I can’t believe we finally released 3.0! The last months have been crazy with energy. The whole project feels revitalized.
Also, I’ve been using gnome-shell now for some time, and I’m really liking it. Going back to gnome 2 now feels clumsy and painful. You should all try it out and make up your own mind, but please try to avoid immediately tweaking it to your old ways, instead try the new defaults for a while, you might like it more than you expect.
Make sure to read the cheat sheet to learn all the new tricks. I really like the new alt-<key over tab> feature!
