The GNOME Project is proud to present GNOME 3.6, the third update to the 3.x series. This latest version of GNOME 3 includes a number of new features and enhancements, as well as many bug fixes and minor improvements. Together, they represent a significant upgrade to the GNOME 3 user experience.
Andreas Nilsson, President of the GNOME Foundation, said: “The GNOME Foundation is proud to present this latest GNOME release, and I would like to congratulate the GNOME community on its achievement.” He described the release as “an important milestone in our mission to bring a free and open computing environment to everyone.”

Highlights for this release include:
  • Big improvements to notifications, including a redesigned Message Tray, smarter notifications, and other tweaks and refinements.
  • An enhanced Activities Overview with an improved layout.
  • A greatly enhanced Files application, with functional file search, a new Recent location, redesigned interface and lots of bug fixes and handy new features.
  • Integrated Input Sources, which makes inputting different character sets (eg. Japanese or Chinese) fast and easy.
  • Accessibility on demand, meaning that universal access features like the Orca screen reader can be enabled with the push of a button.
  • A new Lock Screen. This provides an attractive view when the device is locked, plus handy functionality like media controls and notifications.

Most of the extension is not updated for Gnome Shell 3.6 yet, maybe in future. So official extensions are updated for Gnome Shell 3.6 and available to install.
Some people having problems with their extensions like user-themes extension problem. So now there will not be any problem with Gnome Shell 3.6/3.5/3.4 versions.

That's it
The Ubuntu GNOME Remix is a mostly pure GNOME desktop experience built from the Ubuntu repositories. The Quantal Quetzal Alpha Release of Ubuntu GNOME Remix 12.10 is a developer snapshot to give you a very early glance at the next version of Ubuntu GNOME Remix.

ubuntu gnome

Included software:
  • The Ubuntu GNOME Remix ships with the first GNOME 3.6 beta, GNOME 3.5.90. Some GNOME apps will not be upgraded to 3.6 for the 12.10 release. If you want these, try the GNOME3 PPA
  • Web (epiphany-browser) is the GNOME web browser. Web does not support Flash in Ubuntu 12.10 (1001229). If you need Flash, try Firefox orChromium
  • Abiword is the GNOME word processor and Gnumeric is the GNOME spreadsheet app. LibreOffice is available for install if you want it. 
  • Boxes is not included as it didn't seem to be working. Also, qemu-linaro (qemu-kvm-spice) doesn't built on i386 in Ubuntu. qemu-kvm with spice support does build in Debian though on i386. (928432
  • Documents is not included as it currently depends on LibreOffice, at least as packaged in Debian & Ubuntu. 
  • Software (gnome-package-kit) is included in this alpha release. It also includes its own update manager. You can install updates by opening Software and clicking Check for Updates in the Software app menu. 
  • The Ubuntu One installer is included in this alpha release. Ubuntu One itself is not included by default as it doesn't feel like a GNOME app. 
  • GNOME Classic (gnome-panel 3) is included but GNOME Shell is the default session if your hardware supports it. If you want the GNOME Classic with-effects session to work, install compiz. 
  • If you want Ubuntu-style notifications in GNOME Classic, install notify-osd
Known issues:
  • As is to be expected, at this early stage of the release process, there are some significant known bugs that developers may run into with the Quantal Alpha Release. The ones we know about at this point (and some of the workarounds), are documented here so you don't need to spend time reporting these bugs again:
  • The installer is barely readable with the default Adwaita theme (1044788). 
  • When you are in ubiquity you may see two pointers. 
  • Shutdown buttons may not work. 
  • The login screen persists after log in when GDM is run in fallback mode instead of the fancy GNOME Shell mode (BGO:683068). 
  • The system status menu (the "cog" indicator at the far right in GNOME Classic) doesn't show up in some cases or display correctly when using the default Adwaita theme or the accessibility themes (975563). 
  • We'd like to move Ubuntu gsettings overrides to ubuntu-default-settings (1039792). 
  • A separate ubuntu-control-center will probably not make it into Ubuntu 12.10 but is still a goal for 13.04. 
  • GNOME Shell is only at 3.5.4 because newer versions require GDM to be running. Most Ubuntu users currently running GNOME Shell use LightDM instead and it's not really feasible to make installing gnome-shell switch the default display manager. (BGO:683060
  • Symbolic icons in gnome-shell 3.5.91 will be broken unless this bug is fixed (1001229
  • We need a ubiquity-slideshow-ubuntu-gnome. 
  • We need a plymouth-theme-ubuntu-gnome-logo and plymouth-theme-ubuntu-gnome-text.
  • We also want a blue version of the purple Ubuntu isolinux art. This is what you see when first booting a Ubuntu image.
