The GNOME Desktop is released every six months with many new features, improvements, "bug" fixes and translations. GNOME 2.16 continues this tradition and includes many interesting new features and fixes for hundreds of reported bugs.
GNOME 2.16 is the latest version of the GNOME Desktop; a popular, multi-platform desktop environment for Linux, UNIX and other platforms. Based on Free and Open Source Software, GNOME provides all of the common tools computer users have come to expect of a modern computing environment, as well as a flexible and powerful platform for software developers.
If you're traveling a lot with your laptop computer, the new integrated power management support of GNOME 2.16 will be a major help: It lets you manage your battery, UPS, and wireless peripherals.
You can now burn DVDs directly with Nautilus CD Burner; there's no need to make an image anymore. :D
