ANNOUNCE: gnome-core released

I'm pleased to announce the immediate availability of a much improved
gnome-core package. This also contains some new features:

- builtin screendump functionality in the panel (alt+prtsc)
- translucent panel
- much improved session management

As always - new code equals new bugs - so please test the new
functionality and report all bugs to
(remember - always use the latest bug-buddy :)
