|On behalf of the FreeBSD GNOME team, it is my great pleasure to

|GNOME 2.20 release notes can be found at
|http://www.gnome.org/start/2.20/notes/en/ .  Beyond that, this update
|includes the new GIMP 2.4 (courtesy of ahze).
|The GNOME 2.20 update also includes a huge change in the FreeBSD GNOME
|hierarchy.  We are now using the more standard DATADIR of
|rather than ${PREFIX}/share/gnome. The result is that fewer patches and
|hacks are needed to port GNOME components to FreeBSD.  This will mean
|user changes may be required, so be sure to read /usr/ports/UPDATING
|for more details.
|Updates to the FreeBSD GNOME web site to document and announce these
|new changes are forthcoming.  In the meantime, screenshots of GNOME
|2.20 on FreeBSD can be found at
|http://www.freebsd.org/gnome/screenshots.html .
|This release and the things we accomplished in it would not have been
|possible without mezz's crazy idea to collapse DATADIR, and his
|to make it happen successfully.  Ahze and pav also deserve thanks for
|their work on porting modules and testing the whole ball of wax on
|pointyhat (respectively).
|The FreeBSD GNOME team would also like to thank our various testers and
|Yasuda Keisuke
|Frank Jahnke
|Pawel Worach
|Brian Gruber
|Franz Klammer
|Yuri Pankov
|Nick Barkas
|Cristian KLEIN
|Tony Maher
|Scot Hetzel

|Benoit Dejean
|Martin Wilke (miwi)
|(And anyone else I may have missed)
Upgrade is finished without problems.
Time to say thanks dear Gnome Team for this great works!.
