Good news, everyone! There is a new tiling layout, but the old one is gone!
After much deliberation, we have concluded that Material Shell and Pop Shell are no longer viable. The Material Shell developer has been having trouble keeping up with recent Mutter and GNOME Shell changes for awhile now. System76 is only maintaining Pop Shell for Pop!_OS 22.04 which uses GNOME 42. They are currently focused on their upcoming Cosmic Desktop Environment completely written from scratch in Rust. In both cases, some issues are due to regressions that do not affect anything other than extensions like this.
If you decide to keep Material Shell or Pop Shell installed or install them via other means, no official support will be provided.
Without further ado, let’s get on with it already!
- Material Shell layout has been renamed to Tiling layout using Forge and Space Bar
- Use Gnome 4x UI Improvements for modified layouts for consistency
- Improve code utilizing Pylint
- General fixes and improvements
Please note the updated optional dependencies. For testing purposes, please make sure all extensions are installed.
