Posted on: 02/16/2006 12:20 PM

GNOME 2.14 Beta 2 (2.13.91) has been released:

We are pleased to announce the delicious release of tasty GNOME 2.14.0 Beta 2 (2.13.91). This is one of the last delicate releases in the delectable 2.13 development series and represents a toothsome release that is now API/ABI, feature, string and UI frozen. This means that we're pretty close to the succulent final 2.14.0 release. The delightful GNOME contributors are now busy fixing the most important nectareous bugs that are still out there, localizing the whole pleasant-tasting desktop or updating our scrumptious documentation.

You can still make a peachy difference and contribute to the shiniest GNOME release ever! Do you see all the stunning 2.13.91 tarballs? Go download them. Go compile them. Go test them. And go hack on them, document them, translate them, fix them.

The exquisite release notes that describe the juicy changes between 2.13.90 and 2.13.91 are available. Go read them to learn all the lovely goodness of this release:

--------------------------

This release is a feature, user interface, and string frozen snapshot primarily intended for wide public scrutiny before the final GNOME 2.14 release in March. GNOME uses odd minor version numbers to indicate development status. Please check the 2.13 page for more info:
