Announcing GNOME 2.4.0 for FreeBSD

I am pleased to announce GNOME 2.4.0 is now available for FreeBSD. 
Unfortunately, due to timing issues with 4.9-RELEASE, it will not make
it into the official ports tree until after 4.9 is released (looks like
early October right now).  In the meantime, you can get to it from my
CVS tree at  For those
without CVS access, I have periodic tarballs made, and are downloadable
from the same URL.  You should also download the marcusmerge script to
aid in merging my ports tree with the official tree.  If you already
have a copy of the script, download it again.  Things have changed.  
I would like to thank the entire GNOME team for their outstanding work
on the new features in GNOME 2.4.0 as well as their willingness to
incorporate so many FreeBSD-specific patches.  I would also like to
thank our own FreeBSD GNOME team.  Without adamw@ and bland@, GNOME
2.4.0 would not be possible.  And without GNOME team members both past
and present such as sobomax@, ade@, vanilla@, nakai@, and others I'm
sure I've missed, GNOME on FreeBSD would not be what it is today.  Also,
thanks to our GNOME users and GNOME 2.3 testers.  Without their
invaluable patches, bug reports, and nagging, I'm sure things would be
quite broken.

For the official GNOME 2.4.0 release notes, feature list, and
screenshots, please see  For all your
GNOME on FreeBSD needs, please see
