gnome-games 2.5.7

gnome-games "Problem Child" 2.5.7

This is the long-awaited beta for 2.6. As far as I know there are no bugs that crash any of the the games or make them unplayable. I expect this to change once you test it and file what you find in Bugzilla. The documentation is the only thing expected to change before 2.6.0.

So what is new this time ?

Bug fixes.
Gnometris now has some basic documentation. There is a new tileset for mahjongg thanks to Gonzalo Odiard.

Revelation 0.2.0

Revelation is a password manager for the GNOME 2 desktop. It organizes accounts in a tree structure, and stores them as AES-encrypted XML files.

This version introduces a new, more secure file format, while still retaining read-support for the old file format. Data import/export functionality has also been added, and it currently has support for files in Figaro's Password Manager and XML formats. There have also been improvements to the account types, some usability improvements and a few bugfixes.
