Features of Ubuntu GNOME 17.04


Select GNOME changes since Ubuntu 16.10


  • Ubuntu GNOME 17.04 proudly features GNOME 3.24. Read the official 3.22 and 3.24 release notes to see what's new! Or take a few minutes to watch the GNOME 3.24 release video.

  • GNOME 3.24 introduces Night Light which can automatically reduce the blue light emitted by your computer screen at sunset or whenever you choose.

  • The Calendar app now has a Week view.

  • For stability, the Evolution stack is still at its GNOME 3.22 versions.

  • A few apps are still at their GNOME 3.20 versions: the Files app nautilus (1635988) and the Terminal app (1636666). See the manifest for specific version numbers of included software.

  • The Software app has been updated to 3.22 and now supports GNOME Shell extensions and Flatpak.

  • Flatpak 0.8 is now installed by default. Ubuntu Snap (snapd) is still installed. Both Flatpak and Ubuntu Snap are alternative app installation frameworks.

  • The chrome-gnome-shell system helper is installed by default. Visit to install the required browser addon to use the site to manage your GNOME Shell extensions.

  • The tracker search indexing engine is now sandboxed.

  • Several apps are no longer installed for new installs, but will not be automatically removed from existing installs: brasero (a CD burning app), evolution (email suite), seahorse (GPG and SSH key management app), xdiagnose (display troubleshooting app). These apps are still available for install in the Software app.
  • gnome-icon-theme is no longer installed for new installs. The default icons have been provided by the Adwaita icon theme instead for the past 2 years. This might cause issues for some older apps that still try to use old stock icon names. If this affects an app you use, please file a bug and install gnome-icon-theme as a workaround.

  • gconf is no longer installed by default since it has long been superseded by gsettings. Note that statistics and preferences for the aisleriot card games will be reset when upgrading to 17.04.

  • The brand new GNOME Recipes app is available for install but is not installed by default.

  • GNOME Games (gnome-games-app) is also available for install.

  • For other changes since Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, see the 16.10 Release Notes.

Other Software Updates


  • LibreOffice 5.3 is included.

  • The Linux kernel has been updated to 4.10.

  • For new installs, a swap file will be used by default instead of a swap partition.

  • The default DNS resolver is now systemd-resolved.

  • The experimental wayland session is included but is not the default. If your computer supports open source graphics drivers and you would like to try Wayland, log out, choose GNOME on Wayland from the gear menu below the password entry, and log back in.

  • Many other bugs have been fixed. Where possible, bug fixes have been backported to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Volunteers are requested to identify other bug fixes that can be provided to 16.04 as Stable Release Updates.
