Congrats to everybody who worked on the new GNOME 2.16!
If you are an Ubuntu user the new version is already available to edgy, just update and let we know how it works for you. Feel free to report your issues on launchpad (or on the GNOME bugzilla if you are confident you face an upstream bug). If you are not an Ubuntu user that might be a good occasion to give a try to it and to the new GNOME too ;)
Speaking about bugs and desktop, people wanting to give a hand (to triage and forward bugs by example), or simply discuss about the desktop, are welcome to join the Ubuntu Desktop Team!
