is a first step towards a 1.4.1 release which will be out in 4-6 weeks
if all goes well. Since this is the stable platform we have not focused
on releasing new technology this time. The release contains many updated
packages since the 1.4 release this spring and will make sure the users
have a nice place to do their work while waiting for 2.0.
The packages that have been updated are too numerous to mention here, but it's all well worth a try. The fist beta will last around two weeks and then there will be a new beta (or release candidate if no big problems show up) which will last for another week or two before the final release. Please report any problems in the core packages to http://bugzilla.gnome.org/ Bugs in packages not found in bugzilla.gnome.org should be reported to their respective maintainers and the bug tracking systems used by these teams. The bits are at: ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/stable/betas/gnome-1.4.1beta1/ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/stable/betas/gnome-fifth-toe-1.4.1beta1 Have fun... Cheers Kjartan Maraas
