GNOME 3.7.90 beta development release


the first beta release of development cycle heading to GNOME 3.8 is
finally available.
Sorry for the delay, some technical and personal problems make the release to
take more time than expected.
With this release we are officially now in "The Freeze" [1]:

- UI Freeze: No UI changes may be made without approval from the
release-team and
      notification to gnome-doc-list <at> gnome.org;
- Feature Freeze: new functionality is implemented now; API/ABI Freeze
for 3.7.x:
      Developer APIs should be frozen at this point;
- String Change Announcement Period: All string changes must be
announced to both
      gnome-i18n <at> gnome.org and gnome-doc-list <at> gnome.org.

More details about changes and news for this beta are available here:

JHBuild modulesets to compile GNOME 3.7.90 by hand are available here


Check the Smoketesting document [1] for instructions about how to compile
and test GNOME with these modulesets.


This release is a snapshot of development code. Although it is
buildable and usable, it is primarily intended for testing and hacking
purposes. GNOME uses odd minor version numbers to indicate development

For more information about 3.8, the full schedule, the official module
lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colourful 3.8
