Gnome As most of you will know, the GNOME team is hard at work on GNOME 3.0, the first major overhaul of the platform since 2002. The release of GNOME 3.0 was originally planned for March 2010, but it has now been pushed back for six months to September 2010.

Why don't we just release 3.0.0 now? It doesn't matter if it's incomplete, buggy, and unfinished at this stage of development, because we can just say that 3.0.0 is not Gnome 3. The distros will hold it back until it's really ready. But it will give them a chance to start getting it integrated. And within a year and a half to two years, I'm sure everything will be just fine.


One - if you don't care if it's incomplete, buggy, and unfinished, you're welcome to run the development releases, or out of git/svn.

Two, this isn't KDE4, a complete rewrite. It's simply an evolution of the 2 series, which is already perfectly well integrated by distros. All they need is for the upstream Gnome developers to get things feature-complete and stable, then the distros are ready to start pushing betas and release candidates out to would-be users.
