GNOME Project Updates Free Desktop with 2.30 Release

BOSTON, Mass -- March 31, 2010 -- The GNOME Project is proud to
announce GNOME 2.30, the latest stable release of the popular Free
Software desktop environment and applications suite. GNOME 2.30 builds
on previous GNOME releases and brings hundreds of improvements for
users and developers, including enhancements for user management, Web
browsing, support for Facebook chat, and new productivity features.

GNOME contributors have added improvements across the board for GNOME
2.30 in accessibility, productivity applications, Web browsing,
instant messaging, and games. This release includes hundreds of new
features, enhancements, and improvements over the GNOME 2.28 release
from September 2009.

"I'm really pleased with all of the updates in GNOME 2.30," said
Stormy Peters, GNOME Executive Director. "I'm excited that I can
automatically sync my Tomboy notes between my desktop and laptop
computer, easily configure Facebook chat in Empathy instant messenger,
and do more with PDFs in Evince. GNOME 2.30 provides everything I need
for work and play."

The GNOME Project thrives by consistently improving on previous
releases while retaining compatibility and delivering a user-friendly
desktop environment and applications twice a year. GNOME combines a

Providing previously missing board meeting minutes


GNOME Foundation:

Recently Rosanna Yuen informed me that she needed to print out and
archive copies of all past board minutes.  She was having trouble
doing this since the GNOME Foundation board minutes archive on the
Wiki only went back to 2007.  So she asked me to flesh out the Wiki
so it includes links to all meeting minutes back to the year 2000.  I
have done this, refer here:

   http://live.gnome.org/FoundationBoard/Minutes

However, while doing research I discovered that there were eight (8)
meeting minutes that were sent only to the board members and never
published.  These minutes are now attached, and are for the following
meetings:

* 03/01/2004
* 08/11/2004
* 06/27/2006
* 12/13/2006
* 08/09/2007
* 09/20/2007
* 11/01/2007
* 02/25/2009
