[bookmark=]Released GameMode GNOME Shell extension version 5 yesterday, that should work with Shell 40 (and hopefully 3.38). Made possible by the hard work of new contributors! Many thanks! [/bookmark]

[bookmark=]Gesture support in X11/Linux has been merged in today! Again an awesome work by Povilas Kanapickas.

[bookmark=]RIGHT! It’s beta, but we have a Matrix bridge up for @liberachat: you can connect to where # is the channel. Huge thanks to the team for letting us expose the network on Matrix! We are also working through fixing the bridge bug backlog :) [/bookmark]
