GNOME 2.6 Desktop & Developer Platform BETA 2 (2.5.91)
Posted on: 03/12/2004 06:42 PM

GNOME 2.6 Desktop Developer Platform BETA 2 (2.5.91) has been released:

Announcing... The second BETA release of the GNOME 2.6 Desktop Developer Platform! That's right - it's almost here, and it's your chance to have a sneak preview, and hopefully beat out some of the last remaining bugs before our final release.  ;) You can find a summary of the changes between 2.5.91 and the previous 2.5.90 release below (which now documents updated modules that didn't have NEWS entries too).

http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/desktop/2.5/2.5.91/sources/

tar.gz: 136M total
tar.bz2: 98M total

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
--------------------------

This "BETA" release is not the final GNOME 2.6 release, but is intended for widespread testing among our user community. Like the Linux kernel, GNOME uses odd minor version numbers to indicate development status. Please check the 2.5 start page for more information:

http://www.gnome.org/start/2.5/


Build Requirements
------------------

- The tarballs included in the release. :)

- Some very basic packages not distributed with this release, such as image libraries, popt, and the freedesktop.org libraries collection. Most of these will be included with or available for your distribution, except the 'shared-mime-info' and 'hicolor-theme' modules - if you don't install those, your desktop will look ugly, but it will work. :)

- Docbook DTD 4.1.2, Docbook XSL stylesheets and a valid system catalogue file for scrollkeeper (which in turn is required by many desktop components for documentation).

Happy testing!

- The GNOME Release Team

This is the release candidate for 2.6. In an ideal world there would be
no major bugs in this release. Here in the real world there will be a

updates and more translations.

Bugzilla. The documentation is the only thing expected to change
before 2.6.0.

So what is new this time ?

Bug fixes.
