Try Gnome 3.12 Right Now!

Fedora 20 [Running] - Oracle VM VirtualBox_001

Itching to get your hands on the latest goodies from Gnome?  Look no further…  If you’d like to see the project’s latest efforts, including getting the best look at the latest Gnome core apps (Music, Weather, Maps, Videos), Matthias Clasen has a special gift for you.  He’s made a special live CD containing a complete Gnome 3.12 atop Fedora 20.

From the announcement:

I’ve pushed 3.12.0 modulesets. It all built fine here. The only module where I’m sad that I haven’t gotten a 3.12.0 tarball yet is gnome-tweak-tool – John Stowers said he’d do one, we’ll see.

I’ve also produced a live cd and uploaded it here:
ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/misc/testing/GNOME312-LiveCD.iso

It is based on Fedora 20, with Richards copr builds. It is not perfect – epiphany is crashing for me when run off the live image (works fine outside), and gnome-sound-recorder and polari are not included (not in rawhide yet :-( ). But most other things work on the live cd, certainly good enough to qualify as successful smoke testing.

We’re sure that you’re absolutely giddy and want to get started right away, so here’s your chance.  Make sure to check out the source links at the bottom, and check out this screenshot we’ve taken.  Handsome wallpaper!
