GNOME Shell 3.10 Beta 2 Implements New System Status Area

GNOME Shell 3.10 Beta 2 improves the submenu styling, tweaks the system actions style, adds support for authentication without username, implements new power-off/end-session dialog design, and implements building of separate binaries for Wayland and X11. This release also fixes accessibility of sliders, as well as changing slider values via keyboard. The Dash tooltips are no longer displayed for applications with open pop-ups, the padding between system status icon has been tweaked, and the calendar’s keyboard navigation and accessibility has been improved.

The second Beta release of GNOME Shell 3.10 also supports the new NetworkManager APIs, the system actions section is now hidden in the lock screen, other logged users are no longer displayed at log out, and the “Session” subtitle heading has been removed from the login dialog.
