GNOME Development Release 2.5.1: "Hey, at least I'm housebroken."

The GNOME Development Release 2.5.1: "Hey, at least I'm housebroken", is
ready for your bug-busting and testing pleasure! It is available for
immediate download on ftp.gnome.org and mirrors:


  tar.gz:   162M total
  tar.bz2:  120M total


This release is a snapshot of development code. Although it is buildable and
usable, it is primarily intended for testing and hacking purposes. Like the
Linux kernel, GNOME uses odd minor version numbers to indicate development
status. Please check the 2.5 start page for more information:


Proposed Modules

A number of new software modules have been PROPOSED for inclusion in the
next major GNOME release. You can find a list of these modules on the 2.5
modules list page:


Build Requirements

  - The tarballs included in the release. :-)

  - Some very basic packages not distributed with this release, such as
    image libraries, popt, and the freedesktop.org libraries collection.
    These should all be included with or available for your distribution.

  - Docbook DTD 4.1.2, Docbook XSL stylesheets and a valid system catalogue
    file for scrollkeeper (which in turn is required by many desktop
    components for documentation).

Happy testing!

- The GNOME Release Team
