Mozilla Thunderbird

Mozilla Thunderbird, provided by the thunderbird package, has been added in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1 and offers an alternative to the Evolution mail and newsgroup client.

Support for Quad-buffered OpenGL Stereo Visuals

GNOME Shell and the Mutter compositing window manager now allow you to use quad-buffered OpenGL stereo visuals on supported hardware. You need to have the NVIDIA Display Driver version 337 or later installed to be able to properly use this feature.

Online Account Providers

A new GSettings key org.gnome.online-accounts.whitelisted-providers has been added to GNOME Online Accounts (provided by the gnome-online-accounts package). This key provides a list of online account providers that are explicitly allowed to be loaded on startup. By specifying this key, system administrators can enable appropriate providers or selectively disable others.
