Gnome follows major, odd/even releases. 2.27.3 will be 3 alpha
milestone of a 27 UNSTABLE & EXPERIMENTAL release for developers. the
2.27 series will eventually (somewhere in september) will become a
STABLE 2.28 release.

Karmic will ship with 2.28. If you really want to run 2.27.X gnome you
can run Karmic Alpha's (currently at alpha 2). This Karmic Alpha is
not production ready release either. So expect a lot of brekage,
regressions and instability. Afterall it has new kernel unstable
Gnome and etc.

We are not behind, we are using the latest stable 2.26 release of
gnome in a stable release and playing around with experimental gnome
in our development release.
