Gnome-Utils 2.13.4 - "Ubiquitous X-Ray"

Hey all,

Gnome-utils 2.13.4 - "Ubiquitous X-Ray" - is out.

This is the fourth release of gnome-utils in the unstable gnome 2.13
series. This is unstable software, which means you should install it on
every computer you can find, especially that server which everyone
relies upon at work. For added fun, remember to run everything as root.
Try removing random files, and see what happens.

It is available at :

* What is it ?

Gnome-utils is a collection of useful utilities for the GNOME desktop
that make your life easier, including:
 * GNOME Search Tool
 * GNOME Dictionary
 * GNOME Floppy
 * GNOME Log Viewer
 * GNOME Screenshot

* What's new ?

After three months of fast and crazy and steady work, the new and 
improved GNOME Dictionary has finally landed inside the main branch of
Gnome-utils.  The new code-base aims to maintainability and to ease of
extension: the application and the applet code have been completely
re-designed in an object oriented fashion, to allow the addition of new
dictionary sources in a simple yet powerful way.  We didn't stop here,
though, and added tons of features, like a better printed output; the
ability to save the definitions into a text file; keyboard navigation
inside the definitions; a new "search-as-you-type" find pane; a new
applet, using a single window "attached" to the panel.

Obviously, the other utilities didn't lag behind: the Search Tool now
remembers the size and state of its window across sessions; we also
closed another slew of bugs since the last release.

Details follow.
