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.

Cairo fixes anti-aliasing for everything inside a window (well, once more of GTK+ actually starts drawing using Cairo...). However, to get good anti-aliasing of the window borders, you have to alpha blend each window with all the windows underneath it (compositing). This feature won't be generally available until the X software stack catches up, namely once Xgl, Composite, and Luminocity are more mature.
