ARS Technica
GNOME 2.20 was officially released last week after six months of development. The new version includes strong incremental improvements that contribute to a better user experience and provide more flexibility and integration opportunities for third-party software developers.

GNOME is a collaborative open-source project that aims to provide a cohesive and versatile computing environment with an emphasis on reliability and ease of use. Developed by an international community of volunteer contributors and developers employed by a wide range of software companies, the GNOME platform offers effective computing tools and a robust foundation for a growing ecosystem of third-party software.

The environment is distributed under GNU's General Public License and Lesser General Public License, which grant users the freedom to modify, adapt, and redistribute software. GNOME also encourages user autonomy and technological self-determination by broadly supporting open standards and interoperability.

In particular, we will look at how some of the most significant changes impact the GNOME user experience, examine some of the architectural improvements that are of interest to open-source software developers, and shed some light on the GNOME development process to see how some of these features came into existence....
