Maybe alive, but they didn't seem add much interesting. Tomboy's mono dependency is pretty much overkill for something as simple as note-taking - it's mostly on par with Knotes, but can't get close to Basket. Why all the resource use?

Anyway, the best improvement is the security/signing/encryption stuff, and in that area (typical) they're years behind KDE. Finally catching up...

Sorry, but why isn't gnome doing more? They had 2 years to get ahead of KDE, but still didn't manage to put out things that where slightly better than what they had. Except for the usability area, you can't argue gnome 2.18 is much better than KDE 3.5.x, and KDE 4 is coming in 8 months...
