GNOME 41.rc released!

Hi,

GNOME 41.rc is now available. Remember this is the
end of this development cycle; enjoy it as fast as you can, the final
release is scheduled for this coming week!

The corresponding flatpak runtimes have been published to Flathub.
If you’d like to target the GNOME 41 platform, you can test your
application against the 41beta branch of the Flathub Beta
repository.

An installer image (built from scratch using freedesktop-sdk 21.08 as a
base) is also available for testing and porting extensions:

https://os.gnome.org/download/41.rc/gnome_os_installer_41.rc.iso

This is meant to be installed in a virtual machine with EFI support
(such as the GNOME Boxes version available on Flathub). You can also
try to install it on bare metal but be warned that hardware support is
very limited (join #gnome-os channel at irc.gnome.org if you are interested).

We remind you we are string frozen, no string changes may be made
without confirmation from the l10n team (gnome-i18n@) and notification
to both the release team and the GNOME Documentation Project
(gnome-doc-list@).

Hard code freeze is also in place, no source code changes can be made
without approval from the release-team. Translation and documentation
can continue.

If you want to compile GNOME 41.rc, you can use the official
BuildStream project snapshot. Thanks to BuildStream’s build
sandbox, it should build reliably for you regardless of the
dependencies on your host system:
