Don't have any new year's resolutions? How about testing the very latest GNOME development release?

You are crazy enough to live outside the tropics, and your home heating system just died? Let your computer heat your home for you! How about compiling all the new and shiny code from GNOME?

I'm pleased to announce the release of GNOME 2.13.4. This is the last release in the 2.13 development series before API freeze. Starting now, all GUI and string changes must be notified to the documenters and translators, respectively. Be there or be square.
