GNOME Do has been released with a couple of extra bugfixes. The main attraction in the big top is a fix for the “Do sits there eating 100% cpu” bug. In the lesser rings are multiple fixes for crasher bugs, numerous Network-Manager related fixes, and some minor polish. Rumours of flying pink elephants remain
