Wow we are so late this time -- probably some Debian blood is still flowing through my veins -- but this is really worth it, 2.25.3 is here and there is goodness overflowing.
This is the third development release towards our 2.26 release that will happen in March 2009. By now, development is well under way, and we've already made good progress on some of the goals that we've set ourselves for 2.26 (http://live.gnome.org/GnomeGoals). Keep up the good work !
To compile GNOME 2.25.3, 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/2.25.3/
The release notes that describe the changes between 2.25.2 and 2.25.3 are available. Go read them to learn all the goodness of this release:

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.
For more information about 2.25, the full schedules, the official modules list and the proposed modules list, please see our 2.25 page: http://www.gnome.org/start/unstable/
Also take a look at the abbreviated schedule reminder page at: http://live.gnome.org/Schedule
We hope you'll love it,
