A fair amount has hit Precise already, including Gnome Shell. More to come, I'm sure (all those 3.3.92's will be 3.4's by and by). Everything is working quite well.

The questions I'm currently busy with finding out:

Web - how do I make button 4 and 5 work "properly"
Web - how do I get a bookmarks toolbar or something similarly usefull going to actually use some of my 100+ bookmarks
Contacts - how do I delete contacts
Epiphany - the meta-contact-feature is gone?
Documents - JS-Error
Tracker - going crazy?
Nautilus - is there any way of getting the Sidebar Bookmarks and "Computer" Bookmarks merged and sorted?

Oh well, there's still something held back on the upgrade, so I'll just wait and see if some issues are resolved. Right now the usual "firefox + pidgin + marlin" is doing the way better job, imho. Love the gnome-shell, though.

Acknowledged. Posted this so folks would know not all will hit precise due to LTS.

Well, I said everything was working well, but I don't use any of those apps (except nautilus, of course). I use Thunderbird's address book, Firefox, and for search nothing beats Recoll IMO.

I really am liking Gnome Shell. I need to use Windows a fair amount for work, and I find myself throwing the mouse pointer to the upper left corner a lot :KS

ACK. Only thing I've hit is Ctrl+^ (switch between windows of the same application) does not work anymore after upgrading to precise yesterday. I've opened https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-shell/+bug/967008, can anyone confirm or object?

I just wish all of the Gnome Shell extensions could keep up this quickly. I'm tired of losing them all every time I update. :)

Most of them will work if you just go into their metadata.json file and add "3.4.0". I've only had a couple that wouldn't work that way. I'm sure once 3.4 has really settled in things will be modified fairly quickly.

Yeah, afaik precise will have most of gnome 3.4, just a few apps like totem won't be.

No 3.4 here yet (unless it's disguised as 3.3.92 :-))

A lot of them I've had work that way, but I've had a few that won't work at all.

What I'm really curious about is the smooth scrolling. Is that coming to 12.04 or will it come later? Also will the ricotz ppa contain the stuff that doesn't make it to 12.04?

I have smooth scrolling here now, most obviously in nautilus & gedit, actually one thing that mysteriously breaks down every once & a while with no apparent cause.

Enabled proposed updates and got a bunch of the gnome 3.4 stuff. working great so far, no issues.

This already works for me in gtk3 apps like nautilus, gedit, and ubuntu software center.

Is there any way to force the Gnome Shell Extensions web site to let me download an extension so I can try adding my version to metadata.json? Right now it won't let me install anything that isn't made for my version.

Good question - I haven't been able to figure out how. You'd think that the authors of the extensions would be able to add "3.4.0" to their metadata files. I'm sure they will over the next few days, now that it's a final stable release and not the developing moving target it's been for a while.
