          standarizing the menus of the GNOME applications.

          bootstrap on NFS $HOMEs.

        - Gnome Name Server uses one meg less of memory.

        - More API entry points documented.  

        - Updated the GNOME suggestions document for writing
          consistent GNOME applications (Nat and George did a great
          work). 

        - Reduced memory saving by not loading music samples (only
          applies if you compile GNOME with sound support).

        - Updated the session management code (gnome_client_get_flags)

In gnome-core:

        - Dead applets: Old battery monitor; bussign. 

        - GNOME terminal allows for setting the title from the command
          line. Saves the session in character instead of pixels.

        - Improved startup time:

                - Metadata locking is now donw in a block of
                  operations (this needs the new gnome-libs 0.99.3).

                - Tree cache.  The contents of the tree are now
                  cached.

Miguel.
