Today, the GNOME Project celebrates the release of GNOME 2.18, the
latest version of the popular, multi-platform Free desktop
environment.

Released on schedule, to the day, it is the culmination of six months
effort by GNOME contributors around the world: hackers, documentors,
usability and accessibility specialists, translators, maintainers,
sysadmins, companies, artists, users and testers. Due to their hard
work, we have another great release to be proud of - thanks very much
to every contributor!

You'll find information about GNOME 2.18 in our release notes, linked
from the 2.18 start page.

Meanwhile, GNOME developers around the world are looking forward to working

Enjoy!
