GARNOME 184.108.40.206 has been released. Here the announcement:
GARNOME 2.10.0 had some rather fatal issues, that made it much harder to compile than it should have been -- so your trusty GARNOMEies have been hard at work since the original release, fixing bugs and quirks all over the place ... in an attempt to make a version that can be prefixed as truly 'stable'.
Major issues fixed or otherwise resolved since 2.10.0 include:
* glib, gtk+ and pango now compile with 'minimal debugging' enabled -- in an effort to get badly behaved applications to work properly. 
* a number of GCC 2.95.x and 4.0.x incompatibilities have been fixed.
* gnome-system-monitor is now buildable.
* the bug in gnome-floppy that caused people to have to modify kernel headers to get it to compile correctly, has been corrected.
* the panel will now load the mixer applet correctly at startup.
* nautilus will no longer crash on startup, the included patches have been updated to correct the issue.
* right-clicking the panel will no longer crash either.
* ... nor will epiphany, file-roller or rhythmbox
* Musicbrainz has been included in bootstrap/ to make the sound-juicer build work on systems where packages are not actually available.
* and more.
Basically, this is an essential upgrade for anyone and everyone whotried out GARNOME 2.10.0 -- my sincerest apologies to everyone who tried to build it and failed, hopefully 220.127.116.11 is a release that does what the original release should have done.
As always, if there are any questions about the release, the mailing list or #garnome on irc://irc.gimp.org
are the places to be.
 This was actually the default for stable GARNOME 2.6.x and 2.8.x, the fact it is still the default for 2.10.x is actually quite depressing.
