Posted on: 02/07/2007 11:38 AM

This is to announce the Gimmie version 0.2.3 release. Gimmie is a unique desktop organizer designed to allow easy interaction with all the applications, contacts, documents and other resources you use every day. Gimmie can be run as a stand-alone application or as a GNOME Panel-applet.
