GNOME 2.8 released

The GNOME Foundation today released the latest evolution of its widely used Linux desktop GNOME version 2.8. The new release adds some significant new features and further expands the usability of the Linux desktop.

The Linux desktop currently has two principal open source projects, GNOME and KDE that are both vying to become the dominant technology of choice. GNOME is the default desktop for a number of Linux distributions, including Red Hat, and is the basis for Sun’s Java Desktop System (JDS). It is available as a user option on most other major distributions, including Mandrake, SUSE, Debian and Gentoo.

Version 2.8 comes six months after GNOME’s last release and one month after its chief rival KDE released its latest desktop.
