It should come as no surprise that there is now a new GNOME 3.0 test release seeing as in the past couple of days we have talked about new development releases of GNOME Shell and Mutter
, GTK+ 3.0
, and Clutter 1.3/1.4
, along with a slew of other GNOME packages being checked-in.
Matthias Clasen on behalf of the GNOME Release Team announced GNOME 2.31.4 this afternoon. Notably with this release there are many GNOME packages that have switched from using GTK+ 2.x to using the new GTK+ 3.0 API. As we reported in the earlier GTK+ 3.0 test release announcement, there is also now a standalone gdk-pixbuf package.
The GNOME 2.31.4 release announcement can be read on the project's mailing list
. There's also files for the desktop
changes that contain various interesting tid-bits for packages we have not mentioned.
A GNOME 2.31.5 release is due in just two weeks followed by another unstable release in early August and then GNOME 3.0 going into beta by late August. The official release of GNOME 3.0 is expected on the 29th of September.
