Gnome 3 Delayed until 2011

If you’re looking forward to the next Gnome desktop environment, you’ll have to wait until March. Members of the Gnome project gathered at the GUADEC conference in the Netherlands where they announced that Gnome 3 would be delayed until March 2011. This delays the project by a year, as it’s original release was schedule for March 2010. The Gnome project will now issue another incremental update in September. “Gnome is driven by its goals to provide a quality, free software desktop, and we feel that our users and downstream community are better served by holding the Gnome 3.0 release until March 2011,” the Gnome project said via an official statement. Much progress has been made in the desktop environment. Users can download early versions of the Shell package from Launchpad.
