Hi Everyone,

This email is to announce Tomboy 0.12.0.  This is the beginning of the
stable 0.12.x series and will coincide with GNOME 2.24.x.

Tomboy has been branched as "gnome-2-24" for stable (0.12.x)
development.  SVN trunk is now open for new feature development
(0.13.x).


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.

But we haven't had our roadmap meeting yet, so we'll see what the rest
of the community is interested in working on. Keep an eye on tomboy-list
for scheduling of this public meeting.
