GNOME: GNOME 2.30 released
2010-04-01 07:13:48 Source: Email [ Print | 0 Comment(s) ]

GNOME 2.30 has been released

"Today, the GNOME Project celebrates the release of GNOME 2.30, the latest version of the popular, multi-platform free desktop environment and of its developer platform. Released on schedule, to the day, GNOME 2.30 builds on top of a long series of successful six months releases to offer the best experience to users and developers.

For more than 10 years now, the project has been seeing a tremendous amount of work. And as usual, it's hard to come back to a previous version of GNOME once you've tried this latest release, which is probably the best compliment the project can receive.

GNOME 2.30 also marks the last major release in the GNOME 2.x era. There will be maintenance releases for 2.30, but the community now focuses its efforts on GNOME 3.0!

This six months effort wouldn't have been possible without the whole GNOME community, made of contributors from all around the world: hackers, documentors, usability and accessibility specialists, translators, maintainers, sysadmins, companies, artists, users and testers. GNOME would not exist without all those people. Thanks very much to every one of them!

You'll find detailed information about GNOME 2.30 in our release notes:

http://library.gnome.org/misc/release-notes/2.30/

Most distributions have already started integrating GNOME 2.30 in their development version, or as package updates to their stable version.

To celebrate this release, a GNOME Store has been created. A selection of t-shirts and mugs is available on this store, that is powered by Zazzle:

http://www.zazzle.com/gnome

You can also support the GNOME Project by becoming a Friend of GNOME:

http://www.gnome.org/friends/

Some parties are already happening in various places to celebrate this release. But tomorrow morning, you can be sure that GNOME contributors will already be working on their plans for the next version of GNOME, due in September, 2010.

Enjoy! And be proud of this release!

GNOME: GNOME 2.29.4 released
2009-12-27 11:24:48 Source: Email [ Print | 0 Comment(s) ]

The GNOME 2.29.4 Development Release is now available

"And here comes 2.29.4, just in time for the holiday season. It's a few hours late, but there were several build issues this time. But if you take all the right tarballs, this should now be okay :-) And you'll enjoy some cool stuff, like an updated nautilus with its changed focus (see discussion on nautilus-list), or various modules like gnome-control-center with tons of bug fixes. You can also take a look at gnome-keyring which has changed quite a bit internally... There are definitely many changes in there, so it's a good time to do some deep testing!

You all know what you have to do now. Go download it. Go compile it. Go test it. And go hack on it, document it, translate it, fix it.

GNOME 2.26.0 Release Candidate (2.25.92) has been released

"My friends, we're nearly there! 2.26.0 will be out in two weeks. Yes, it will! I tell you so. And it will be a milestone in our history. Sure, it will! You don't doubt it. Because it's looking quite good. It definitely does! Ask around you to check. And people will love it. That's for sure! Make people try it. But we can still work a bit more on polishing GNOME for the prime time.

In the next ten days, we should all try to focus on the list of showstoppers and try to close as many of them as possible. It's also a good time to help Davyd write the release notes -- this is quite important to get some good material explaining what we've been working on in the last six months.

GNOME 2.25.90 has been released

"This is the sixth development release, and the first beta, towards our 2.26 release that will happen in March 2009. By now most things are in place, and your mission is easy: Go download it. Go compile it. Go test it. And go hack on it, document it, translate it, fix it.

With this release, we are now even more frozen; developer API/ABI were already, and at this point all new API are hopefully documented; no UI changes may be made without approval from the release team and notification to the documentation project, and no new features without approval from the release team. We also remain in the string change announcement period -- all string changes must be announced to both the gnome-doc-list and gnome-i18n lists.

Howtoforge posted a guide about setting up openSUSE 11.1 as desktop

"This tutorial shows how you can set up an OpenSUSE 11.1 desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge."
