Here's the first release after GUADEC. Istanbul. It was a great place. And some people actually had time to visit the beautiful city. Or to take a turkish bath. Sounds like a cool program, doesn't it? Of course, it was not only about this -- there were tons of interesting discussions, lots of sessions around various topics, etc. But you know what? The GNOME contributors actually managed to continue hacking on their modules. Amazing. Those people never stop. I guess it shows how passionate they are! So they made changes that are now visible in this latest version of GNOME. And if you look closely, you can feel some turkish love in the air around this release! Cool stuff.
You all know what you have to do now. Go download it. Go compile it. Go test it. And go hack on it, document it, translate it, fix it.
To compile GNOME 2.23.5, you can use GARNOME (which supports users
and has additional/different modules available), or the jhbuild
modulesets (which use the exact tarball versions from the official
release): http://www.gnome.org/projects/garnome/ http://library.gnome.org/devel/jhbuild/ http://download.gnome.org/teams/releng/2.23.5/

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
This release is a snapshot of development code. Although it is buildable and usable, it is primarily intended for testing and hacking purposes. GNOME uses odd minor version numbers to indicate development status.
