openSUSE Tumbleweed Is the First Linux Distro to Offer the GNOME 3.22 Desktop

As you might know, openSUSE Tumbleweed is a rolling release Linux-based operating system, and it usually gets latest software versions a few days after they are released upstream, but this time the openSUSE GNOME team was extremely fast and it took them only 48 hours to make the GNOME 3.22 packages available in the distro through a new snapshot. In some other good news, the openSUSE Tumbleweed operating system is now powered by the latest Linux 4.7.4 kernel and it is built on GCC (GNU Composite Compiler) 6.2.1. If you want GCC 5, you should know that GCC 5.4.1 is available as well in Tumbleweed, along with the newest KDE Applications 16.08.1 software suite and KDE Frameworks 5.26.0 collection of add-on libraries for Qt5.
