You can Download Foresight Linux here.

  • Epiphany is the new default web browser (not my choice).

Lets hope they have Firefox available.

  • For users with visual impairments, Foresight comes with a flexible, extensible, and powerful assistive technology: Orca.
  • With the Evince document viewer you now have a more advanced presentation mode. Evince will also stop the screensaver if one is detected. Evince supports many popular formats: PDF, Postscript Multi-Page TIFF, DVI, DjVu, Impress.
  • Tomboy (0.6.1) note taking application now supports: bullet point support, search, pin notes and backlinks.
  • Foresight is providing a faster search with the combination of Beagle (0.12) via the Deskbar (that now supports Drag & Drop and Firefox 2.0 search engines). By typing search terms into the Deskbar entry in your panel you are presented with the search results as you type.
  • Seahorse (1.0) lets you manage many kinds of keys and passwords. Seahorse enables you to encrypt, sign, decrypt and verify the contents of the clipboard.

Information taken from the newspage and the downloadpage of Foresight.

News came to me through Distrowatch, hinting me to the fact Foresight is released with GNOME 2.18.
