GNOME 3.7: what is happening now

Before Thanksgiving I’ve caused some uproar and made people doubt our incurable stubbornness by first announcing the release team decision to drop fallback mode (*), and then that we’re going to be looking at supported extensions as a replacement (*). Some have been calling this ‘classic’ mode – I’m using the term ‘legacy’ here, since ‘classic’ may raise some false expectations.

Two weeks have passed since that initial announcement, so I thought it would be a good idea to give an update on what we [1] have achieved so far.
