GNOME 2.28.0 Beta 1 (2.27.90) Released!

GNOME 2.28.0 Beta 1 (2.27.90) Released!

This is the sixth development release, and the first beta, towards our
2.28 release that will happen in September 2009.  By now most things are
in place, and your mission is easy: Go download it. Go compile it. Go
test it.  And go hack on it, document it, translate it, fix it.

With this release, we are now even more frozen; developer API/ABI were
already, and at this point all new API are hopefully documented; no UI
changes may be made without approval from the release team and
notification to the documentation project, and no new features without
approval from the release team.  We also remain in the string change
announcement period -- all string changes must be announced to both
the gnome-doc-list and gnome-i18n lists.

To compile GNOME 2.27.90, you can use GARNOME [1] (which supports users
and has additional/different modules available), or the jhbuild [2]
modulesets [3] (which use the exact tarball versions from the official

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.
