GNOME 2.25.1 Development Release has been released

And here's the beginning of a new cycle! 2.25.1 marks the first release towards our 2.26 release that will happen in March 2009. Until then, I'm sure we'll see some good changes going on -- like all the efforts about getting rid of libgnome or cleaning up various things. Isn't this wonderful? I do think it is, and I hope you all agree. At least, you should. Really. Because it means we're alive and kicking! (I was going to sing the song, but, hrm, no, you don't want to hear me sing)

To compile GNOME 2.25.1, 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):

The release notes that describe the changes between 2.24.1 and 2.25.1 are available. Go read them to learn all the goodness of this 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.

For more information about 2.25, the full schedules, the official modules list and the proposed modules list, please see our 2.25 page:

We hope you'll love it,
