GNOME 2.32.1 has been released today by Luca Ferretti and it will be the last release of GNOME 2.x series as the development is now focusing on 3.0 release which should be out next year. I have been using GNOME in Ubuntu 10.10 and also in Fedora 14 on my virtual machine and so far, it has been a great release.
I can't wait for the next GNOME 3.0 even though i still opted to pick KDE if i have to choose KDE/GNOME as my favorite window manager
Since it's only a maintenance version, no new features are introduced in this release. Only bug fixes and translations updates are included.
