For Developers and Testers!

This release is a feature-frozen, development series snapshot. It is used by
developers and testers as their day-to-day working desktop, and is ready for
wider testing by our user community. Like the Linux kernel, GNOME uses odd
minor version numbers to indicate development status, so this 2.3.x series
will eventually become the official 2.4 release. Please check the 2.3 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 freetype. These should all be included with or
    available for your distribution.

  - Xft2 and fontconfig for superior font rendering and configuration,
    preferably from NOT XFree86 4.3.x.

  - 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).

Happy testing!
