+      <p>GNOME is a desktop environment and graphical user interface
+	that runs on top of a computer operating system.  GNOME is part
+	of the GNU Project and can be used with various Unix-like
+	operating systems, including &os;.</p>
+      <p>Preperations for merging GNOME 3 are moving forward.  The
+	work on the documentation is falling behind a bit, but we got
+	some solid feedback on the rough work to keep this moving
+	forward as well.  In the meantime, deprecation of ports that
+	need the old GNOME 2 desktop ports has begun.  These ports
+	will break when the GNOME desktop components are updated to the
+	GNOME 3 version.</p>
+      <p>Thanks to a combined effort by Ryan Lortie (GNOME developer),
+	Ting-Wei Lan (upstream contributor), and &a.kwm;, we now have a
+	&os;-powered JHbuild tinderbox.  JHbuild is a build system that
+	lets building GNOME upstream code.  It will attempt twice a day
+	to build gnome components from a specific branch, which is the
+	git master branch most of the time, in order to catch compile
+	issues.  A positive side effect of this is that it lets upstream
+	know GNOME still lives on other systems than Linux.  It also
+	exposes the GNOME code base to the Clang compiler and
+	<tt>libc++</tt>.  Since the start of this project over a hundred
+	issues have been fixed.</p>
+      <p>Gustau Perez has stepped up and put together a port set in the
+	<q>ports-experimental</q> tree of our developement repository
+	with GNOME 3.12.  It was decided to polish GNOME 3.12.  It will
+	be merged when the preparation work has (mostly) finished, and
+	we are happy with the stability of GNOME 3.12.</p>
+      <p>Gustau Perez also ported Cinnamon 2.0 to &os;.  It will appear
+	in the Ports Collection after GNOME 3 has been merged.</p>
+      <p>MATE 1.8 was released at the beginning of April, Eric Turgeon
+	of GhostBSD is volunteered to do that update for &os;.  Note
+	that this update is still based on GTK+, version 2.  The
+	GTK+ 3-based MATE is on the roadmap for 1.10.</p>
