GNOME 2.24.0 Beta 1 (2.23.90) has been released

Oops, I did it again. This release is one day late for various reasons, including loss of battery power and laptop brokenness. There were also other unrelated things that slowed everything down but you don't want to hear about all that, do you? It's all my fault. Or maybe not. You know what, it really sounds like a conspiracy of people trying to force us to not release the first beta of GNOME 2.24.0. I even heard people talking about The Swedish Conspiracy... Hrm. Who knows?

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.

The release notes that describe the changes between 2.23.6 and 2.23.90 are available. Go read them to learn all the goodness of this release:

This release is a feature and user interface frozen snapshot primarily intended for wide public scrutiny before the final GNOME 2.24 release in September. GNOME uses odd minor version numbers to indicate development status.

We hope you'll love it,
