> Hi all,
> Here's this week's update:
> This week saw the release of GNOME 3.26, and we’re ready to ship it in
> 17.10.  This will bring new versions of the core applications and new
> features as described in the GNOME release notes.
> https://help.gnome.org/misc/release-notes/3.26/
> If you’ve been running 17.10 for a while you will have already been using
> 3.25, the development branch of 3.26, and so you will have already be
> familiar with 3.26
> We’ve also been working on adding support for progress bars and urgent
> notifications to the Dash to Dock extension and we ported Dash to Dock
> settings to the new Control Center layout for 3.26
> We’ve been working with the GNOME community on documentation to help
> people transitioning from Unity to GNOME and we tracked down and fixed a
> GDM but which was selecting the wrong session at login.  Patches are
> upstream.
> Snap
> Our patches to add PolicyKit support have been cherry picked for snapd
> 2.28.  This will allow you to install Snaps without having to login to
> Ubuntu One.
> We have built new Snaps for gnome-characters and gnome-logs.
> Updates
> Chromium 61.0.3163.79 got promoted to stable channel and will be tested
> published soon.
> Chromium dev channel is updated to 62.0.3202.9.
> Cheers, Will
