GNOME Shell, Mutter to Handle Three-Finger Touchpad Pinch Gestures in GNOME 3.24

Both GNOME Shell 3.23.2 and Mutter 3.23.2 have been released in the last minutes of November 23, 2016, bringing several enhancements, such as the ability to handle three-finger touchpad pinch gestures, the ability to summarize network sections that contain lots of devices for GNOME Shell, and many improvements for the Wayland display server. GNOME Shell 3.23.2 implements Pad configuration OSD, improves full-screen transitions under Wayland, always displays the primary network icon when connected, adds a workaround for portal failures by using URLs without a Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) redirect, and makes the app view hiding to work when there’s no data usage present.
