GNOME 2.29.6 Development Release
================================

Here is the second GNOME release for year 2010 and sixth development
release towards our 2.30 release that will happen in March; we are
quickly getting there!

Your mission, it never changes: Go download it. Go compile it. Go test
it. And go hack on it, document it, translate it, fix it. And come to
FOSDEM! There will be both a booth and a developer room for GNOME, and
tons of hackers to hug.

Please note that this milestone marks the beginning of the feature
freeze. This is a good time to start summarizing what has changed in
your modules in this cycle, so that people can work on the release
notes! See http://live.gnome.org/TwoPointTwentynine/ReleaseNotes

Also don't forget we are in those periods:

 * String Change Announcement Period: string changes must be announced
   to gnome-doc-list and gnome-i18n.
 * UI Change Announcement Period: UI changes must be announced to
   gnome-doc-list.


To compile GNOME 2.29.6, you can the jhbuild [1] modulesets [2] (which
use the exact tarball versions from the official release):

 [1] http://library.gnome.org/devel/jhbuild/
 [2] http://download.gnome.org/teams/releng/2.29.6/

The release notes that describe the changes between 2.29.5 and 2.29.6

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
--------------------------

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
status.

For more information about 2.29, the full schedules, the official
modules list and the proposed modules list, please see our 2.29 page:
  http://www.gnome.org/start/unstable/

We hope you'll love it,

    The GNOME Release Team
