The GNOME Project is proud to announce the release of GNOME 46, ‘Kathmandu’.

This release brings remote login with RDP, variable refresh rates (VRR), many accessibility improvements, enhanced notifications, and improved Settings. The Files app comes with a new global search and many other enhancements, and a whole slew of new apps have joined GNOME Circle.

GNOME 46 will be available shortly in many distributions, such as Fedora 40 and Ubuntu 24.04. 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.

GNOME OS Nightly

If you are interested in building applications for GNOME 46, look for the GNOME 46 Flatpak SDK, which is available in the 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 Nepal, 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 2024 in Denver, Colorado!

Our next release, GNOME 47, is planned for September 2024. Until then, enjoy GNOME 46.
