I just dug in. You can use the "disks" utility in gnome3 to mark your
partitions/drives as automount. This also lets you specify where you
want to mount them, properties etc. 

I think this should be somewhere in the release notes too. The GUI
basically adds the entries according to your configuration to fstab,
nothing special :)
