GARNOME 0.10.5: "42 Days, 42 Nights"

GARNOME 0.10.5 - the bad-ass, bleeding edge GNOME distribution for testers
and tweakers everywhere - is ready for more tire-kicking and bug-bashing. If
you're dying to try the GNOME 2.0 Desktop, but don't want to fall into the
depraved addictions and co-dependencies of testing from anonymous CVS, then
GARNOME is for you.


RAAAWK! So close to release it hurts. Next week is release candidate time,
and our release critical bugs are being jumped on left, right and centre.
Not many new treats in this release, but plenty of updates to the major
desktop components and platform libraries. Noice.

I recommend building afresh prefix, otherwise much arse will be left over
from your previous builds. It's always good to clear that out before trying
updated GARNOME releases.

What's New?

  - Update to latest weekly snapshot.
  - New: gthumb, by Paolo Bacchilega, now ported to the GNOME 2 platform!
    Very spiffy.
  - New: gnome-hacker-tools meta garball, currently just for Glade, but
    there'll be more there soon.
  - Updated: KDE 3.0.1 (KDE 3.0 was the surprise in the previous release,
    for those who don't look at their directory listings close enough). Try
    it out!
  - Fixed: Added some bits to for future use.

Where do I get it?

The tarball and documentation are available on the GARNOME website:

Happy Testing!
