GNOME 2.31.5 unstable release

GNOME 2.31.5 Development Release

GUADEC is in ten days, and if there is a team you will want to chase
down it's obviously the release team; we have been pushing all of you
hard to get modules ported to GTK+ 3, GSettings, GApplication... but
it's worth it, and you did a fantastic job!

2.31.5 is out and features a lot of modules ported to GTK+ 3; oh sure
there are bugs, and disabled features, but 1) this is temporary, and
2) this should be seen as an opportunity for sleepless nights in The
Hague. Isn't it a wonderful world?

But there is no reason to wait for the Netherlands, so go download it,
go compile it, go test it.  And go hack on it, document it, translate
it, fix it.

Do note that starting with this release, some freezes are in action:

* String Change Announcement Period: string changes must be announced
  to gnome-doc-list and gnome-i18n.
* UI Change Announcement Period: UI changes must be announced to

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
