Hi Everyone,

This email is to announce Tomboy 0.10.0.  This is the beginning of the
stable 0.10.x series and will coincide with GNOME 2.22.x.

Tomboy has been branched as "gnome-2-22" for stable (0.10.x)
development.  SVN trunk is now open for new feature development

What is Tomboy

Tomboy is a simple personal 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.

The next six months...

Looking forward to 0.12.0, some of the following ideas have popped
up: 1) Making Tomboy more cross-platform compatible (run on Mac
and Windows using Gtk#), 2) Adding attachments to notes so you
can drag and drop pictures/documents/etc. into a note, 3) [suggest
something yourself]...

Of course, since many of the authors of Tomboy work on it "in their
spare time" anything's possible.  You can help!  Please share your
ideas with us on the Tomboy Mailing List [2], by submitting a feature
in GNOME's Bugzilla [3], or by adding them to our Wiki [4].  We'd
love to see new contributors join us; submit a one-line patch or
write an entirely new feature.

Big Thank You

helping to make Tomboy better!
