GNOME 2.91.5 released
Posted on: 01/13/2011 01:31 PM

The GNOME 2.91.5 Development Release is now available

And here comes the first release of 2011. We decided to skip 2.91.4
because of various blockers that we found, and because people were not
available during the holidays to fix them quickly enough. So it's been a
long time since the last release, and I do think this release was worth
the wait. It's working quite well, and the rough edges we had for 3.0
are all disappearing with time, which is good! But of course, it's not
perfect yet :-) The good news is that we still have quite some time to
reach perfection. Yes, that's our goal!

You all know what you have to do now. Go download it. Go compile it. Go
test it. And go hack on it, document it, translate it, fix it.

To compile GNOME 2.91.5, you can the jhbuild [1] modulesets [2] (which
use the exact tarball versions from the official 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.

module lists, please see our colorful 2.91 page on the wiki:

We hope you'll love it,
