The FreeBSD GNOME Team is delighted to announce the release of the GNOME
2.6 Desktop and Developer suites for FreeBSD. Accompanying this release
are the usual meta-port bumps for the GNOME Fifth Toe, Power Tools,
Hacker Tools, and Office.
For the highlights of what's new in GNOME 2.6, please checkout our
upgrade FAQ at:
This page will give GNOME users a script which they can use to assist
with the upgrade. IF YOU ARE A GNOME DESKTOP USER, YOU MUST USE THIS
SCRIPT TO UPGRADE.
If you'd rather install from packages, go to
http://www.marcuscom.com/tinderbox/ where you will find i386 packages
for all supported FreeBSD versions.
In addition to the GNOME-wide improvements in GNOME 2.6, there have been
some FreeBSD-specific additions as well. First, certain types of media
(e.g. CD-ROMs, floppies, etc.) are now mountable dynamically for
Nautilus. This release also consolidates the KDE menus (if KDE is
installed) so there isn't as much clutter under the Applications menu.
Finally, we have a spiffy new splash screen created by Franz Klammer.
As always, GNOME on FreeBSD would not be possible without the effort of
this team (http://www.freebsd.org/gnome/contact.html), its alumni, and
our users. We would especially like to thank the following users that
helped by testing GNOME 2.5, and providing patches:
