good news, everyone! here's the shiny new release of the GNOME Utilities, the first of the 2.18 stable cycle. thanks to the hard work of the gnome-utils maintainers, developers, documenters and translators, this release is ready to rock your world. for those not following the development releases, here's what's changed since the last stable release:

* Baobab
+ Show the type of file system in the preferences dialog
+ Removed the search function, as it replicated the search tool
+ Added the ring chart view to immediately show the disk usage
+ Reduced the memory usage

* Dictionary
+ Better support for multi-head environments
+ Automatically look up the selected word
+ Show cross-references as clickable links
+ Allow editing of dictionary sources
+ Add a Thai dictionary source

* Floppy
+ GFloppy build can be explicitly disabled

* Screenshot
+ Fix drag and drop of the preview image
+ Show an interactive dialog when launched from the menu or the panel

* Search Tool
+ Fix collisions when moving files to the Trash

* System Log Viewer
+ Fix behaviour when the log files are moved or deleted

and, obviously, loads of bugs have been fixed in every component of the
