An Early Look at Ubuntu Dock for GNOME Shell in Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark)

To keep you guys up-to-date with the development of Ubuntu, we’re running the operating system on a daily basis, continuously monitoring incoming packages and other changes. As of August 16, 2017, Canonical’s Didier Roche uploaded a package called gnome-shell-extension-ubuntu-dock in Ubuntu 17.10 repositories. It’s no brainer that’s the package to enable Canonical’s modified Dash to Dock extension on the GNOME Shell, and, once installed, it can be easily enabled from the Extensions section of the GNOME Tweaks utility. As of now, the dock won’t be automatically enabled after it’s been installed, not even after logging out the session.
