Are there any specific issues hav sander?  I didn't realize the file
chooser would be such a large issue, but we're correcting that with
Carlos' help.  We want to transfer bugs to gnome bugzilla, just as we
moved the project website to (and we've always put the sources
on gnome ftp).  We did not remove all traces of deprecated code due to
the testing considerations listed by Dan.  We spent a lot of time
getting HIG compliant this time around, we are matching the GNOME
release dates, we removed the "Ximian Evolution" branding and just
called the app Evolution.
