Now that the GNOME 3.26 desktop environment received its first point release and it already started landing in the repositories of various popular GNU/Linux distributions, it’s time for the GNOME devs to concentrate their efforts on the next major release.
That’s right, we’re talking about GNOME 3.28, the version that will be released next in the release cycle of the popular desktop environment for GNU/Linux distributions. Its development starts next week with the first milestone, GNOME 3.27.1, which is expected to land around the date of October 18, 2017.
Of course, we don’t expect this first milestone of GNOME 3.28 to reveal any of the new features that will be implemented, but later in the development cycle, which will continue in the coming months, until the end of the year, with two more such milestones, namely GNOME 3.27.2 on November 15 and GNOME 3.27.3 on December 13.
