ANNOUNCE : Gnome-utils 2.13.1

Hey all,

Gnome-utils 2.13.1 is out.
This is the first release EVER in the unstable Gnome 2.13 series. This
is unstable software, very unstable. Bad things could happen, very bad
things. You don't even want to think about it. You really oughta know
what you're doing. This could mess up your life. Seriously. Then
again, who wants to live forever ?

It is available at :

* What is it ?

Gnome-utils is a collection of useful utilities for the GNOME desktop
that make your life easier, including:
 * GNOME Search Tool
 * GNOME Dictionary
 * GNOME Floppy
 * GNOME Log Viewer
 * GNOME Screenshot

* What's new ? (some fixes)

Most changes in these releases happened in the Log Viewer. It is now
approximately 34325325% faster, while using only a third of the memory
it used to. Log monitoring also works properly now, using gnome-vfs
and other sweet stuff, and updates show up in real time. It remembers
your session and restores your settings at logon, which previous
versions did not care much about (shame on them). Log switching is
instantaneous, thank you very much. Try it out. You'll like it.
For extra fun, open lots of big logs, then launch the 2.12 version.

Of course, we also have a lot of nice improvements and fixes in the
other modules.

In the next release, one of our characters should die, only to be
reborn again (with super powers).
Hint :
Stay tuned.
