GNOME 3.20 brings a lot many new features and goodies for the users of this open-source desktop environment for GNU/Linux OS. The GNOME 3.20 will be made available to the users in the coming weeks.

The release of GNOME 3.21.1 will be followed by the release of GNOME 3.21.2 on May 25, GNOME 3.21.3 on June 22 and the fourth GNOME 3.21.4 on July 20, 2016.
