GNOME 2.27.1 Released
Posted on: 05/08/2009 09:29 AM

The GNOME 2.27.1 Development Release is available

Today marks the beginning of our trip towards 2.28, with the first development release of this cycle. It's also our first release after our git migration and it seems we survived, yay! :-) Looking at the changes in the various tarballs, the trend to remove libgnome* and libglade dependencies is still going on. Which hopefully means it will stop soon (when all modules will have been migrated). There are quite a few patches waiting in bugzilla for this, which is a good sign! Everybody keep an eye on the targets that were set for each release -- see the last column at

To compile GNOME 2.27.1, you can 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,
