Dear Slackers, and all dropline GNOME users.

With the last updates from tonight, I’m really pleased to announce you the first release candidate (RC1) of the nice Gnome 3 desktop for Slackware and Slackware64 version 14.0. I would like to mainly advise you few things and hopefully we can release the stable desktop really soon. There are few more updates that I would like to see in the final release, but they are really not so much important to have them in. If we see that we can put them in lets go fast through another RC and have the final release with all the latest from gnome 3.6.

Few notes for the developers. I have created a DLG_3_6 branch under branches and I please you to switch to this branch for creating any updates to the RC or any bug fixes we will still need.

To do that is needed a simple “svn switch” command.

So that’s it, go run home and start your slackware desktop and as root run dropline-installer (32bit or 64bit one) to get the RC1 and possibly the final dropline GNOME 3.6 release.

Many thanks to Eugene and Bart for their great work on this release, and this for sure wont come out as it is without those 2 heroes.

Thanks and enjoy !!

The dropline GNOME development team.
