Hi there,
I just updated my system to Ubuntu 16.10 / GNOME Shell 3.20.4 and I see that this extension does not work anymore:


How can I help you to make it work on 16.10?

To install it, first do:

gsettings set disable-extension-version-validation "true"

But, to make the change at the extension level, making it work with new gnome-shell version is just a matter of editing metadata.json I guess.


Yes, what is strange is that the metadata.json file already contains 3.20:

	"shell-version": [
		"3.20", "3.22"

I guess the version uploaded to GNOME Shell website is older...
