GNOME 2.15.1 Released!

GNOME 2.15.1 Development Release

Welcome to the new GNOME development cycle! Please fasten your seat
belt: you're going to see a lot of exciting new changes!, new features!,
new bugfixes!, new translations!, new documentations!. Lots of modules
have great plans for 2.16 and if you're willing to help, there's a lot
of areas where you'll be heartily welcomed! Don't hesitate to ask how or
where you can help. If you don't even know where to start, just send a
mail to our fantastic gnome-love mailing list.

This is our first development release on our road towards GNOME 2.16.0,
which will be released in September 2006. And I can tell you that GNOME
2.15.1 tastes good. Go download it. Go compile it. Go test it. And go
hack on it, document it, translate it, fix it.

Note that there is an epiphany 2.15.1 release, but it was not included
in GNOME 2.15.1 because it depends on an unreleased GTK+. But it's still
a rocking epiphany release!

To compile GNOME 2.15.1, you can use GARNOME (will be released soon), or
the jhbuild modulesets available at:

This release is a snapshot of development code. Although it is buildable
and usable, it is primarily intended for testing and hacking purposes.
GNOME uses odd minor version numbers to indicate development status.

lists and the proposed modules list, please see our new shiny 2.15 page:

We hope you'll love it,
