GNOME 3.29.2 released


GNOME 3.29.2, the second unstable release in the 3.30 development
cycle, is now available.

If you want to compile GNOME 3.29.2 by yourself, you can use the
official BuildStream project snapshot. Thanks to BuildStream's build
sandbox, it should build reliably for you regardless of the
dependencies on your host system:

One of the news from last release is that the CI of gnome-build-meta
git repo (which is used to build the whole GNOME) is now building for
aarch64 additionaly to x86_64. Thanks to the
https://www.worksonarm.com/ folks for the machine donation!

Build Failures
--------------
Instead of including a skip list of failing modules, I will just note
here which modules were unable to build and for what reason, it looks
like the majority of failures are due to lack of fresh tarballs:

o gnome-system-monitor: Changed to use meson, new release
tarball exists but lacks the meson.build

WARNING!
--------
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 3.29, the full schedule, the official module
lists and the proposed module lists, please see our 3.29 wiki page:
