Hi everyone, below you will find updates from the Desktop team’s Distro squad from the last week. If you’re interested in discussing a topic please start a thread in the Desktop area of Discourse.

Last week’s notes are here: Desktop Team Distro Squad Updates – Monday 9th October 2023

  • webkit2gtk was updated to the new 2.42 series for Ubuntu 22.04 LTS and 23.04. I helped by backporting the devhelp and surf fixes from Ubuntu 23.10.
  • Did upgrade testing for many desktop flavors to verify that the font corruption issue didn’t affect them.
  • Uploaded Sergio’s update of Terminus’ GNOME Shell extension to support GNOME Shell 45 to Ubuntu 23.10 but it missed the release by a few hours so it will be a SRU instead.
