GNOME Development Release 2.7.2

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!

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).

Happy testing!
