First Release to GNOME software map





GARNOME 0.14.0

GARNOME 0.14.0: "Shoes with Zippers"

GARNOME - the bad-ass, bleeding edge GNOME distribution for testers and
tweakers everywhere. If you're dying to test the latest GNOME 2.0 Desktop
releases, but don't want to fall into the depraved addictions and
co-dependencies of testing from anonymous CVS, then GARNOME is for you.

[ In other words, GARNOME is a build tool for GNOME 2.x which includes the
developer platform and desktop releases, as well as a host of other software
ported to the GNOME 2.x platform. Everything is as easy to build as 'make
install'. We call it a 'distribution' because it's sanity-tested and often
patched before release, for your convenience and enjoyment. ;-) ]

What's New?

  * Update to what will most likely be the GNOME 2.0.2 RC2 tarballs.

  * Added: goats - a sticky notes applet, gcalctool - a scientific
    calculator, quick-lounge-applet - a launcher applet, and redhat-artwork
    - some cool stuff from Red Hat's (null) beta (without the copyrighted
    and trademarked stuff).

  * Updated heaps of stuff. :-)

  * Please note that there are some issues with gnome-vfs in this release;
    there were some bugs in the recent tarball release with regards to menu
    items and such. They'll be fixed for 2.0.2 proper. :-)

Where Do I Get It?

The tarball and documentation [1] are available on the GARNOME website:


Enjoy G2D and GARNOME. :-)

[1] People who don't read the documentation tend to look pretty silly on
garnome-list and in #garnome.

        Web development with PHP is like injecting pure rust with a         
                    high-pressure hose. For pain relief.
