GNOME readies 2.18 with final bugfix snapshot
The GNOME project released version 2.17.92 of its popular Linux desktop on Feb. 28. This is the last unstable bugfix release prior to the 2.18.0 release, set for March 14, a project spokesperson said.
The "hard code freeze" of 2.18.0 is scheduled for March 5. The spokesperson pointed out that "it's not too late to fix this last bug you're ashamed of. And then, you'll be able to think about the future. What will make GNOME 2.20.0 rock? It's up to you to write this future!"
