The release notes can be found at
http://www.gnome.org/start/2.10/notes/rnwhatsnew.html, and will give you a
good idea of what has gone into this release overall. However, a lot of
FreeBSD specific additions and fixes have been made. For example, this
release offers fixed ACPI support as well as new CPU freqeuncy monitoring
support. See the FreeBSD GNOME 2.10 upgrade page at
http://www.FreeBSD.org/gnome/docs/faq210.html for the entire list as well
as a list of known issues and upgrade instructions.
GNOME 2.10, as well as all of our releases, would not be possible without
the great team that goes into porting and testign each and every component.
Thanks definitely goes out to ahze, adamw, bland, kwm, mezz, and pav for all
their work. We would also like to thank our adventurous users that chose to
ride the walrus. We'd especially like to thank the following users that
provided patches for GNOME 2.10:
And anyone else I may have accidentally omitted.
As with GNOME 2.8, 2.10 comes with a brand-spankin' new splashscreen
courtesy of Franz Klammer. However, unlike GNOME 2.8, we've included all
of the FreeBSD GNOME splashscreen entries with gnomesession. You can
use the deskutils/splashsetter port to choose the one you like best.
As always, GNOME users should _not_ use portupgrade alone to upgrade to
2.10. Instead, get the gnome_upgrade.sh script from
http://www.FreeBSD.org/gnome/gnome_upgrade.sh (note: you may have to
wait for the website to sync before the script is updated for 2.10. You
can get the latest version at
http://www.marcuscom.com/downloads/gnome_upgrade29.sh if you don't want
