Budgie 11 Desktop Environment Development Kicks Off, Will Support GNOME Apps, Qt

It’s not the first time we talk here about the development of the Budgie 11 desktop, which should have arrived in the last days of 2016. The current Budgie version is based on the GNOME 3.20 Stack, which means that it’s using some of its core libraries and apps for providing users with a functional and modern user interface. Unfortunately, during the migration to the latest GNOME 3.22 Stack, the Budgie developers encountered numerous issues, and, as a consequence, they decided it’s time to finally drop the use of the GNOME Stack within Budgie, as well as to move away from Vala.
