Posted on: 02/03/2005 01:44 PM

The first beta of GNOME 2.10 has been released

Also known as 2.9.90, GNOME 2.10 Beta 1 is the first pre-release intended for wide public scrutiny before the final release in March. It is packed full of tasty GNOME goodness, so if you're itching to find out what we've been doing, and can't wait to finish building it, take a look at Davyd's Sneak Peek for this release:

In addition to all the tasty new GNOME goodness, we've packed a lot of bug fixing into this release. The conservative, lossy count of bugs fixed over the 2.9 development period: 1134 http://tinyurl.com/4yutl. Meanwhile, we do have a few showstoppers to fix before 2.10: http://tinyurl.com/657ob, so leap in and help us crunch the remaining few... Or find some we haven't
seen yet! :)

TESTING! TESTING! TESTING!
--------------------------

This release is a feature frozen snapshot primarily intended for wide public scrutiny before the final GNOME 2.10 release in March. Like the good old days of Linux kernel development, GNOME uses odd minor version numbers to indicate development status. Please check the 2.9 start page for more info:

Happy testing!
