GARNOME 188.8.131.52 has been released:
This release is a re-roll of 2.11.92 with some patches for crashers applied (notably, nautilus) and some version bumps for dbus/HAL.
It also includes the python detection code Joseph has been working on and fixes pkg-config to look in both /pkgconfig and /pkg-config directories.
Also, this release has the --disable-debug/--disable-tests flags set, so everyone who complained that 2.11.x was huge, should start rebuilding and testing now.
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.
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.
