GNOME 45 Alpha Released


GNOME 45.alpha is now available. This is the first unstable release leading to the 45 series.

Download the GNOME 45.alpha sources.
Review the list of updated modules and changes.
Use the official BuildStream project snapshot to compile GNOME 45.alpha.

A GNOME OS install image is not available for this release due but you can get a Nightly image from which is a close approximation of the alpha release.


This release is a snapshot of development code. Although it is buildable and usable, it is primarily intended for testing and hacking purposes.

For more information about the 45 release, the full schedule, the official module lists and the proposed module lists, please see our wiki page:

@alatiera Thanx for the heads up. I see that there are updates to modules. Is it possible to be updated with a release targetting the 45th edition?

Any idea how we can install and test on Archlinux?

Here you go How to Install the Latest GNOME Alpha/Beta Versions on Arch Linux - 9to5Linux

Any change to Damned Lies should be filed as an issue: Issues · Infrastructure / damned-lies · GitLab

Thanx for the recommendation, done:

How can I update on Gentoo?

Ask this guy if you have Twitter.

You should ask on a Gentoo forum: GNOME is not responsible for downstream packaging.


it is there now since earlier this week, testing on Arch with Fabians unstable packages for Arch :slight_smile:
fabiscafe/fcgu: FCGU is a repository for PKGBUILDs of GNOME pre-releases. This project is not affiliated with Arch Linux in any way. We only create PKGBUILDs based on the original upstream work (as close as possible). - fcgu - thats on Alpha #2 now
