[Fwd: ANNOUNCE: GDM (stable), the "Long Live the Queen" release


(If you have no clue what gdm is, skip a few paragraphs down first)

The release of GDM is a minor release that includes a few
translation improvements and a bugfix to correct a problem many users
have complained about, the HaltCommand didn't work in  Now
it should work okay.  Also the Solaris default HaltCommand has been
changed from "init 0" to "init 5" as recommended by the people at Sun
who decide such things.  This release is a refreshment for GNOME 2.10.1.

The next significant release will be 2.8.  Much work has been going on
in CVS head to get rid of deprecated widgets, get GDM to conform with
Usability Recommendations, language improvements, and so on.  There will
also be some interface changes in the 2.8 release.  Refer to the GNOME release notes for details.

Note:  GDM2 was originally written by Martin K. Petersen <mkp mkp net>, and
has for a while now been maintained by the Queen of England.  She is usually
not responsive to bug reports or feature requests.  You can try to send them
to me however.

Note2:  If installing from the tarball do note that make install overwrites
most of the setup files, all except gdm.conf.  It will however save backups
with the .orig extension first.

Note3:  Note3 has been depracated ...

No RPM this time around BTW.  Have fun.  A spec file is included though,
so you can try:

  rpmbuild -ta gdm-whatever.tar.gz

Have fun,
