"Gnome is meant to be stable from the ground up."
Thanks Sherlock. I'll remember that when I try Evolution for the umpteenth time after several years of development.
"That is why they have so few changes and the changes that do occur are VERY incremental and do not break compatibility with Gnome from almost 10 years ago."
That's a lovely bit of reasoning, but alas, it's all smoke really. Incremental changes have basically amounted to nothing of any significance over the past few 'releases' in terms of new features and functionality. The reason why that is is because the framework they have underneath them simply doesn't allow them to add new features and functionality in any sane manner.
