It is funny that some people want to bump version numbers for no good reason. The fact that a project can advance in the current framework without the need of a major rewrite is a good thing. And the current generation of GNOME seems to be in good shape, and if there is no 3.0 so much the better. And arguments over GNOME and Gnome seem like making storm in a teapot. GNOME it is, and that name already works well, and then so be it.
