Congrats on becoming moderator Saw it on the other thread. 3070 posts! My contribution to mint is nowhere near, probably other than introducing those I know to Mint. Way to go!
As for Gnome 3.2, so yeah, maybe I should just stop thinking abt it. Like someone I know says, Expectation creates frustration and pain. Maybe, its what we have to pay for the stability we get. Thanks anyway.

We want Update Pack 4 for the software UPDATES -- Chromium, Gimp, Geany, VLC, LibreOffice, Pidgin, qTorrent, XFCE, ...
You know, like with Firefox which is now at 9.0.1 (from a few weeks ago when it was v5), now why is that in your opinion?
(I know, testing. I don't want testing: I've messed the OS core enough times already; I just want my updated "user" space apps!)

I suppose, once the Gnome3.2 transition is over, the updates will be more regular

We can only hope so.

LMDE 201109 Gnome
The team is proud to announce the release of LMDE 201109 with updated ISOs for Gnome and Xfce.
LMDE in brief
Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE) is a rolling distribution based on Debian Testing.
sid is a rolling release (and won't be frozen in june 2012- the development might slow down because the debian devs are focusing in fixing bugs for the debian7 release- nothing else)
