GNOME 3.20 represents first major release of this Linux UI shell, since September 2015 and eWeek offers overview of key new features.

GNOME 3.20 is the first major update to the GNOME desktop environment in 2016, officially becoming generally available on March 23—and since that date it has been slowly trickling into the repositories of Linux distributions. GNOME 3.20 is code-named Delhi in honor of the GNOME Asia event that will be held in Delhi, India, April 21-24. The new GNOME release is the first since GNOME 3.18 in September 2015, and it provides incremental improvements. An overarching update across multiple applications in GNOME 3.20 are new shortcut screens that provide users with a simple list of keyboard shortcuts to perform common actions in a given application. As was the case with GNOME 3.18, the File utility in GNOME 3.20 benefits from usability improvements. This time, the improvements are around searching and finding files on the system. The Web application is also improved, with improved session restore capabilities. In this slide show, eWEEK takes a look at the key features of the GNOME 3.20 desktop update.
