A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
(admittedly there was that minor spatial disaster partway through the Gnome 2.0 series but most distros turned it off so it didn't affect many users)

I'm genuinely curious, how was XFCE 3.0 -> 4.0?
I made that transition. It was considerably more disruptive than 4.6 to 4.8, but still not nearly as disruptive as KDE 3 to 4 or GNOME 2 to 3. The look changed quite a bit, but there was still a definite XFCE "feel" to both versions.

Functionally it was fine, but that was the transition from Gtk1 to Gtk2, which ballooned the memory requirements to such an extent that I ended up switching back to KDE as lower resource requirements had been a major selling point for XFCE.
