Gnome GNOME 2.12 will be released to the world on September 7th, 2005, culminating 6 months of very exciting work by members of the project. A number of exciting technologies come together in GNOME 2.12 that will set the standard for free software desktops to come. Here is a sample of some of the outstanding work that has gone into GNOME thanks to its many contributors.

The menu editor on Breezy can only hide existing applications - how to add new ones? And also you have to logout and relogin to make the changes active. What happened to instant apply?

I like Smeg the best.

Gnomes never really had it, so nothing happened to it.

To refresh without rebooting, this command:

killall gnome-panel

Inotify support needs to be fully integrated for changes to show up immediately. Hopefully it'll also increase the speed of the gnome menu, its way too slow for my tastes.

No, you don't need that if your system is working correctly... mostly gamin should be to blame here but for me, it works wonderfully, everything is updating in real time
