gnome-bluetooth 2.27.6


gnome-bluetooth 2.27.6, the Bluetooth utilities for the GNOME desktop
has just had a new release.

Plenty of changes for people to test. The wizard and applet in
particular have seen a lot of changes since the previous release.

Bugs go to the GNOME Bugzilla, discussions should go to the
gnome-bluetooth mailing-list.
