The GNOME Project is proud to announce the release of GNOME 44, ‘Kuala Lumpur’.

This release brings a grid view in the file chooser, improved settings panels for Device Security, Accessibility, etc, and refined quick settings in the shell. The Software and Files apps have seen improvements, and a whole slew of new apps has joined
the GNOME Circle.

GNOME 44 will be available shortly in many distributions, such as Fedora 38 and Ubuntu 23.04. If you want to try it today, you can look for their beta releases, which will be available very soon: Getting GNOME

We are also providing our own installer images for debugging and testing features. These images are meant for installation in a vm and require GNOME Boxes with UEFI support. We suggest getting Boxes from Flathub.

Try the latest and greatest GNOME software in a VM or on real hardware If you are interested in building applications for GNOME 44, look for the GNOME 44 Flatpak SDK, which is available in the Flathub repository.

This six-month effort wouldn’t have been possible without the whole GNOME community, made of contributors and friends from all around the world: developers, designers, documentation writers, usability and accessibility specialists, translators, maintainers, students, system administrators, companies, artists, testers, the local GNOME Asia team in Malaysia, and last, but not least, our users.

GNOME would not exist without all of you. Thank you to everyone!

We hope to see some of you at GUADEC 2023 in Riga, Latvia!

Our next release, GNOME 45, is planned for September 2023. Until then, enjoy GNOME 44.
