Latest updates to Wily and Xenial, GNOME 3.19 on its way and more goodies

- gdm packaging and binaries have been migrated to gdm3, all to match Debian, which is a change unnoticeable for casual users, but advanced users may like this change (packages, binaries, services and configurations all now use gdm3 instead of gdm)

- we were aware, that the Live Session on Daily Builds was broken for a few days as the above migrated through, with last night's build that's fixed now

- gnome-calendar and gnome-logs have both been added and gnome-system-log has been removed

- gnome-builder is now available to install from Xenial archives

- although the wily/gnome3-staging PPA has been declared stable for a while now, today we're declaring it stable and safe for usage officially

- GNOME 3.19 will be on its way to xenial/gnome3-staging PPA shortly, bear in mind that packages from this repository are considered unstable and only for experienced users

- any GNOME 3.18 bits left in xenial/gnome3-staging will be copied to xenial/gnome3 PPA before we start breaking things!

+HEX cube Xenial will ship with GNOME 3.18, in fact is already 99% there. We may include select 3.20 apps, but that will be evaluated later in the cycle.

+Darth Anubis Wily/gnome3-staging PPA has (and will remain on) GNOME 3.18

In the press: +Bryan Lunduke​ described Ubuntu GNOME 15.10 as "the most impressive release since +Ubuntu​ made the switch to Unity".
Short version: +Ubuntu GNOME is, in so many ways, superior to vanilla +Ubuntu.  This is what Ubuntu should be.
Reviewing Ubuntu GNOME 15.10, the most impressive release since Ubuntu made the switch to Unity.

Our lead developer +Tim Lunn has informed us of the most recent progress on Ubuntu GNOME 16.04 LTS with most of GNOME 3.18 included and ready for testing!

Another good news to confirm is the migration to GNOME Software to replace Ubuntu Software Centre (USC).

That being said, those eager to test the latest, bleeding edge technology are encouraged to head over to and download their copy.

Disclaimer: testing new builds is only encouraged if you know what you're doing. It is not recommended to use a testing build on production machines!
Just landed a big batch of GNOME 3.18 backports from Xenial to the Wily gnome3-staging, including evolution and many other apps, Enjoy!

With the release of Wily we also worked on a lot of things non-code related, namely restructuring our teams to utilize our resources ( as efficient as possible and as part of that we'll also try to keep you posted on a more regular basis on what our devs are up to.

Most recent progress is marked by the work on:

- Xenial Xerus (Ubuntu GNOME 16.04 LTS) now being open for business, with most of GNOME 3.18 being available in the upcoming week(s)
- current focus lies on fixing these troublemakers

Fixes will be introduced as part of Stable Release Updates (SRU). More on that here

- last but not least, +Tim Lunn's now our patch pilot and apparently the first ever non-Canonical one, congrats!

Great things coming up!
