GNOME 2.29.1 Released
Posted on: 10/30/2009 11:00 AM

The GNOME 2.29.1 Development Release has been released:

We're only a few days after 2.28.1, and 2.29.1 is already there! We have some brave people who did some amazing work for this release, with new features in various modules. And of course, the numerous bug fixes that we're all used to. It's really exciting to already be able to play with some nifty new features: it announces some great fun during the next few months. Of course, some tarballs are still in the 2.28 era, but that's mostly because the tarballs due mail was late (you can blame your favorite release team member for this -- hopefully, I'm not your favorite one ;-)).

Oh, and with the release team meeting this week-end for new module decisions, it means 2.29.2 will surely be full of awesomeness brought by new modules. To make this a good ride, we should make sure the old modules offer some competition to the new code, with great changes for users everywhere!

To compile GNOME 2.29.1, you can the jhbuild [1] modulesets [2] (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.
