GNOME 2.15.2 Released!

GNOME 2.15.2 Development Release

Some people commented that the 2.15.1 announce contained too many
exclamation marks in only one sentence. Now, this is an important thing
to fix. It's true (is it?!?) that we need (do we?!?) to write good
announcements, that are readable by everyone. That's why I propose
to write them in French, a language that everyone should know and that
is really easy to learn (really, you just have to remember about some
thousands of exceptions). Ceci n'est absolument pas une conspiration
francophone. D'ailleurs, ni Frédéric, ni Sébastien, ni Daniel, ni
quiconque d'autre n'est au courant. Je profite de cette annonce pour
proposer d'utiliser le Français comme langue par défaut dans GNOME dès
sa prochaine version, sauf opposition d'au moins une personne. On ne
pourra pas dire que je n'ai pas essayé ;-)

This is our second development release on our road towards GNOME 2.16.0,
which will be released in September 2006. GNOME 2.15.2 works well and
you should definitely try it to see how well it works. So go download it.
Go compile it. Go test it. And go hack on it, document it, translate it,
fix it.

Note that both libxml2 and libxslt tarballs need a patch [1] and that
the libxml2 tarball also needs a second patch [2].


To compile GNOME 2.15.2, 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 shiny 2.15 page:

We hope you'll love it,
