This is the first  release of the GNOME Platform Bindings
release set, which provides a GNOME development platform for
programming languages other than C, in the style of those
languages. This release set gives some bindings a schedule and
rules to work within, so we can endorse those bindings. We very
much hope that Linux distributions will therefore choose to
distribute these bindings as a supported development platform.
There are "Beta Bindings" for C#, which are likely to be on the
full release schedule for GNOME 2.7/2.8. Note that other bindings
but they are not on this release schedule and they do not
necessarily follow the same rules.
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:
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
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).
