Announcing the GNOME 2.6.0 Desktop & Developer Platform

Announcing the GNOME 2.6.0 Desktop & Developer Platform

In a release that marks the fruit of six months of hard work
from our hackers, maintainers, translators, testers, usability team
and accessibility team, the GNOME community has done it again:
GNOME 2.6.0 continues the high standards in the areas of usability,
accessibility and internationalisation that our users expect from
the world’s Free Software desktop.

This release cycle has been a painful one. During it the GNOME
community lost three close members: Chema Celorio, Mark Finlay and
Ettore Perazzoli were valued members of the community and will be
sorely missed. It is fitting, therefore, that this release is
dedicated to their memories.

Extensive information about GNOME 2.6 is in our release notes,
linked from the 2.6 start page. There’s also a huge gallery of cool
screenshots from our intrepid beta-testers!

Our time-based release philosophy means there’s never long
before a new major release. The GNOME development team has already
started working on GNOME 2.8, which will be seeing the light of day
in only six months time. We are looking forward to bringing our
users new and exciting developments then…
