GNOME 2.24.0 Beta 1 (2.23.91) has been released

Wow. While smoketesting GNOME 2.23.91 (see for more details about smoketesting -- I'm sure we could have people helping there, just mail the release team or me if you're interested), I found about the new truly awesome backgrounds that we ship. There was a small blog post about this, but it's hard to understand how hugely fantastic they are until you play with them. I mean, I'm to the point where I don't know which background I want to use now! The art community did an impressively great job! Now that I know about this, you should really try GNOME 2.24.0 Beta 2 to try those backgrounds out. And get all the latest fixes.

The release notes that describe the changes between 2.23.90 and 2.23.91 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,
