Gnome The GNOME team has released version 2.16 of its desktop environment. The release notes detail many improvements in this new version. Ars reviews this new release (ok, a pre-release), and concludes: "Overall, I think that GNOME 2.16 is a good release with some nice additions, but I don't think it has any killer features that justify an immediate upgrade. I'm going to wait for the official Ubuntu Edgy release in October rather than upgrading early. Of the new features included in GNOME 2.16, I think that the vertical view mode for Evolution is probably the one that will benefit me the most." Update: On a related note, Monodevelop 0.12 is out, with lots of changes in it.

Still needs some work

Just to tell my personal opinion, the new icon theme is ugly. And the Clearlooks theme just got a turn for the worse. But well, I won't be using those anyway..

But when will Gnome have a good integrated support for sending/receiving files? Like for example from Bluetooth/IRDA devices, or from other users logged in the same machine or another machine in the same network? Or am I the only one who would have use for such functionality? I don't really wish to start up Gaim to just send a file to someone, or set up a network share..

There's already a nautilus-sendto-bluetooth plugin.
