I am happy to pass on the announcement that GNOME has released 2.30, and exactly on schedule! This release brings a number of great improvements that I’m sure you’ll be happy with in the upcoming Ubuntu release. Because Ubuntu bases its releases after the GNOME release schedule, each GNOME release means an Ubuntu release is imminent.
If you enjoy GNOME, please consider donating to Friends of GNOME. They are *so* close to their goal. I’m sure the readers of Ubuntu Tutorials could help push them over the goal! Thank you.
