Posted on: 09/12/2009 12:30 PM

GNOME 2.28.0 Release Candidate (2.27.92) has been released. Here the announcement:

We're a few days before the hard code freeze for 2.28.0, and having tried 2.27.92, I think we have something good there. Actually, better than just good. But well, we still have a few days to fix this pet bug that annoys so many people -- I even heard that, in case you'd be a bit late, some release team people can give +1 to freeze break requests if you have the right arguments. And food is always a good argument. But I can't tell who those people are. Or maybe I can, if you have the right arguments...

To compile GNOME 2.27.92, you can use the jhbuild [3] modulesets [4] (which use the exact tarball versions from the official release):

This release is a feature, user interface and string frozen snapshot primarily intended for wide public scrutiny before the final GNOME 2.28 release in September. GNOME uses odd minor version numbers to indicate development status.

We hope you'll love it,
