Hey Everyone,

This email is to announce Tomboy 0.6.0!  This is the beginning of the
stable 0.6.x series and will coincide with GNOME 2.18.x.

Tomboy has been branched as "gnome-2-18" for stable (0.6.x) development.
SVN trunk is now open for new feature development (0.7.x).

Tomboy is a simple note-taking application designed to be unobtrusive
and friendly, while supporting inter-note links similar to a
WikiWikiWeb to help you organize your notes and ideas.  It can run
either as a Gnome panel applet or a notification tray-icon.

See the website at http://www.gnome.org/projects/tomboy for
downloads, screenshots, and more information.
