difícil a los dueños de tarjetas de video AMD Radeon.

Esta rápida actualización es una prueba del compromiso mostrado por el equipo de desarrollo de GNOME 3, que esta trabajando bastante para darle a GNOME Shell el toque que mucho de nosotros estamos pidiendo.

Estas a gusto con el desempeño actual de GNOME Shell y su rápido desarrollo, o aun crees que falta mucho para que te termine de convencer?
