I proudly present Gnome Specimen 0.2, your favourite tool for previewing and
comparing fonts. It has been a while since the initial Gnome Specimen
release happened. Since then, development has slowed down a bit... however,
Gnome Specimen is still alive!

User-visible changes in this release:

  * New artwork: application icon and image in about dialog
  * Show previews for all font styles when a font family is
  * Don't ellipsize the preview texts, scroll instead
  * Use a more common pangram as the default preview text
  * Allow zooming using ctrl-mousewheel
  * Consistently use the correct application name
  * Respect theme colors

Other changes:

  * Store settings and defaults in GConf
  * Allow running from the source directory
  * Changed license to GPL only (copy-pasted boilerplate referred to LGPL
    as well)
  * Better Python module checking

Translation updates (the Gnome community rocks):

  * Brazilian Portuguese (Vinicius Depizzol)
  * British English (Alex Jones)
  * Catalan (Josep Puigdemont)
  * Chinese (Lew Harper)
  * Czech (Vitezslav Kotrla)
  * Dutch (Wouter Bolsterlee)
  * Finnish (Kalle Vahlman)
  * French (Yan Brodeur)

There's a provisionary Debian package as well, thanks to Daniel Holbach of
Ubuntu fame. He has also uploaded Gnome Specimen 0.2 to Ubuntu Gutsy, so it
is apt-gettable already! In the mean time, Debian and Ubuntu users may just
download the file and run dpkg -i gnome-specimen_0.2-0_all.deb (as root) to
install it.
