gnome-shell (3.36.1+git20200417-1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Team upload

  [ Simon McVittie ]
  * New upstream snapshot from gnome-3-36 branch (3.36.1-37-g18a5c7436)
    - Fix translated app folder names in overview (LP: #1872434)
    - Fix misaligned spinner in lock screen
    - Fix warning when a polkit dialog is reset
    - Pluralize prompt correctly when asking whether to revert a display
      setup change
    - Update Finnish translation
  * Bump build-dependency on libpulse-dev to 13.
    Apparently stable's libpulse0 (in a partial upgrade) causes gnome-shell
    to hang, so presumably we need this newer version for something.
    (Closes: #958025)
  * Bump AT-SPI dependency to a contemporary version.
    As with libpulse, there's anecdotal evidence that the version from
    Debian 10 is too old to work in practice. (Closes: #958025)

  [ Laurent Bigonville ]
  * Move the D-Bus interfaces description files to the -common package.
    This will make it easier to build some packages, like gnome-terminal,
    that have a search provider

  [ Jeremy Bicha ]
  * Have gnome-shell-extension-prefs recommend chrome-gnome-shell
    (LP: #1866841)
    - gnome-shell-extension-prefs recommends visiting to install extensions but that
      requires chrome-gnome-shell to be installed
    - GNOME Software 3.36 no longer offers installing
      GNOME Shell extensions
