Hi Matt,

Well, I just realised my mistake. For Gnome 2.8, they kept fixing bugs
and produced Gnome 2.8.1, 2.8.2 and 2.8.3, to fix bugs etc of the stalbe
version. So I guess they will keep working on 2.10 in the same way, so
they might fix some of the bugs. But, will the update-manager in Hoary,
include upgrades to 2.10.2 and 2.10.3 when they are released ?
I thought that stable version of Ubuntu only got fixes for
severe/critical bugs ?
If you Hoary does get 2.10.x updates every 2 months, then I take my hat
off, and am looking forward to the first update ! :o)
