Gnome The day is finally here, the day that the GNOME team releases GNOME 3.0, the first major revision of the GNOME project since 2002. Little of GNOME 2.x is left in GNOME 3.0, and as such, you could call it GNOME's KDE4. We're living in fortunate times, what, with two wildly divergent open source desktops.

Surprisingly enough, the notification system is entirely backwards compatible. It still uses libnotify and requires no patching at all from apps to work with it at least at the basic level, it's transparent.

Concrete example: I've been pleasantly surprised to see that Specto's notifications work 100% fine and "as you would expect" with GNOME Shell. I did not have to touch a single line of code. This is frankly quite an achievement.
