Gnome 3.2

I've been using Gnome 3 for a couple of weeks now, and enjoying it a lot. There are a few things about it that I was thinking could be improved, but today I discovered from the As far as I know blog that the Gnome team is already ahead of me.

Gnome 3.2 is going to get:
  • A matching GDM welcome screen.
  • Integrated chat- no need to launch Empathy.
  • More natural workspace switcher behaviour.
  • Device hot plugging work nicely with the shell.
  • More obvious  waiting messages.
The last one, for me, is the most annoying. Leave the computer for a few minutes and the only way to see if an email has arrived in the meantime is push the cursor into the bottom right of the screen to bring up the message tray.
