GNOME Shell versions by Distro

Posted on

Looking into GNOME extension development I quickly became aware that they are dependant on GNOME Shell versions. While I can easily determine which version of GNOME Shell one of my computers is running, it becomes more work when I had to consider multiple Ubuntu versions as well as what others might be using.

Since I couldn't find this information in one place, I decided to put together a table of some Linux distros, their recent releases, and which GNOME Shell version they are using. Hopefully someone else may find this helpful as well.

Distro Version GNOME Shell
Debian 10 “Buster” v3.30
Debian 11 “Bullseye” v3.38
Debian 12 “Bookworm” v43
Fedora Workstation 36 v42
Fedora Workstation 37 v43
Fedora Workstation 38 v44
Ubuntu 20.04 “Focal” v3.36
Ubuntu 22.04 “Jammy” v42
Ubuntu 23.04 “Lunar” v44
