Gnome During the currently ongoing GUADEC conference in Den Haag the GNOME release team announced that GNOME 3.0 would be delayed for another six months and is now scheduled for March 2011. "We could release in September and have something working that is okayish, but it's not up to the standards we have" release team member Vincent Untz explains the reasoning. There's coverage of this issue at derStandard.at and an official GNOME press release.

Right decision to delay

But I think the decision to release a 2.32 is a mistake, instead they should have released a bugfix release of 2.30 and focused on fixing a great public Beta of 3.0 in September, so both users and developer could help test/port/evaluate the new desktop and its new API's before it's release in March. One should remember that after Gnome 3 is released, it will be nearly impossible to change API's, so the more programs is ported to the new API's during the Beta stage, the more is the systems design can be tested and refined before the final 3.0
