Tomboy 0.6.0 Released
Posted on: 03/05/2007 10:15 PM

This email is to announce Tomboy 0.6.0! This is the beginning of the stable 0.6.x series and will coincide with GNOME 2.18.x.

Tomboy has been branched as "gnome-2-18" for stable (0.6.x) development. SVN trunk is now open for new feature development (0.7.x).

Tomboy is a simple note-taking application designed to be unobtrusive and friendly, while supporting inter-note links similar to a WikiWikiWeb to help you organize your notes and ideas. It can run either as a Gnome panel applet or a notification tray-icon.

See the website at for downloads, screenshots, and more information.
