GNOME 3.24 Desktop Environment Prepares for March 22 Release, New Beta Is Out

GNOME 3.24 Beta 2 arrives only two weeks after the first Beta release, and brings with it numerous updated core components and applications that are usually shipped under the GNOME Stack umbrella. The technical version number is GNOME 3.23.91, and can be downloaded from the usual places by early adopters and public beta testers. In approximately two weeks from the moment of writing this article, the GNOME developers will announce the availability of the Release Candidate (RC) build of the GNOME 3.24 desktop environment, which should also mark the Hard Code Freeze development stage, where no code changes will be made without approval.
