This month, we will release GNOME 3.24, and alongside, GNOME recipes will have its 1.0 release.
To the finish line
Since my last update, we have focused on completing our 1.0 goals. The last thing that we needed was to get enough contributed recipes to replace all the test data with actual content. And we’ve made it, thanks to the cooks in the GNOME community, we have plenty of great recipes now:

What next ?
1.0 will not be the end of the road for Recipes. There’s a number of exciting features on the post-1.0 roadmap.
For the next leg of the journey, we will welcome some Outreachy interns who will help us to add useful functionality, from unit conversion to shopping list export.
