GNOME 3.26 Desktop Environment Up to RC State, Launches on September 13

GNOME 3.26 has been in development since early April, and it’s now up to RC (Release Candidate) state, which means that the development cycle is over and the team will begin preparations for the final release of the highly anticipated desktop environment for GNU/Linux distributions. Most GNU/Linux users should receive the GNOME 3.26 update when the first point release, namely GNOME 3.26.1, hits the streets, which will happen about three weeks after the September 13 launch, in early October. Distributions like Arch Linux, Fedora, and Solus could be the first to get GNOME 3.26, and Ubuntu 17.10 launches October 19 with GNOME 3.26 by default.
