Comment On This Article

The last unstable release for GNOME v2.14 has been released today! GNOME v2.13.92, or also known as GNOME v2.14 Release Candidate, is anticipation of GNOME v2.14.0. GNOME v2.14 is still scheduled for a release on March 15 of this year. Vincent states on the GNOME mailing list that there are likely more changes and new appended features in this release than the previous testing candidates. A list of changes are available for platform, desktop, admin, and bindings. As always, the tarballs are available for download while jhbuild is recommended as GARNOME is still missing in action. Certainly we at Phoronix will keep up on the GNOME happenings as GNOME v2.14 quickly approaches.

Another prominent software release today was the availability of GCC -- the GNU Compiler Collection. Information on GCC v4.1 is available here. Changes in the GNU Compiler Collection v4.1 include such things as a from a form of partial dead code elimination, enhancements to auto-vectorization, and GCJ Java improvements. If you will recall, Fedora Core 5 (scheduled for release on March 15 -- will feature a stable GNOME v2.13 testing build) primarily uses this new version of GCC.
