These include the GVFS virtual file system framework, tweaks to GNOME's Totem video player, and new applications like Cheese and Vinagre. Evolution also gets some love in 2.22, but not all of the planned features made the cut. 'Some features that were proposed for inclusion GNOME 2.22, like the Empathy messaging client, were not ready in time for the release and have been deferred until GNOME 2.24.
