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."

Oh no. You appear to have version-number-itis!

Its a debilitating disease where one assumes that version numbers have literal meaning. :-)

Don't worry too much about version numbers. Glib/Gtk is on a different release schedule to GNOME, so the version numbers are bound to get out of sync.

As for developer effort/number of new features added, like all of FOSS it comes and goes in waves. A lot of people have invested money in Gtk, so its not going away. It recently had a quiet period, and now it (incl GNOME) seems to be bouncing back. KDE4 has inspired a lot of motivation on the GNOME side, and I'm willing to bet that the next GNOME release will have many new features, to keep pace with KDE4.

Thats why competition in FOSS is good.
