The latest release of GNOME is here: GNOME 2.16.2! This is the second release in a series of point releases for the 2.16 branch.
Come and see all the bug fixing, all the new translations and all the updated documentations brought to you by the wonderful team of GNOME contributors! While development continues on the GNOME 2.17/2.18 road, we didn't forget about making a new release that is rock solid. And simply better than the previous one.
If you meet any GNOME contributors while shopping, in a bus, or even on the Internet, don't forget to thank them!
