While GNOME 2.30 will not be the release that goes on to become GNOME 3.0 (instead it will be GNOME 2.32 in September that grabs the "3.0" tag), the second development release for the 2.30 series is now available.

This new GNOME 2.30 development release goes by the version number 2.29.2. Among the changes to be found in GNOME 2.29.2 include Evince now supporting PDF File Attachment Annotations, gcalctool now has a command-line version called gcalccmd of this GNOME Calculator, GDM has picked up many enhancements, a Moblin front-end for gnome-bluetooth, and Tomboy now supports Ubuntu One. There are also various other additions, bug fixes, and translation updates. The GNOME 2.29.2 release announcement can be found on the gnome-announce-list.

Two more GNOME 2.29.x development releases are due out in December while GNOME 2.30 goes into beta in February and then the final release of GNOME 2.30.0 is due out on the 31st of March.
