Gnome The Gnome Project released version 2.12 yesterday. We had a quick look at it by using the latest Gnome Live CD (1.12-pre) and Foresight 0.9.0 (2.12 final) and here are our thoughts over 2.12 and Gnome's status in general.

Hey Eugenia... cool to see you're back.

The article is nice. I don't agree much about the "missing big new features" complain, though. I think it's good that Gnome is focusing so much in the small details, and, also, there is some heavy work going on in other areas - such as implementing Cairo (yes, Gtk and Gnome are different projects, but we all know how they're close to each other and how there are developers working on both projects at the same time).

One small thing i miss a lot in Gnome: an easy way to browse the file-system as root. Everytime i need to do that, i have to open a terminal, which sucks. There should be some way to right-click the folder, type the root password, and browse the folder as root.
