GNOME Development Release 2.5.1

GNOME Development Release 2.5.1: "Hey, at least I'm housebroken."

The GNOME Development Release 2.5.1: "Hey, at least I'm housebroken", is ready for your bug-busting and testing pleasure! It is available for immediate download on ftp ftp.gnome.org and mirrors:

http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/desktop/2.5/2.5.1/sources/

tar.gz:162M total
tar.bz2: 120M total

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!

This release is a snapshot of development code. Although it is buildable and usable, it is primarily intended for testing and hacking purposes. Like the Linux kernel, GNOME uses odd minor version numbers to indicate development status. Please check the 2.5 start page for more information:

http://www.gnome.org/start/2.5/

Proposed Modules

A number of new software modules have been PROPOSED for inclusion in the next major GNOME release. You can find a list of these modules on the 2.5 modules list page:

http://www.gnome.org/start/2.5/modules/

Build Requirements

  • The tarballs included in the release. :-)
  • Some very basic packages not distributed with this release, such as image libraries, popt, and the freedesktop.org libraries collection. These should all be included with or available for your distribution.
  • Docbook DTD 4.1.2, Docbook XSL stylesheets and a valid system catalogue file for scrollkeeper (which in turn is required by many desktop components for documentation).

Happy testing!

  • The GNOME Release Team
