TARBALLS DUE: GNOME 2.32.0 Beta 2 (2.31.91), and String Freeze

Hello GNOME hackers,

*Tarballs are due* on 2010-08-30 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME
2.31.91 beta release, which will be delivered on Wednesday. Modules
which were proposed for inclusion should try to follow the unstable
schedule so everyone can test them.  Please make sure that your
tarballs will be uploaded before Monday 23:59 UTC: tarballs uploaded
later than that will probably be too late to get in 2.31.91. If you
are not able to make a tarball before this deadline or if you think
you'll be late, please send a mail to the release team and we'll find
someone to roll the tarball for you!

Many deprecation notices landed in GTK+ recently, if you have set your
tarballs to disable deprecated stuff, please make sure they still
build, if it fails, it is of course best to update your code, but you
could also remove the disable deprecated defines from your build
options.  http://blogs.gnome.org/otte/2010/07/27/rendering-cleanup/

We are now entering string freeze :
No string changes may be made without confirmation from the i18n team
and notification to release team, translation team, and documentation
team. From this point, developers can concentrate on stability and
bug-fixing. Translators can work without worrying that the original
English strings will change, and documentation writers can take
accurate screenshots. For the string freezes explained, and to see
which kind of changes are not covered by freeze rules, check

UI Freeze is still in effect :
*No UI changes* may be made at all without confirmation from the
release team and notification to the documentation team; be sure to

To help write *good release notes*, please do add major user-visible
changes happening during the 2.31 release cycle to this wiki page:
