GNOME 3.10 Released

                 GNOME 3.10 Released
                 ===================

Today, the GNOME Project celebrates the release of GNOME 3.10. This
is the fifth major update to GNOME 3. It builds on the foundations
that we have laid with the previous 3.x releases and offers a greatly
enhanced experience. The exciting new features and improvements
include a new application picker in the Activities Overview, a
redesigned system status area, support for hi-dpi displays, Flickr
integration in Photos, and new applications for music, maps and notes.

Under the hood, many components have gained initial support
for using Wayland instead of X.

For more information about the major changes in GNOME 3.10, please
visit our release notes:

 http://library.gnome.org/misc/release-notes/3.10/

GNOME 3.10 will be available shortly in many distributions.
Live images of GNOME 3.10 are available too.

 http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/misc/promo-usb/gnome-3.10.iso

This six months effort wouldn't have been possible without the whole
GNOME community, made of contributors and friends from all around the
world: developers, designers, documentation writers, usability and
accessibility specialists, translators, maintainers, students, system
administrators, companies, artists, testers and last, not least, users.

GNOME 3.9.92 Release Candidate!

Hello all,

Here's a GNOME release candidate for you, your last chance to make 3.10
the best it can get; so here comes the weekend, and plenty of fun
hours of downloading, building and testing 3.9.92.  Enjoy the new bits!

To compile GNOME 3.9.92, you can use the jhbuild modulesets published
by the release team (which use the exact tarball versions from the
official release).

  http://library.gnome.org/devel/jhbuild/
  http://download.gnome.org/teams/releng/3.8.92/

We remind you we are string frozen, no string changes may be made
without confirmation from the l10n team (gnome-i18n <at> ) and notification
to both the release team and the GNOME Documentation Project
(gnome-doc-list <at> ).

Hard code freeze is also in place, no source code changes can be made
without approval from the release-team.  Translation and documentation
can continue.

More details about changes and news for this beta are available here:

   core: http://download.gnome.org/core/3.9/3.9.92/NEWS
   apps: http://download.gnome.org/apps/3.9/3.9.92/NEWS

TARBALLS DUE: GNOME 3.9.92 release candidate + HARD CODE FREEZE

Hello all,

A last step before 3.10, here is the call for 3.9.92 tarballs, this is
the last chance to get your fixes in, we will then enter the hard code
freeze, and you will need a big bunch of approvals to get changes in.

Let's repeat: Tarballs are due on 2013-09-16 before 23:59 UTC for the
GNOME 3.9.92 rc release, which will be delivered on Wednesday. Modules
which were proposed for inclusion should try to follow the unstable
schedule so everyone can test them.  Please make sure that your
tarballs will be uploaded before Monday 23:59 UTC: tarballs uploaded
later than that will probably be too late to get in 3.9.92.

If you are not able to make a tarball before this deadline or if you
think you'll be late, please send a mail to the release team and we'll
find someone to roll the tarball for you!

We will be entering the HARD CODE FREEZE: This is a late freeze to
avoids sudden last-minute accidents which could risk the stability
that should have been reached at this point.  No source code changes
are allowed without approval from the release team, but translation
and documentation should continue. Simple build fixes are, of course,
allowed without asking.

For more information about 3.9, the full schedule, the official
module lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colorful 3.9
