It looks good. Finally they fixed that jumping window list buttons ;) have been waiting for that one for years. The single best feature in this release, and I am not saying that to trashtalk the other improvements...I am just so happy that they finally fixed it!

This was my biggest gripe as well. Especially with firefox you change tabs and the taskbar buttons grow/shrink depending on the webpage title. >.< It made me switch to XFCE but I will give 2.20 a go on my machine.

I'm looking forward to Evince latest and Gnome 2.2 in Debian Sid.

With that and Okular I'll have 2 excellent PDF viewers and forms editors.

Of course, when Acrobat 8.1.1 has 64 bit builds I can then deal with Mechanical Engineering 3D Cad PDF files as well.
