GNOME v2.17.1

After last month's release of GNOME 2.16.0, the 2.17.1 release of GNOME has been announced this morning -- in the development cycle for the road to 2.18.0. The changes are fairly extensive already for being the first test release in the GNOME 2.18 cycle. Of the updated packages in this first development release is new encoding profile support in Banshee, network game support in many of GNOME Games, Gossip fixes, GNOME Power Manager advancements, and much more. We have already fired up GARNOME and have plenty of screenshots of the freshly-compiled GNOME 2.17.1.

The GIMP v2.3.9

The GIMP, the popular open-source multi-platform image program, has come out this afternoon with what will hopefully be one of the final development snapshots in the road to GIMP version 2.4. There are 28 notable changes in GIMP v2.3.9, which brings the total count for the GIMP v2.3 series up to approximately 260, of course, that's not counting all of the bug fixes and code cleanup. We at Phoronix have taken the GIMP v2.3.9 code and compiled it to visually demonstrate some of the changes in the GNU Image Manipulation Program.

A Tour of Bon Echo Alpha 2

Released Friday afternoon was Mozilla Firefox Bon Echo Alpha 2 -- the second development milestone in the road to Mozilla Firefox 2.0, which is expected for a release later this year. In this latest Firefox 2.0a2 release, which is targeted solely at developers and testers, are quite a few prominent changes. Rather than simply providing screenshots or the release notes for this feature-filled release, we have independently examined most of the changes, and today at Phoronix we have some details to share in regards to these newly implement features. Whatever browser you may be currently using, Mozilla Firefox v2.0 is suiting up to knock out Internet Explorer 7 and Opera.

GNOME v2.15.1

With GNOME 2.14 having come out in March of this year, the development for the GNOME 2.16 cycle is now in full swing. The first GNOME 2.15 release to have come out thus far has been GNOME v2.15.1; as with past releases the odd numbers signify the development builds. With all of the packages that are now integrated with GNOME, we will refrain from sharing the individual changes, but there are plenty of excellent features planned for the upcoming release. We had built GNOME 2.15.1 from source using GARNOME on May 03, 2006. GNOME 2.16.0 is presently slated for a September 2006 release.
