GNOME 2.26.3 released
The GNOME release team have announced the availability of the final update to GNOME 2.26. The maintenance release for the free open source desktop environment includes several bug fixes, a large number of translation updates and documentation changes. Updates in the release include fixes to normalising tracks in CD/DVD burning application Brasero, several performance improvements for the GNOME menus, improved seeking for AVI and Matroska video files and fixes to cursor drawing on 64-bit systems running MouseTweaks.
The GNOME development team are currently working on the next development branch that will become GNOME 2.28, scheduled for release at the end of September. GNOME 2.30, which will be re-numbered as 3.0.0, will be a major overhaul of the user interface and is expected to arrive in March of 2010.
More details about the GNOME 2.26.3 release can be found in the changelog. A list of distributions that use GNOME as their Default Desktop can be found on the distributions page of the GNOME web site.
