Today, the GNOME Project celebrates the release of GNOME 2.12, the latest version of the popular, multi-platform Free desktop environment.
Released on schedule, to the day, it is the culmination of six months effort by GNOME contributors around the world: hackers, documentors, usability and accessibility specialists, translators, maintainers, sysadmins, companies, artists, users and testers. GNOME runs on a variety of platforms, including GNU/Linux (commonly called Linux), Solaris, HP-UX, BSD and Apple's Darwin. Work has been done in this release to make it easier to port GNOME tools to Windows as well.
GNOME developers around the world are looking forward to working on fresh new features for the next version of GNOME, due in March, 2006.
