On 5/10, ArcMenu – an extension for GNOME Shell that provides an application menu and panel shortcuts – released its version 33 release. With GNOME Shell 3.34 support, and the addition of several features.
For a large number of users, the use of extensions in GNOME Shell is indispensable. Although not maintained by the project itself, they provide functionality that, for many (like me), is just what GNOME Shell needed to become the ideal graphical environment.

I have been using GNOME Shell as my default graphical interface for just over a month, and since then I have never used ArcMenu-style menus. I use GNOME Shell in its default layout. However, after reading and seeing the new features of ArcMenu I was very tempted to test. Do you use ArcMenu, or some similar extension? What did you think of the new features?
