GDM2 (unstable), the "Disappearing libgnome" release]


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

The release is an unstable release of GDM2
which has a few minor improvements, see below.

Changes: stuff:

- Minor UI improvements to gdmsetup (Dennis Cranston,
  Calum Benson)

- Removed libgnome dependencies for all GDM programs
  except gdmflexiserver and gdmsetup.  These should be
  fixed for the next release.  (Jani Monoses,
  Brian Cameron)

- Now communications protocol used by client does not
  shut down after each call, improves performance.
  (Brian Cameron)

- More clear stability information about gdm.conf file
  in README (Brian Cameron)

- Translation updates (Takeshi AIHANA,
  \305\275ygimantas Beru\304\215ka,
  Theppitak Karoonboonyanan, Kjartan Maraas,
  Christophe Merlet, Francisco Javier F. Serrador,
  \303\205smund Skj\303\246veland, Alexander Shopov,
  Marcel Telka, Miloslav Trmac, Ignacio Casal Quinteiro,
  Adam Weinberger)

Note:  GDM2 was originally written by Martin K. Petersen <mkp mkp net>.
Much work has been done on GDM2 by George Lebl, and Brian Cameron
currently shares maintainership duties with the Queen of England.

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,
