Today is the check-in for the GNOME 2.15.3 unstable packages, in anticipation of the third GNOME 2.15 development release, which is scheduled for release on Wednesday (June 14, 2006). Similarly, with the release of GNOME 2.15.3 it will mark the development freeze for Fedora Core 6 Test 1 (FC6T1), which will then be released on June 21. The tarballs available so far for GNOME 2.15.3 include: gnome-games 2.15.3, Orca 0.2.5, GnomePythonDesktop 2.15.3, GnomePython 2.15.2, Gossip 0.11.2, GNOME Power Manager 2.15.3, gedit-plugins 2.15.3, and Eye of GNOME 2.15.3. After compiling the latest development packages this Wednesday, we will likely deliver new screenshots for those that have yet to take the unstable voyage. Our GNOME 2.15.1 screenshots can be found here.
