GNOME logoThe improvements in GNOME 2.20 include: Improved support for right-to-left languages; desktop search integrated into the file chooser dialog; convenient new features in the Evolution email and calendar client; enhanced browsing of image collections; simplified system preferences; efficient power management and incredibly accurate laptop battery monitoring. Developers receive more help with application development thanks to a new version of the GTK+ toolkit, improved tools, and a great new documentation web site.

It is interesting how GNOME is continuing to do incremental updates in their releases, while KDE is trying to change everything very quickly. Congratulations to the GNOME developers for a superb release!
