GConf is a process-transparent configuration database API used to store user preferences. It has pluggable backends and features to support workgroup administration.

This release will likely be the last release made until after the GNOME 2.18 platform release.

Changes since 2.16.1:

- Make sure error strings are utf-8 (Christian Persch)
- don't include xml-entry.h twice (Kjartan Maraas)
- fix leak in gconf meta info code (Richard Hult, Ray Strode)
- remove more popt gunk (Chris Wilson, Ray)
- when installing a batch of schema files, don't abort
the entire transaction if one fails (Laszlo Peter)
- don't close already closed file descriptors if fdwalk()
is available (Padraig O'Briain)
- use g_file_test instead of gconf_file_test or
gconf_file_exists (Paolo Borelli)
- remove dead code found from coverity scan (Paolo)
- retain file permissions on gconf database files when
syncing a tree to disk (Narayana Pattipati)
- Add g_return_val_if_fail checks on type inputs for
gconf_value_new_from_string (Kjartan, Ray)
