[ Thanks to jacob berkman for this announcement: ]

This is the first installment of a weekly update on the progress of the GNOME 1.4 "not yet named" release. Work on this release is progressing rapidly, with the first beta release currently scheduled for this Saturday (February 17). For package maintainers:

  • Maintainers of packages that will be included in this beta *must* provide tarballs by the end of Thursday. Please mail gnome-1.4-release-team@gnome.org with information on where to find the tarball.
  • Anybody who is packaging GNOME packages with documentation in it should install scrollkeeper 0.0.5 or later: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=11543
  • Dan will write up instructions on using ScrollKeeper soon. Keep an eye on the news on the GDP web page for an announcement of these instructions: http://developer.gnome.org/projects/gdp/
  • GNOME 1.4 will use Nautilus' gnome-db2html2 converter to display SGML documents. Please make sure that the SGML documents are being installed in addition to the HTML. Also make sure that the SGML is compliant with the 1.4 guidelines: http://developer.gnome.org/projects/gdp/changes/
  • Also, don't forget to mail gnome-i18n@gnome.org a couple of days (which is right now, actually) before making your final tarball for the beta.
For i18n and doc people: For testers:
  • The GNOME 1.4 beta process will include a list of tests for many of the applications. This will be made available later this week, and more information about this will be made at that time.
That's all for now; more information about the release will be available later this week. Thanks,
The GNOME 1.4 Release Team gnome-1.4-release-team@gnome.org
