Comment 1 Audrey Yeena Toskin 2021-03-15 16:59:59 UTC
Yes, I'm tracking this in Bug #1936204. I'd decided to set the dependencies to `gnome-shell < 3.39` so that Rawhide users couldn't install the extension while it's still broken. Hopefully the upstream updates soon.

Comment 2 Audrey Yeena Toskin 2021-04-02 19:45:21 UTC
There is a pull request upstream which purports to fix GNOME 40 compatibility.

If it is not merged today, or tomorrow, I will test and build it myself based on the contributor's commits, and push an update to the Freon package before the f34 final freeze.

Comment 3 Audrey Yeena Toskin 2021-04-05 16:36:05 UTC
GitHub user brianegan's pull request looked good to me, but still hasn't merged upstream yet, so I made an updated build of Freon based on the unmerged commit. The updated package is testing in Bodhi now.

Let me know if you see any remaining issues.
