GNOME 3.15.90

Hi all,

a few days late, but here it is: GNOME 3.15.90 is now available.

This is the first beta release of the 3.15 development, and it is a big release.
All of the big features that we have been working on have made it into this
release, in more or less complete form:
 * A new GNOME shell theme
 * Redesigned notifications in GNOME shell
 * Codec installation integrated in gnome-software
 * Login screen on Wayland
 * New UI in eog
 * UI improvements in nautilus
and many more.

To compile GNOME 3.15.90, you can use the jhbuild [1] modulesets [2]
(which use the exact tarball versions from the official release).

We are working on fixing the creation of vm images by our continous integration
infrastructure, [3], so that you can again use these as another
way of testing the latest code.


The release notes that describe the changes between 3.15.4 and 3.15.90
are available. Go read them to learn what's new in this release:
