Gnome 3 (Gnome Shell) Released!
At 3:00 PM today, Gnome 3 was released! Screenshots of the new release are available at the Gnome 3 website here. On their website, you can also find Live USB/CDs of Fedora and openSuse to try out Gnome 3 🙂 They also have a YouTube channel here that shows some of the new features in Gnome 3 .
Also, there seems to be a PPA available for Ubuntu 11.04 users here, but be aware you can’t run Unity and Gnome Shell, once you install Gnome 3, it will break Unity. That PPA however is considered unstable until the release of Ubuntu 11.04
