gnome-panel 2.4.1
gnome-session 2.4.1
gnome-desktop 2.4.1

Hey,

What are they?

gnome-panel contains the GNOME panel which is the area on your desktop from which you can run applications and applets, and perform other tasks.

gnome-session contains the GNOME session manager, the GNOME session manager configuration program and several other session management related utilities and the GNOME session manager proxy, which handles basic session management for applications that do not support XSMP.

gnome-desktop contains the libgnome-desktop library which contains APIs that really belong in libgnome[ui] but have not seen enough testing or development to be considered stable. It also contains documents installed as part of the core GNOME distribution, e.g. the GPL, GNOME's .desktop files, the gnome-about program, some manpages and GNOME's core graphics files and icons.
