GNOME 2.30 has been built in rawhide and F13.

The default mode in nautilus has been changed to browser.

The schedule for Gnome 2.30 looks as follows:

Feb 10 2.29.90 beta
Feb 24 2.29.91 beta
Mar 10 2.29.92 rc
Mar 31 2.30.0

[edit] Detailed Description

The main point of this feature is to ensure that Fedora ships the current version of the Gnome desktop.

[edit] Benefit to Fedora

Stay in sync with upstream.

[edit] Scope

Outstanding issues:

[edit] How To Test

  • Open System → About GNOME. Verify that it says "Version: 2.30"
  • Verify that important desktop components work as well as they always have:
    • the panel
    • nautilus
    • metacity

Hints about testing basic desktop functionality can be found at Desktop/Testing.

This section will be updated as it becomes more clear what the major test-worthy new features in Gnome 2.30 are. To get some idea what people plan to work on for 2.30, see http://live.gnome.org/RoadMap and http://live.gnome.org/RoadMap/Modules (but no guarantees that anything on those pages will actually appear in 2.30...)

[edit] User Experience

Largely unchanged. One noteworthy change is that nautilus defaults to browser mode now.

[edit] Dependencies

Depends on upstream Gnome, see the Gnome 2.30 schedule

[edit] Contingency Plan

If Gnome 2.30 does not happen in time for Fedora 13, ship a prerelease like 2.29.92 (we've done that before)

[edit] Documentation

See the Gnome 2.30 release notes.

[edit] Release Notes

Fedora 13 includes the latest version of the Gnome desktop, 2.30.

For more information about what is new in Gnome, see the Gnome 2.30 release notes.
