GNOME 3.30 “Almeria” Desktop Environment Officially Released, Here’s What’s New

Dubbed “Almeroa” after the host city of the GUADEC (GNOME Users And Developers European Conference) 2018 event that took place in early July, GNOME 3.30 updates numerous of its core apps and components by adding new features and enhancements to make your GNOME desktop experience more pleasant. Probably the most important feature of the GNOME 3.30 desktop environment release is the return of the GNOME Classic mode that lets users use desktop icons. After it’s been removed from the Nautilus file manager, the handling of the desktop icons returns as an extension for the GNOME Shell user interface.
