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.
- 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
- 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:
Patches are like Free Software love letters.
