GDM2 (unstable) has been released

The release is an unstable release of GDM2 that resolves an interface stability issue. Now if the user has a /etc/gdm/gdm.conf file installed on their system, this will be used instead of the custom.conf file. This better supports backwards compatibility if the user has an old configuration file on their system. stuff:

- Now GDM will use the gdm.conf file if it exists as the custom.conf file, so if the user has an old configuration file it will continue to use that. (Brian Cameron)

- Translation updates (Gabor Kelemen, Alexander Shopov)

Note: GDM2 was originally written by Martin K. Petersen. Much work has been done on GDM2 by George Lebl, and Brian Cameron currently shares maintainership duties with the Queen of England.

Note2: If installing from the tarball do note that make install overwrites most of the setup files, all except gdm.conf. It will however save backups with the .orig extension first.
