Gnome Pilot 2.0.15 has been released:

Gnome Pilot lets you synchronize your gnome applications with your PalmOS based devices. It can be used to back up your data, install files, or to synchronize your contacts, calendar, and memos with Evolution.

This is primarily a bugfix release, to patch issues that cropped up with the new features introduced in version 2.0.14.

Many thanks to the users who've helped by reporting and patching bugs, and as ever to the translation team.

bugzilla.gnome issues fixed in this release:
- #357602. Fix memory leak in the usbfs scanning code (with
thanks to Brian Warner)
- #362565. Add a 400ms pause between HAL detection of a USB
device and the first attempt to sync. Several
devices were reported to reset themselves if
communication was attempted too soon after the
first appearance of the USB device.
- #365181. Fix a long-standing bug that probably turned up
now because of the multiple attempts to add a new
pilot due to #362565. Avoid accessing freed memory
when the 'add pilot' dialog is opened multiple times.
- #364589. With thanks to Glynn Foster. Tweaks to window
placement to support multihead displays. Also,
added missing description to .server file for
panel applet.

Other changes:
- Maintainership has passed from JP Rosevear to Matt Davey.
Many thanks to JP for stepping in when gnome-pilot could
otherwise have died a nasty death by abandonment.
