GNOME 2.29.1 Development Release
================================

We're only a few days after 2.28.1, and 2.29.1 is already there! We have
some brave people who did some amazing work for this release, with new
features in various modules. And of course, the numerous bug fixes that
we're all used to. It's really exciting to already be able to play with
some nifty new features: it announces some great fun during the next few
months. Of course, some tarballs are still in the 2.28 era, but that's
mostly because the tarballs due mail was late (you can blame your
favorite release team member for this -- hopefully, I'm not your
favorite one ;-)).

Oh, and with the release team meeting this week-end for new module
decisions, it means 2.29.2 will surely be full of awesomeness brought by
new modules. To make this a good ride, we should make sure the old
modules offer some competition to the new code, with great changes for
users everywhere!


To compile GNOME 2.29.1, you can the jhbuild [1] modulesets [2] (which
use the exact tarball versions from the official release):

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. GNOME uses odd minor version numbers to indicate
development status.

For more information about 2.29, the full schedules, the official
modules list and the proposed modules list, please see our 2.29 page:

We hope you'll love it,

The GNOME Release Team
