Looking forward to GNOME 2.18
GNOME operates on a time-based release schedule, an attempt to continuously provide the best of our developers' efforts to users as quickly as we can. The following features are on the radar of GNOME developers and may land in the next few releases.
- Further improvements to Metacity's compositor capabilities.
- Continueing consolidation of GTK+ and GNOME libraries to ease development and deployment of GNOME applications, via Project Ridley.
- An upgrade of bugzilla.gnome.org to Bugzilla 3.0, and related changes to Bug-Buddy to work with any Bugzilla 3.0+ bugtracker if possible.
For further information, see the GNOME roadmap on our wiki.
