GNOME 2.15.3 Development Release is now available:

It is that time again. Time to get it, time to build it and time to test it. The GNOME Release Team is proud to present the 2.15.3 development release.

This is our third development release on our road towards GNOME 2.16.0, which will be released in September 2006. So go download it. Go compile it. Go test it. And go hack on it, document it, translate it, fix it.

Note that gnome-applets, deskbar-applet and pygtk all need patches which can be found here


To compile GNOME 2.15.3, you can use GARNOME (will be released soon), or the jhbuild modulesets available at:
