GNOME 3.6 includes many smaller changes, including bug fixes as well as enhancements. Together, these add up to a general improvement in the user experience. The following are just a few examples.
The mnemonics underlines that become visible when you press Alt wait for a split second before appearing now, to avoid flickering when Alt+Tab or Alt+PrintScreen is used.
The appearance of the drop-down calendar that is accessible from the top bar has been refined, making it easier to read, better looking, and easier to interact with.
Password dialogs when mounting remote locations or encrypted drives are now presented in the same system style as other password dialogs.
In the Activities Overview, a clearer highlight effect has been added to the active workspace.
New keyboard shortcuts have been added for changing the size of windows, including Super+Left, Super+Right, Super+Up, Super+Down.
The access points in the network menu are sorted by strength, making it easier to find networks that are close by.
For people who like, we have added something fun. You'll need to be quick with your mouse: test to see if you can find it.
Modal dialogs have been updated with a new style. Instead of dropping down like a curtain, they expand from the middle of the window, which is now shaded while they are open. This makes it easier to focus on them.
