Gnome Stuff:

Gnome-2.10 is moved out of package.mask as of today(which is still april as I start writing). A new internal change for this release is the addition of eds as a default useflag. Support for evolution-data-server will now be installed unless you specify USE=-eds. Thanks to anybody leaving helpful comments and patches via bugzilla. Big thanks to Mike Gardiner for doing the stable gnome releases. Extra Big thanks to John N. Laliberte (allanonjl) who has been fixing gnome bugs all week and is now an official member of our beloved herd.

We are also going to write up a brand new and much improved version of the gnome configuration guide sometime soon. If anybody has anything they feel is worth mentioing about the gentoo specific configuration/install of gnome please drop me a line.


I'd also like to add a shout out to Peter Johanson who does a really great job with our dotnet packages. He added mono-1.1.x, gtk-sharp-1.9.x and muine-0.8.x to the tree a while ago which means I get easy access to the new plugin system available in muine.

My favorite plugin so far is this one for the audioscrobbler service. It stores information about every song you listen to and creates various charts based in that information. My page can be found here if curious.

There are other neat muine plugins available, along with an interesting now playing script written by the awesome Brandon Hale.

Gnome-2.10 has been in package.mask for almost two days with no huge problems so far. Thanks to people like latexer and foser for catching bugs early and reporting them.

For anybody interested in testing(normal common sense for running package.mask applies), just unmask and have fun.

sed -n '/Gnome-2.10 mask/,/End of gnome-2.10 mask/p' /usr/portage/profiles/package.mask >> /etc/portage/package.unmask

check this list before reporting any issues.
