Publication de Gnome 3.7.2 (source

Plop les bovinautes !!!

La team de Gnome Shell a publié il y a quelques heures la version 3.7.2 de leur bel animal. Celui-ci embarque au bas mot plus de 20 améliorations visuelles et les premiers changements relatifs à l’outil de recherche.

Il embarque également une série de correctifs et d’améliorations tellement importante qu’il m’a été impossible de les traduire. Vu mon piêtre niveau en anglais la nuit n’aurait pas suffit.

Je vais donc lâchement reprendre la série publiée par le site worldofgnome et vous laisser vous dépatouiller avec. Cela dit même si vous êtes nuls en anglais ça ne devrait pas vous poser trop de problèmes, on arrive assez bien à comprendre de quoi il s’agit.
