Celebrating the release of GNOME 2.32!
======================================

Today, the GNOME Project celebrates the release of GNOME 2.32, the
latest version of the popular, multi-platform free desktop environment
and of its developer platform. Released on schedule, to the day, GNOME
2.32 builds on top of a long series of successful six months releases to
offer the best experience to users and developers.

For more than 10 years now, the project has been seeing a tremendous
amount of work. And as usual, it’s hard to come back to a previous
version of GNOME once you’ve tried this latest release, which is
probably the best compliment the project can receive.

GNOME 2.32 is the last planned major release in the GNOME 2.x series,
with only maintenance releases for GNOME 2.x planned going forward.
GNOME 2.32 features a limited set of new features in some applications,
as the community continues to focus on the upcoming GNOME 3.0 release
scheduled for April, 2011.

This six months effort wouldn’t have been possible without the whole
GNOME community, made of contributors from all around the world:
hackers, documentors, usability and accessibility specialists,
translators, maintainers, sysadmins, companies, artists, users and
testers. GNOME would not exist without all those people. Thanks very
much to every one of them!

You’ll find detailed information about GNOME 2.32 in our release notes:

Most distributions have already started integrating GNOME 2.32 in their
development version, or as package updates to their stable version.

Store, powered by Zazzle:

Some parties are already happening in various places to celebrate this
release. But tomorrow morning, you can be sure that GNOME contributors
will already be working on their plans for the next version of GNOME,
due in April, 2011.

Enjoy! And be proud of this release!
