GARNOME 2.11.91 has been released:
This release incorporates all of the GNOME 2.11.91 (aka. Beta 2) Desktop and Developer Platform, including glib/gtk+ 2.7.x and cairo.
This release has also had a little more polish to ensure that the build system builds and links against things in your GARNOME directory, and not your system one, hopefully cutting down on errors relating to pesky '.la files' that some distributions insist on shipping in their -devel packages.
That said -- and while this release has actually been more stringently tested than it's snapshot counterpart -- it's still likely to do things that are weird and unexpected ... maybe ... that's just the nature of the beast.
In particular, GCC 4.x users may want to take a look at:http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=309661
and then uncomment the CFLAGS workaround in your gar.conf.mk file before beginning your build.
In addition, people who have been bitten by the `cairo_surface_write_to_png' bug-of-doom (http://mail.gnome.org/archives/garnome-list/2005-July/msg00142.html) should be all sorted now, if you still find this bug -- please let the mail ing list know.
Aside from that, READ the README's, join the mailing list, use the IRC channel -- and most of all, report bugs -- all of which will help make GNOME 2.12 a happier and safer place for everyone.
