... if you thought 4.6.0 was good

"I'm really happy with how the number of bug reports coming in is not a massive deluge of different bugs, but mostly just endless repetition of the same handful. For some of them (like the notifications collapse triggered crash on exit) we're getting several duplicates per day, so we know it's not just because people aren't using or reporting!

"Even better than having bugs reported is having bugs fixed, of course. Which is exactly what's been happening in droves. From multi-screen fixes to panel hiding fixes to, yes, fixing that on-exit crash, we're smacking the bugs down as fast as we can so that next month's 4.6.1 release will be beautifully solid.

"I'm hoping that the upcoming springtime releases of the various distributions will be able to benefit from this bug fixing spree as well so that users installing the defaults will have a great experience too."
