Re: Luna Update


I understand your point of view and I'm not against a release of Luna
earlier than expected.
However some core applications like Files seems to crash too many times.

Maybe we should focus the work on particuliar applications, some  can have
alternative (Noise, Maya,..) and some not (Gala, Slingshot, Wingpanel ..)
