[ANNOUNCE] Gnome-utils 2.15.0 - "Growing Family"

Good news everyone!

With the start of a new development cycle, the gnome-utils team
unleashes a new release of the GNOME Utilities package: 2.15.0,
codenamed "Growing Family"!

The 2.15.0 release has been called "Growing Family" because sports the
addition of a fine new utility: Baobab, a disk usage analyser; using
Baobab you'll be able to see the disk usage of a folder inside a volume,
both inside a tree and inside a treemap graph.  Baobab has been written
by Fabio Marzocca, a new contributor to GNOME, and has been helped by
Benoit Dejean and Paolo Borelli.  With Baobab, GNOME features a new
utility which offers functionality that users other operating systems
can only access through third party software.

This release is also called "Growing Family" because Jonathan 'jrb'
Blandford, the maintainer of the Screenshot application, has become
father of the little Eleanor[1]: on behalf of the rest of the
gnome-utils maintainers: congrats, jrb!


This is a development release of gnome-utils, so you should really use
it if you want to contribute to GNOME in form of patches, bugs or
cookies to the developers.  Don't install it on every machine you see,
or if you want to bash GNOME.  Really, that would make me feel really
bad; so bad, actually, that only cookies would cheer me up.  So, send us
some cookies.
