Hello all, Wow! The snow finally melt and there is a timid but still bright sun illuminating my desktop. That's my *physical* desktop, and it's nice but even nicer is my *computer* desktop, there is a new GNOME on it! It is 2.29.91! I am so happy, this is our beta release, be sure to give it a try! With this release we are now string frozen, no string changes may be made without confirmation from the l10n team (gnome-i18n@) and notification to both the release team and the GNOME Documentation Project (gnome-doc-list@). The other freezes are of course still in place, details on http://live.gnome.org/ReleasePlanning/Freezes To compile GNOME 2.29.91, you can use the jhbuild  modulesets published by the release team  (which use the exact tarball versions from the official release).  http://library.gnome.org/devel/jhbuild/  http://download.gnome.org/teams/releng/2.29.91/ The release notes that describe the changes between 2.29.90 and 2.29.91 are available.
