GARNOME 2.17.5
Posted on: 01/11/2007 02:49 AM

The "Same procedure as every year, James" release.

Same old game -- a bunch of late updates. This time round, the latest one has been pushed just a few minutes before the GARNOME release. The package has been tested prior to the release nonetheless. Not the usual news would be some particular known-to-be-broken packages making progress, and finally being useful... :)

We are pleased to announce the release of GARNOME 2.17.5 Desktop and Developer Platform. This release includes all of GNOME 2.17.5 plus a whole bunch of updates that were released after the GNOME freeze date.

This is the fifth release in the unstable cycle, with more features, more fixes and yet more madness added. It is for anyone who wants to get his hands dirty on the development branch, or who'd like to get a peek at future features. If you want to help spot issues in GARNOME, (or, better yet, fix 'em ;-) this release is for you as well.

As usual, you can get the tarball directly from the site:

Note: GNOME 2.17.x is an unstable branch and is assumed to be a moving target. Therefore, things in this release may not work as advertised.

If you find any issues with this release, feel free to contact the GARNOMEies in the #garnome channel on GIMPNet (irc://, where we hang out, or post to the mailing list.
