HAL is a hardware abstraction layer whose goal is to merge information from
various sources such that desktop applications can locate and use hardware
devices. The point is that the exact set of information to merge varies by
device and bus type.

The FreeBSD GNOME team is proud to annunce the release of GNOME 2.22.0 for
FreeBSD.  The official GNOME 2.22 release notes can be found at .  On the FreeBSD front,
this release features an updated hal port with support for video4linux
devices, DRM (Direct Rendering), and better support of removable media.  Work
is also underway to tie webkit more closely into GNOME.  As part of the
GNOME 2.22 upgrade, GStreamer received a rather large upgrade as well.
Be sure to consult UPDATING on the proper steps to upgrade all of your
GNOME ports.

This release would not have been possible without the contributions and
testing efforts of the following people:

Pawel Worach
Peter Ulrich Kruppa
J. W. Ballantine

Presenting GNOME 2.16.1 for FreeBSD.  This release represents a massive
amount of work by the FreeBSD GNOME Team and our testers.

On top of the usual GNOME update, we have taken this opportunity to move
GNOME from X11BASE to LOCALBASE.  This means roughly 600 ports NOT part of
the GNOME Desktop also need to be changed.  The bulk of the move was carried
out by ahze, mezz, and pav, but it would not have been possible without
cooperation from the FreeBSD KDE team who worked with us to make sure
GNOME and KDE can still coexist happily.  We would also like to send a
shout out to kris and pointyhat for putting up with multiple test runs
until we got something that was solid.

Back to GNOME 2.16.  This release brings a huge amount of new functionality
to FreeBSD.  The standard release notes can be read at .  But on top of what you will read there,
