With just two weeks left until GNOME 2.20.0 enters the world, the final development build is scheduled for release tomorrow. GNOME 2.19.92 is the GNOME 2.20.0 release candidate, which will contain a few fixes since the GNOME 2.20 Beta 2 release. Following the release of GNOME 2.19.92 is a GNOME 2.20.0 hard-code freeze on September 10 which lasts for one week, and then on September 19 will be the official release of GNOME 2.20.0! After that, we can start dreaming about the GNOME 2.22 release. The complete GNOME schedule is available from GNOME Live.
