GARNOME Preview Three: "Jag förlorade mina byxor, men fann kärleken."
=====================================================================

GARNOME 0.7.5 - the bad-ass, bleeding edge GNOME distribution for testers
and tweakers everywhere - is ready for more tire-kicking and bug-bashing. If
you're dying to try the GNOME 2.0 Desktop, but don't want to fall into the
depraved addictions and co-dependencies of testing from anonymous CVS, then
GARNOME is for you.

This release is very worthwhile for testers - please leap on the GNOME 2.0
Desktop testing bandwagon! Join uber-bug-meister Luis Villa in the #bugs
channel on irc.gnome.org to contribute.


What's New?
-----------

  - Updated packages to most recent snapshot status including: eel, gedit2,
    gnome-applets, gnome-desktop, gnome-media, gnome-mime-data, gnome-panel,
    gnome-session, gnome-system-monitor, gnome-utils, gnome-vfs, libglade
    and nautilus.

  - Points to snapshot directory on ftp ftp.gnome.org, because pointing to
    latest/sources is silly!

  - Added aclocaldir patch to librep garball from Dan Nicolaescu. Thanks!


Where do I get it?
------------------

The tarball and documentation is available on the GARNOME website:

  http://www.gnome.org/~jdub/garnome/


Happy Testing!

- Jeff
