Ok. That's what I thought. According to the release schedule
( GNOME has been in string
freeze for almost a month, and the Swedish translation status page says
there's only about 900 untranslated strings in gnome-desktop, so it sure
seems that way! ;P

Just one more question, is the main menu of the gnome-panel still
altered in the Ubuntu build of GNOME, or did the GNOME devs think it was
such a good idea that they made it the default?
