(If you have no clue what gdm is, skip a few paragraphs down first)
The 188.8.131.52 release is an unstable release of GDM2 with one
useful enhancement, the ability for gdmgreeter themes to be able
to specify what GTK+ theme should be used to control appearance
of the F10/Options menu, the entry field, or other GTK+ widgets.
Other than that, there are translation improvements and some minor
changes to address some stability/memory leak issues identified
with the last unstable release.
- New "gtk-theme" property can be used with the <greeter> tag in
gdmgreeter themes to specify a theme to control the appearance
of the F10/Options menu, the entry field, and other GTK+
widget appearance. (Brian Cameron)
- Core dumping problem with gdmgreeter should be fixed. (Brian
- Some fixes to memory management. Memory leak issues resolved.
- Correct error message that is printed when ServAuthDir isn't
owned by root:gdm. THis doesn't affect localization since
the string didn't change, just the value placed into the %s
sequence. (Brian Cameron)
- Some C-99 compile issues resolved. (Jans Granseur)
- Translation updates (Takeshi AIHANA, \305\275ygimantas

Note: GDM2 was originally written by Martin K. Petersen <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
Much work has been done on GDM2 by George Lebl, and Brian Cameron
currently shares maintainership duties with the Queen of England.
Note2: If installing from the tarball do note that make install
overwrites most of the setup files, all except gdm.conf. It will
however save backups with the .orig extension first.
Note3: Note3 has been depracated ...

No RPM this time around BTW. Have fun. A spec file is included though,
so you can try:
rpmbuild -ta gdm-whatever.tar.gz
