The latest itteration of Design Suite was successful using the latest stable release of Gnome 3.10.x. This time the testing went much better with some fixes to address. The goal to include applications with the style of Adobe Creative Suite is nearly complete with: Gimp (Photoshop), Inkscape (Illustrator and Framework), Scribus(InDesign), Premiere (PiTiVi), Acrobat (Evince, PDFShuffle, Xournal), in addition of Paints, Blender 3D and Hugin. Looking at the future release, here are some possible updates to implements:
- Add more categories for Gnome Shell (see How to enable categories in Gnome 3.8 Shell application menu),
- More plugins for Gimp notably gimp-separate+ for rudimentary CMYK support although Scribus does a better job,
- Inclusion of Tweak Tools. I personally think that application should be part of Setting Tools and possibly renamed as Advanced Settings,
- More Gnome 3.12 features

The fact Opus is the audio standard prompted to slowly convert some of music collection I have. Reading Auphonic website about the comparison against MP3, the sound quality is even noticeable meaning it is very usable online. I will see Opus use in much broader audience, its patent-free advantage is a welcome change toward audio industry especially mobile devices.
I hope upstream will switch to that format.

The category is much better structured in, for instance, Graphics grouping sub-categories like Photography. Currently, Gnome Software is still in progress but functional enough to do install/update/remove.
