GNOME 2.28 - the dawn of a new era

,----[ Quote ]
| Version 2.28 sees the team behind the GNOME desktop 
| environment for Linux and Unix warming up for version 
| 3.0, scheduled for a March 2010 release. The current 
| release continues the tradition of dotting lots of i's 
| and crossing plenty of t's, but also brings a new broom 
| to a few nooks and crannies.


Linux garden gets a new GNOME with version 2.28

| GNOME 2.28 represents a moderately compelling 
| incremental improvement. WebKit-based Epiphany is 
| definitely worth a try, and I'm finally starting to 
| warm up to Empathy thanks to the bug fixing and user 
| interface refinements delivered in this release. The 
| enhanced Bluetooth support is also a welcome addition. 
| Version 2.28 is a little bit light on new features 
| relative to some previous GNOME releases, but that's 
| understandable as a lot of development effort is 
| currently focused on preparing for the next-generation 
| GNOME desktop.


First Look: GNOME 2.28.0

,----[ Quote ]
| GNOME 2.28.0 is barely out the door and it's starting 
| to make its way into distributions, but the developers 
| aren't planning any vacations. They already started 
| work on GNOME 2.30, which, depending on the 
| advancements in the platform, might be crowned as the 
| next major release, labeled with the 3.0 version 
| number. If the developers aren't happy with the 
| progress made, they might wait until GNOME 2.32 to 
| apply that version bump. Either way, we will know about 
| it by March 2010, when 2.30 will be released. Should 
| they decide that it doesn't stand up to their 
| expectations, we will probably receive GNOME 3.0 in 
| September 2010.



Celebrating the release of GNOME 2.28!

,----[ Quote ]
| Today, the GNOME Project celebrates the release of GNOME
| 2.28, the latest version of the popular, multi-platform
| free desktop environment and of its developer platform.
| Released on schedule, to the day, GNOME 2.28 builds on top
| of a long series of successful six months releases to
| offer the best experience to users and developers.
