GARNOME 2.12.0 has been released:
Incorporating the GNOME 2.12.0 Desktop and Developer Platform, together with a host of third-party GNOME packages, Bindings and the Mono(tm) Platform -- this release truly is the best performing release we've ever had.
The changes between 2.10 and 2.12 are massive -- the GNOME Release Notes on http://www.gnome.org
will give you the full rundown, but in a nutshell.
* DBus and HAL are now being used to power GNOME 'under the hood'.
* glib/gtk+ 2.8.x with cairo 1.0 makes GNOME look 'better than ever'.
* Improvements to Nautilus to make your files more accessible than ever before.
* Hundreds of fixes and performance improvements across the entire desktop.
In short, if you're not running GNOME 2.12.0, you should be -- and GARNOME gives you the perfect excuse to jump right in, all without affecting your existing system.
It should be noted that GARNOME wouldn't be possible without the dedicated band of testers that have continued to support the project -- thanks to everyone who has contributed patches, bug reports or comments during the last release phase -- your support has been invaluable.
