GNOME 2.8 Released Today

Just announced GNOME 2.8 is released. See release page. Evolution 2.0 is now part of the GNOME release!.
Comments:

Any chance we'll see GNOME 2.6 or 2.8 bundled with Solaris 10? GNOME 2.0 is getting a bit long in the tooth, but I use it because the Sun-compiled and -tuned version runs so much faster than Blastwave's KDE packages. In fact, it's at least twice as fast on my U2/2x300.

Yes. Indeed, we are integrated JDS 3 in Solaris 10 which is based on gnome 2.6 + mozilla + evo + APOC + lots of good stuff. S10 is ROCK! So It should be in the next Solaris 10 Express reelase if you want to see it earlier. Thanks for your interest in the product!

Great! I was expecting that the JDS environment would still be a separate product so this is extra good news to me. Thanks, Ghee! (Did I mention how great it is to be able to interact like this with Sun folks? Well, it is...)

Derek, I feel much the same way too to be able to provide something useful to people like you who are interested and using our product!

Hi, Oh man, this is so sweet =). Please tell me I'm not dreaming - you just said JDS3, Gnome 2.6, evolution 2.0, etc will be in the next sol-express? (with ZFS?). Can't wait - any heads up on exact release date? Also, sorry to seem greedy, but when g2.8? (then again, I suppose it's not stable/tested - however, the new MIME system, Gnome Volume Manager, Gnome keyring thingy - http://www.gnome.org/~davyd/gnome-2-8/ - all of it'svery cool). bye, Victor

My fault. Though gnom 2.8 has evo 2.0. But We are only shipping gnome 2.6 so evo 1.4 with Solaris 10 as one can understand, it does take times to build a product from the community release :)
