"This is the first Gnome release that includes a frontend to help users add and connect to their devices. And it's pretty well integrated into the Gnome desktop. So you can now pair your mobile phone, and it'll show up in the NetworkManager as a device to connect through to the internet.

"Integration is another major focus of this release. Besides the integration for mobile phones, Gnome 2.28 now offers both instant messaging and VoIP from the same app, Empathy, which has replaced Pidgin. It's got a slick new UI which lets you drag-drop contacts to arrange them into groups, a themeable conversation dialogue window, and more. It'll also let you make audio and full-screen video calls with your contacts. Empathy is integrated with Gnome's remote desktop app, Vino, using which it lets you share your desktop with your contacts."
