Gnome-Utils 2.13.5 - "Optimized for Size"

Hey all,

Gnome-utils 2.13.5- "Optimized for Size" - is out.

This is the fifth 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[1].

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 ?

This release of gnome-utils features the usage of the new slab allocator
added to GLib 2.9.1 by the fine Tim 'rambokid' Janik.  Thanks to the
hard work of the GLib people, now every memory allocation should be
faster and take less overhead.  This also means that, in order to build
and use Search Tool and Dictionary you'll have to use a release of GLib
greater or equal than 2.9.1.

Details follow.

GNOME Utilities 2.13.5 (January 16th 2006) - "Optimized for Size"

    * This release of gnome-utils requires GLib >= 2.9.1 in order
      use GLib's new slab allocator called GSlice.  This will make
      our own allocations faster and with less overhead.
