GNOME 2.28 - the dawn of a new era

"GNOME 2.28 is complete. The new release of the Linux and Unix desktop, probably the last in the 2.x series, includes the usual bug fixes and enhancements to the various components, but also offers a foretaste of Gnome 3.0 (ETA March 2010), albeit mostly in the form of behind the scenes changes. A range of now redundant libraries have also been marked as obsolete, though not yet discarded.

"GNOME 2.28 includes a preview version of one of the more conspicuous changes in Gnome 3.0, the GNOME Shell. GNOME will consequently, from next spring, have a new look – the first fundamental change to the desktop for several years. The task-oriented mode of operation is intended to make it organic and intuitive to work with."
