Gnome GNOME 2.22.0 release candidate has been released. "This is the last unstable release before 2.22.0. It's been a pretty fun ride since September. New features. Bug fixes. Translations. Documentation. Lots of bug triaging too. And we're getting ready to start again for 2.23! But before, we need to make sure 2.22.0 will be rock-solid. There's still a few days before the hard code freeze, so it's not too late to fix this last bug you're ashamed of."

But what is the status of gtk development these days?

I remember in the past reading about the speed of development of gtk and the number of developers is very low. Is this true? Why do you think it is so that we are able to find so few developers to work on the only really big open source bazaar toolkit?

Is gtk holding gnome back?

(And slightly off topic (This paragraph is not a critique but just an observation))
With the version number becoming so high (22) i find it harder to remember which version they are on. Not sure why but it might be because the relative size of the change in number becomes smaller every time. ((22-20)/22) << ((8-6)/8)
