It wasn’t very long ago that Boxes was introduced as a ‘preview release’ in GNOME 3.4. At that time it was extremely unstable, unreliable and lacked essential features. The project has come a long way since then. The talk will start with a brief introduction and history lesson. All the new features will then be introduced and demoed, followed by overview of all upcoming features.
