GNOME 2.13.x Development Series

GNOME 2.13.x is an unstable development series intended for testing and hacking purposes. GNOME uses odd minor version numbers to indicate development status, so this unstable 2.13.x series will eventually become the official 2.14 stable release. There are many ways you can get involved.

Plans for this release are documented on the RoadMap page. These plans do not necessarily cover every module and every feature that will be worked on, nor are they guaranteed to arrive in time. Maintainers, please keep the RoadMap page up to date where you can. :-)

When we are near feature-freeze, please mention the new features for the /ReleaseNotes.
