http://permalink.gmane.org – GNOME 2.29.6 Development Release ================================ Here is the second GNOME release for year 2010 and sixth development release towards our 2.30 release that will happen in March; we are quickly getting there! Your mission, it never changes: Go download it. Go compile it. Go test it. And go hack on it, document it, translate it, fix it. And come to FOSDEM! There will be both a booth and a developer room for GNOME, and tons of hackers to hug. Please note that this milestone marks the beginning of the feature freeze. This is a good time to start summarizing what has changed in your modules in this cycle, so that people can work on the release notes! See http://live.gnome.org/TwoPointTwentynine/ReleaseNotes Also don't forget we are in those periods: * String Change Announcement Period: string changes must be announced to gnome-doc-list and gnome-i18n. * UI Change Announcement Period: UI changes must be announced to gnome-doc-list. To compile GNOME 2.29.6, you can the jhbuild [1] modulesets [2] (which use the exact tarball versions from the official release): [1] http://library.gnome.org/devel/jhbuild/ [2] http://download.gnome.org/teams/releng/2.29.6/ The release notes that describe the changes between 2.29.5 and 2.29.6 are available.
