GNOME 2.23.1 Released
Posted on: 04/23/2008 09:05 PM

The GNOME 2.23.1 Development Release has been released:

Welcome to the 2.23 development cycle! This is the first release in our trip to GNOME 2.24, which will be out in September, in around five months. We'll hopefully enjoy some nice new bugs and crashes, while we'll have to live with new features, improvements or fixes. To be honest, I was a bit sad when I smoketested this release because I was expecting to see way more problems. I didn't even see a single crash. Isn't this sad? Maybe I didn't try hard enough and you'll be able to find some of them -- think about your bugzilla points and file them!

The roadmap for 2.24 is still a work in progress, but many contributors already know what they want to work on and, as usual, many changes are planned. So you can be sure this development cycle will be a fun ride!

To compile GNOME 2.23.1, you can use GARNOME (which supports users and has additional/different modules available), or the jhbuild modulesets (which use the exact tarball versions from the official release):

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.

We hope you'll love it,
