53 looks good

About six weeks ago, in anticipation of GNOME 2.16, I switched my desktop from an Ion window manager-based X11 environment to the JDS environment integrated with Solaris. Now, with the delivery of Build 53—not yet on the Download Centre, apparently—the wait is over:

A few keyboard shortcuts input, a tweak of the window preferences, and it’s back to normal work. (Or better: using evince and gnome-terminal in their full screen modes are distinct improvements for reading documents onscreen.)
