The GNOME Foundation 2009 Annual Report has been released and is available for download (30 MB, PDF).
The annual report is a summary of GNOME community activities in 2009. It includes a review of the year, accounts of various community activities and events around the world, an interview with the GNOME Release team, and GNOME Foundation development actions during the year.
Please note that the 2009 Annual Report covers the calendar year (Jan – Dec) while GNOME’s fiscal year is Oct – Sept. Next year’s annual report will be moving to cover the fiscal year to better align the finance portion of the annual report. The interview with the release team was also conducted prior to the announcement of GNOME 3.0 being pushed back until April, 2011.

It is with great pleasure that I announce the newly updated Friends of GNOME program! Fruit of several discussions which culminated at a meeting during this year’s Boston Summit, the new page offers several new features and benefits for both current and prospect new supporters! Highlights worth mentioning are:
- A completely FREE subscription to LWN for both current and new supporters!
- A new Annual adoption plan that gives you a sweet 15% discount and the choice of receiving a cool t-shirt right away!
- Donations done by US citizens are tax deductible too!
- Receive a signed postcard from your favorite GNOME hacker!
- Join our many Friends and let us tell the whole world about your support!
We have so much more to offer in the coming weeks too, so you’re sure to see some really great news and offers soon!
Remember that your generous support allows us to sponsor more events and get people together so that we can continue working on making GNOME a rock solid and pleasant environment for your systems!
