GNOME 2.26.0 Release Candidate (2.25.92) has been released

My friends, we're nearly there! 2.26.0 will be out in two weeks. Yes, it will! I tell you so. And it will be a milestone in our history. Sure, it will! You don't doubt it. Because it's looking quite good. It definitely does! Ask around you to check. And people will love it. That's for sure! Make people try it. But we can still work a bit more on polishing GNOME for the prime time.

In the next ten days, we should all try to focus on the list of showstoppers and try to close as many of them as possible. It's also a good time to help Davyd write the release notes -- this is quite important to get some good material explaining what we've been working on in the last six months.

To compile GNOME 2.25.92, you can use the jhbuild modulesets (which use the exact tarball versions from the official release):

http://download.gnome.org/teams/releng/2.25.92/

The release notes that describe the changes between 2.25.91 and 2.25.92 are available. Go read them to learn all the goodness of this release:

TESTING! TESTING! TESTING!
--------------------------

This release is a feature, user interface and string frozen snapshot primarily intended for wide public scrutiny before the final GNOME 2.26 release in September. GNOME uses odd minor version numbers to indicate development status.

For more information about 2.25, the full schedules and the official modules list, please see our 2.25 page:

We hope you'll love it,
