Today, on the eve of the official Fedora Core 6 launch, is the due date for all GNOME projects wanting to submit their Tarballs for the 2.17.1 launch. GNOME 2.17.1 is scheduled for release this Wednesday, October 18, 2006. As always, the odd numbered release cycles signify the development branch, which this time is the road leading up to GNOME 2.18.0. The tentative GNOME 2.17/2.18 schedule can be found at GNOME Live
. Later this week we will be providing screenshots of the first GNOME 2.17 release.
