This package, although not fixing my memory leak issues, helped resolve the performance issue I'd been experiencing for AGES since the recent updates to GNOME. Combined with mutter-performance, it really feels like I'm actually using the full capability of my hardware rather than the cheap laptop I'd supposedly upgraded from. All that remains is that pesky memory leak that GNOME is infamous for, I wonder what could be causing it?

This package does not help fixing the animation lag (reported here: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-shell/-/issues/3760 )

@phush0 Restart your machine and build the packages again. The packages built successfully in my machine when I updated them.

There is error in tests with latest change. Have to use --nocheck to install correctly

@x0rzavi Removing mr1862 should fix that but if you remove that, then there's no reason to use this package :) Maybe I shall search more mr patches other than that, but I haven't found it yet.

I'm facing random gnome-shell crash on lock screen. It happens only at times like when you close your laptop lid and open it up, or suspend for long and then wake it up. Cross checked too, that its not something to do with extensions or themes, also everything is fine with the main repo packages. This package works wonders :D but this bug keeps annoying me.

Was the version number supposed to be bumped to 42.1?

Wow, after I installed the package and rebooted, I went to the bathroom. Now that I'm back, you've already updated it with the fix! Thanks so much for your excellent work
