GNOME 3.16 RC Available; Final Version to be Released on 25th March

As expected, the GNOME development team, through Frederic Peters, has announced earlier today, March 18, the immediate availability for testing of the GNOME 3.16 RC (Release Candidate) desktop environment. The release is dubbed internally GNOME 3.15.92.
Users are urged to test the release and report bugs immediately in order for the GNOME devs to fix them before the final GNOME 3.16 version gets out on March 25, 2015.
