GNOME 2.24 Released

Well, the latest in the GNOME stable series appeared today.... the GNOME 2.24 Release Notes are online and have details of all the gnomey goodness in this release.

I'm not hugely impressed with the release (based on the notes) so far, it's definitely evolutionary, a new messanger tool included, tweaks to some software, tabbed file browser, new/better screen controls, new backgrounds (is this really such a big thing that it makes the release notes?!), and other stuff along the same lines. Maybe it's just that GNOME is a mature platform and there's not a huge amount of improvements you can make. I see this as a similar problem in Windows and MacOS as well...

Still, I'm looking forward to using this myself when the packages are up for my distro.... :)
