A new bug fix version of Evolution, the GNOME groupware suite, is out.

Release notes are here:

For the record, 1.4.1 and 1.4.2 haven't been released because of some last-minute problems that we found while packaging them.

gnome-games 2.3.5

This nearly didn't make it. Seconds after having successfully backed up my my source tree and uploaded this release my development machine froze and refused to boot. I really don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing.

It's lucky to be alive! Download it now from your favourite mirror or use this fine URL:

http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/gnome-games/2.3/gnome-games-2.3.5.tar.gz.md5

And finally the actual release notes:

gnome-games "Palm Cove" 2.3.5

This release is a little early since I'm going to be away during the "official" release period. My location will of course be a closely guarded secret.

There is but one major change, most of the names have changed ! This hasn't been done to protect the innocent, or event the particularly guilty. Instead it is an attempt to get rid of GNOME-this and GNOME-that in the menus (as per the HIG). So "GNOME Robots" has become "Robots" and "GTali" has become "Tali". This change only affects the menus.

The down side of this is that "glines" has become "Lines" and "GNOME-Stones" has become "Stones". Anyone who has a better idea can post suggestions under bug #117191 in Bugzilla.

Gnometris stays as Gnometris because it's really hard to avoid the trade-marked "Tetris" and still be descriptive.

The other user-visible change is that the gnomine (sorry, "Mines") window is now completely resizable and the size of the individual tiles follows the size of the window (the numbers and icons scale too). The explicit "mine size" item in the preferences dialog is gone.

There were also some minor fixes, some of them very embarrassing to the maintainer.
