Hello guys,

   The Preening Bonobo release of the GNOME libraries (0.99.4)
has been released.  Hackers have been busy working on this release,
hope you enjoy it.

   This is mostly a preening release of the GNOME libraries, with
significant fewer parasites.

* New features

   The new features in this release are:

   * libgnome:

        - More speed improvements, caching values.
        - test suite works as expected by automake
        - General bug fixes and bonobo preening.
        - More in-line documentation
   * libgnomeui:

        - Configurable accelerator keys (so you can change them if you
          dont like our defaults for all your GNOME apps).

        - bug fixes that caused gmc to crash (and some other apps too).

        - New preferences routines for controlling the placement of
          the progress bar

        - Use the above on GNOME apps that used the progress bar.

        - Calculator got fixed.

        - GnomeIconList widget is approaching adulthood according to
          the ChangeLog file.  I do not know if the ChangeLog was
          trying to imply that I am a doofus. 

        - A number of bug fixes that affected all of gnome.

        - More inline API documentation.

        - More stock icons from Tuomas are included in the distribution
