Gnome GNOME 2.13.2 has been released. Odd-numbered versions of GNOME represent developmental branches, hence this is the second development release on the road towards GNOME 2.14 in March 2006. You can compile this new test release using these jhbuild modulesets. Now, can you hear the new Zipdisk Mount Error Dialog HIG-compliant console beep?

People frequently suggest that KDE dump Qt and switch to GTK+. That makes absolutely no sense, there'd be tons to loose and no gain. Except of course, horrible performance and. The only thing that could be considered a plus among it's users is that it they can develop proprietary software.

I have a real suggestion though: How about Gnome dump GTK+ and switch to Qt? It has everything to gain including documentation, an easy & sexy API, and awesome performance -- atleast compared to GTK+.

because they'd have tons to lose and nothing to gain. why would they want to switch to a clunky, less attractive, poorer performing toolkit with a licencing problem when they already have the best available toolkit on linux today.
