GNOME 46 is available for download, what’s new?

Recently made available, GNOME 46 is a fresh evolution of one of the most popular desktop environments in the Linux world. It is the result of six months of work from the GNOME community, consisting of contributors, developers, designers, documentation writers, ergonomics and accessibility specialists, translators, maintainers, students, system administrators, companies, artists, and testers.

All these changes and innovations will soon be available through the Ubuntu distribution. Expected on April 25th, Ubuntu 24.04 LTS will offer GNOME 46. If you don’t want to wait, you can download a GNOME system image to run it through a virtual machine. The provided image is designed to work with the Boxes application.

Here’s a list of the most notable features of this 46th edition:

  • Improvement in search experience in Nautilus,
  • Updates to major applications,
  • Access to OneDrive files,
  • Enhanced GNOME remote desktop experience with the introduction of a new dedicated remote connection option,
  • Notifications can be expanded/collapsed,
  • Shortcut for launching a new application,
  • Redesigned settings with new panels and options,
  • Various accessibility improvements,
  • Enhancement of user interface sharpness and font rendering,
  • Experimental support for variable refresh rate,
  • New fallback avatars (if you don’t specify an avatar for your user account, GNOME generates one for you).


You’ll find all the details in this official presentation of GNOME 46, “Katmandu.” Finally, the GNOME project specifies that the code name “Katmandu” was chosen in recognition of the “incredible” work done by the organizers of GNOME Asia.
