Havoc Pennington: What's New in GNOME 2 for Users

(Other stories by Havoc Pennington)
"Lots of rumors have been going around that GNOME 2 won't have any new user-visible features, but while this was the plan and would have resulted in releasing sooner (cough), it's not really what happened. ;-) So here's some hype for you. I'll try to keep this page up to date, send me additions/fixes.

This document is as best I can manage about features that are already in the code or almost certainly will be, rather than hoped-for features. Still, some things may end up in 2.0.1/2.2/whatever, one can't say for sure. This list is totally unofficial/informal, which is why it's on my personal web site, and so don't take any of this too seriously. Also, I'm writing in January 2002, and the chances are that by February this will be outdated.

GNOME 2 devel is tracked on the dotplan site (they also have screenshots there). I'm too lazy too make more screenshots but if people send me links to shots for the stuff mentioned here I'll add them.

I listed the stuff you've probably heard already first, just so you have to keep reading to the end..."
