Unfortunately this new focus on fullscreen apps — which will continue through future GNOME versions to include quite a number of other GNOME applications, provides no discoverable way to revert to a standard windowed multitasking model.
Users both old and new have raised their voices in complaint regarding GNOME 3, but the project's lead developers insist everyone will get used to it. Do they care about their users?"

A basic changelog on the newly redesigned website is available at http://windowmaker.org/news.php."
