I get it - I misread the first paragraph, sorry!

As far as Activity Journal - the tarball that was released [1] is from
early February, and doesn't have a 2.30 release similar to how Owen is
releasing GNOME Shell with the GNOME release cycle, so where the press
release says:  "The 2.30 release contains significant user-visible
improvements, it also adds numerous platform improvements for
developers, and builds towards the upcoming GNOME 3.0 release with a
preview of the revolutionary GNOME Shell and Activity Journal." - I
don't think it's accurate as there is no preview release of Activity
Journal yet.

It is Seif's intent to have it included in GNOME 3.0, so I think it's ok
in the looking forward section as it will be introduced as a module in
the coming weeks.

I hope that makes sense.
