GNOME Power Manager 2.31.6

Version 2.31.6
Released: 2010-08-06

* Important note:
 - This is 2.31.6, which is forked from the gnome-2-30 branch.
 - If you have been using 2.31.5 or any earlier 2.31 version, then you will
   notice the UI and functionality going back in time. This is unfortunate.
 - GNOME 3 has been pushed back 6 months, and the GSettings and GtkApplication
   code is not ready for prime-time just yet. I'm not willing to add multiple
   levels of ifdef'd code for the n-permutations of distros on different GTK
   and GLib versions, so people are just going to make do with 3.30.x with
   a few backported bugs and translation fixes. I do apologise to the
   translators, who have wasted some time on translating git master.
 - This release does not use the new control center panel, GDBus or GSettings.
 - I don't intend on wasting time backporting features from git master into
   GNOME 2.32.x. Bugfixes will be, where they make sense.
 - In my personal opinion, GNOME 2.32.0 is going to blow goats.
