Announcing Orca v2.20.0.1

* What is Orca?

Orca is a free, open source, flexible, and extensible screen reader
that provides access to the graphical desktop via user-customizable
combinations of speech, braille, and/or magnification.  Orca
development has been led by the Sun Microsystems, Inc., Accessibility
Program Office via continued engagement with its end users and
generous contributions from wonderful community members.

This is an stable release meant to help some distributions that are
planning milestone release prior to the availability of GNOME 2.20.1
(e.g., Ubuntu Gutsy).  We will be releasing a stable Orca v2.20.1
release as planned for GNOME 2.20.1 in a week.  That release will
build on this release.
