GNOME 2.32.0 Release Candidate (2.31.92)
Note di rilascio:

Phew. It’s a few days late, but it’s finally there: the release candidate for 2.32.0 is available for wide testing!

Why is it late? Well, we’ve accepted to bump the gobject introspection format, which resulted in interesting build failures, and we’ve waited for the last glib release that would contain API changes for API introduced this cycle (it even removed the whole GApplication API, since it wasn’t considered ready for prime-time — it’ll come back for 2.28,
though). So we had to get new tarballs after the deadline to fix various build issues. And then again new tarballs, after we found even more build issues. Did I mention we had build issues?

It was a bit painful. Okay. It was really painful — the worst release I can remember from my time in the release team. But the good thing is that, once I got all the tarballs to build, it just worked fine. I was nearly expecting some major bugs after all those build nightmares, but no, GNOME is still rocking.

Oh, and I mentioned all the build issues. But it’s all gone now. It will build fine! So don’t worry, we took care of that so everybody can enjoy this release candidate.

You all know what you have to do now. Go download it. Go compile it. Go test it. And go hack on it, document it, translate it, fix it.
