Gnome Shell 3.6 Beta is finally available and we are going to cover some of the top features in this release:
1. Support for HarfBuzz
HarfBuzz is a text shaping engine that is use for implementing OpenType fonts. This has been finally merged with pango and will be avialable in Gnome 3.6.
2. Better Magnifier
For people with diablities, Gnome has always made a desktop for everyone. Accessibilty has been one of the top features, and Gnome magnifier had a tight integration with desktop. With Gnome 3.6, this integration goes further, with some extra features like configuration of various colour effects, zoom enhancements and inverted colors.
3. Better activities overview

5 . Enterprise login for office and work networks
Gnome 3.6 stable will be released this September with all these features implemented and bugs squashed.
