I'm not complaining here, so don't get the wrong idea. I've been using 2.12.1/2.12.2 for some time now (at least a month...not exactly sure) - and I'm just curious if it is going to be unmasked at all?

I know I've heard here and there while parousing the forums that Gnome is generally regarded as a complicated mess at the source-level...is that why it takes so long to get the ebuilds "stable"?

I can attest that it certainly isn't "production ready" at this point. It's working very well for me most of the time but I have had it completely freeze up (x86) and Nautilus barfs from time-to-time...but that's nothing new for Nautilus...if anything it's more stable for me in 2.12.x than it ever has been in the past.

Anyhow, 2.12 seems like a huge improvement...especially in the optimizations...much faster than past releases.

Thanks!
