These are the development components that are part of the development
“platform” for the GNOME Desktop environment, an intuitive and
attractive desktop.
This metapackage depends on the recommended components to develop and
build applications using GNOME technologies. Most of these components
have long-term API stability guarantees.

meta-gnome3 (1:3.30+1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Team upload
[ Michael Biebl ]
* gnome-core: Drop anacron (Closes: #913583)
[ Laurent Bigonville ]
* Bump versions for the 3.30 release
* debian/ Switch from xul-ext-ublock-origin to
webext-ublock-origin, the former is a transitional package (Closes:
* debian/ Bump Standards-Version to 4.3.0 (no further changes)
* debian/ Add pulseaudio-module-bluetooth to the gnome-core
dependencies, both bluez and g-bluetooth are already pulled (Closes:
* debian/ gnome: Suggest gnome-remote-desktop, this is used to
share the desktop on wayland, but it's not ready for primetime yet
(missing SSL,...)
[ Simon McVittie ]
* Set Rules-Requires-Root to no
* Exclude gjs apps on s390x.
These apps are not available there.
* Allow gnome-flashback instead of -session and -shell on s390x.
s390x doesn't have a working version of gjs, and GNOME Shell needs
gjs, so we can't have the GNOME desktop there; install the most
closely-related desktop we can instead.
* Allow lightdm as an alternative to gdm3 on s390x.
gdm3's greeter (login prompt) is GNOME Shell with a special
configuration, so it needs gjs.
* Revert "Build-Depends on gjs"

meta-gnome3 (1:3.22+13) unstable; urgency=medium
* gnome-api-docs: Drop libgtksourceview-3.0-doc (to match platform-devel)
* platform-devel: Add meson
* gnome: Drop gimp and inkscape (Closes: #883440, #883441)
2018-11-05 - Jeremy Bicha <>
meta-gnome3 (1:3.22+12) unstable; urgency=medium
* gnome-core: Allow epiphany-browser to satisfy the browser dependency
since the other browsers don't build on all architectures
* platform-devel: Drop yelp-tools; it's not needed for meson apps
* platform-devel: Drop libgtksourceview-3.0-dev:
- Most GNOME apps don't need this and there's now gtksourceview4
* platform-devel: Drop libgtk2.0-dev since gtk3 is recommended
* platform-devel: Drop packages that libgtk-3-dev depends on:
- libatk1.0-dev, libgdk-pixbuf2.0-dev, libglib2.0-dev, libpango1.0-dev
* platform-devel: Drop libcogl-dev and libclutter-1.0-dev
- since libclutter-gtk-1.0-dev already depends on them
* api-docs: Drop libgail-doc: it's for gtk2

meta-gnome3 (1:3.22+11) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Laurent Bigonville ]
* debian/ Make gnome-core depend against libproxy1-plugin-webkit,
this is needed for libproxy to interpret pac files. Webkit is already
loaded by other part of the desktop as well and has better security
support than mozjs, pick this one over libproxy1-plugin-mozjs for now.
[ Jeremy Bicha ]
* Make gnome-platform-devel arch:all
2018-10-05 - Jeremy Bicha <>
meta-gnome3 (1:3.22+10) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Simon McVittie ]
* Switch Vcs-* from GNOME team svn to GNOME team git
* d/gbp.conf: Add
* gnome-core: Drop deprecated gvfs-bin, add libglib2.0-bin instead
(Closes: #877741)
[ Jeremy Bicha ]
* gnome: Drop libgtk2-perl, debconf's GNOME backend uses gtk3 now
* gnome: Drop fonts-noto-color-emoji, gnome-core already pulls this
in via gnome-characters
* gnome-games: Temporarily demote aisleriot to Recommends  since we're
removing it from armel because guile doesn't build nicely there
(Closes: #909677)
* Make gnome-devel arch:all
* Build-Depends on gjs. In preparation for gjs' removal from s390x (#909536)
let's ensure that the gnome & gnome-core packages have satisifiable
