GNOME 2.4 was released while I was on holiday. It was nice to miss the stress and just read the reviews when I got back. People seem pleased but unsurprised, and that’s how it should be.
I don’t understand any of that Ars Technica “spatial finder” article, and it’s not the first time I’ve tried to read it. I suspect that it’s badly written, and I hope that it’s just about opening folders in their own windows and not having back/forward buttons. If so, it’ll be more like classic MacOS and I’ll be happy. Anyway, I’ll have to try it before offering an opinion.
I’ll have very little cvs connectivity for the next few weeks, and there’s lots of things I’d like to do. I’d really like a month or so of uninterrupted time for GNOME/gtkmm hacking. Unfortunately it looks like my current contract will be extended until the end of the year, and I can’t say No to it without upsetting the agent.
