GNOME 2.18.0 Beta 2 (2.17.92) Released!

GNOME 2.18.0 Beta 2 (2.17.91)

Today, one of our heroes, Lucas Rocha, is explaining us what's happening
with this release:

Love is in the air! The GNOME 2.18.0 Beta 2 release is out to spread
even more love in this Valentine's day. This is our second beta release
on our road towards GNOME 2.18.0, which will be released in March 2007.
So, If you're feeling alone, give some love to GNOME today by breaking
it, fixing it, translating it, documenting it, and your hapinness is
garanteed tomorrow! Who knows?

This release marks the start of the String Freeze. No, this doesn't
have anything to do with the finnish winter. This means that if you
change any string without approval, there will be a crowd of translators
willing to kill you! You don't want it, right!?

Thanks Lucas! We all love you! Now, please, everybody hugs Lucas.

primarily intended for wide public scrutiny before the final GNOME
2.18 release in March. GNOME uses odd minor version numbers to indicate
development status.
