GNOME Shell 2.29.0 released

GNOME Shell 2.29.0 is now available at:

7429cd9689e1a2e302b1c23e06c576ee6b0542a7f1c72c4c0efce3d83842aa58 gnome-shell-2.29.0.tar.bz2
bc1dd6426c59e4a93d2768c408d5b34181aa722d5e83ea4c811c1eb19261e3f5 gnome-shell-2.29.0.tar.gz

Note on Clutter requirement: Due to problems encountered in testing 
  GNOME Shell against Clutter 1.1, gnome-shell-2.29.0 still requires
  Clutter 1.0. We expect to have the problems in Clutter and gnome-shell
  resolved before the release of gnome-shell-2.29.1, and switch over
  to requiring Clutter 1.1 for that.

About GNOME Shell

GNOME Shell provides core user interface functions for the GNOME 3
desktop, like switching to windows and launching applications. 
GNOME Shell takes advantage of the capabilities of modern graphics
hardware and introduces innovative user interface concepts to 
provide a visually attractive and easy to use experience.

This is still a VERY EARLY version of GNOME Shell and should not be
taken of indicative of the final user interface or performance.

We are providing tarball releases at this point largely to allow
distributions to start building packaging for GNOME Shell. If you are
interested in building GNOME Shell from source, we would recommend
building from version control using the build script described at:

Not only will that give you the very latest version of this rapidly
changing project, it will be much easier than get GNOME Shell and
its dependencies to build from tarballs.
