GNOME Development Release 2.7.2 has been released

This release is a snapshot of development code. Although it is buildable and usable, it is primarily intended for testing and hacking purposes. Like the Linux kernel, GNOME uses odd minor version numbers to indicate development status. Please check the 2.7 start page for more information:

Build Requirements

- The tarballs included in the release. :):
- Some very basic packages not distributed with this release, such as image libraries, popt, and the libraries collection. Most of these will be included with or available for your distribution, except the 'shared-mime-info' and 'hicolor-theme' modules - if you don't install those, your desktop will look ugly, but it will work.
- Docbook DTD 4.1.2, Docbook XSL stylesheets and a valid system catalogue file for scrollkeeper (which in turn is required by many desktop components for documentation).

We're doing something a bit different with this release - finally splitting up the Desktop, Platform and Bindings suites, and releasing them all in one hit. Enjoy!
