http://permalink.gmane.org – GNOME 2.29.92 Release Candidate ================================ Spring is almost there, as well as GNOME 2.30. And since we want it to be our best release ever, we are happy to give you a release candidate of 2.30 : GNOME 2.29.92. Your mission is easy: Go download it. Go compile it. Go test it. And report bugs ;) We remind you we are string frozen, no string changes may be made without confirmation from the l10n team (gnome-i18n< at >) and notification to both the release team and the GNOME Documentation Project (gnome-doc-list< at >). The other freezes are of course still in place, details on http://live.gnome.org/ReleasePlanning/Freezes . Hard code freeze is approaching too (March 15 2010) : no source code changes can be made without approval from the release-team. Translation and documentation can continue. To compile GNOME 2.29.92, 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/2.29.92/ The release notes that describe the changes between 2.29.91 and 2.29.92 are available.
