GARNOME 2.8.0 (the 'at 3am, time is eternal' release.)

The latest 'somewhat toned down' version of GARNOME distribution for those who want a new version of GNOME for regular day-to-day use, but don't want to wait until your distribution catches up, is now out and about.

This release incorporates the GNOME 2.8.0 Desktop & Developer Platform, as well as plenty of new third-party package updates and funkey new features.

Also, the GARNOME homepage has had a bit of a touch-up since the last release, which hopefully means it contains more relevant content than ever before.

The new homepage can be seen at:

Highlights for 2.8.0:

  • A spanking new theme: Glider, by Link DuPont, based on the Smooth gtk engine by Andrew Johnson.
  • All your old favourite themes, most with a bugfix or two here and there.
