GNOME 2.16.0 Beta 2 (2.15.91) has been released:

Yes it is here. The second Beta release which leading up to imminent release of 2.16.0 has hit the shelves and is going fast. Come and get yours before all the bugs are filed and you are left out in the cold. Wouldn't your mom be proud if you told her "I participated!". Speaking of which, I would like to dedicate this release to the person who made it possible for me to do releases. It is her birthday. Happy Birthday Mom!

We are pleased to announce the release of GNOME 2.16.0 Beta 2 (2.15.91). This is one of the last releases in the 2.15 development series and represents a release that is now API/ABI, feature, string and UI frozen. This means that we're pretty close to the final 2.16.0 release. The GNOME contributors are now busy fixing the most important bugs that are still out there, localizing the whole desktop or updating our documentation.

You can still make a difference and contribute to the best GNOME release ever! Do you see all the 2.15.91 tarballs? Go download them. Go compile them. Go test them. And go hack on them, document them, translate them, fix them.
