Re: GNOME 3.0 Rescheduled for September 2011 Release


In case people had any doubt, this was an April 1st joke :-) If
anything, the work that occurred last week showed us that we're going to
get a strong 3.0 release!

Obviously, this development cycle was a bit different from our usual
cycles, as we've all wanted to make sure that 3.0 will be fantastic, and
this explains many of the changes happening this late in the cycle.
Things will go back to normal for 3.1/3.2.
