Presenting GNOME 2.30.1 for FreeBSD. The offical release notes for this
release can be found at .

This release brings initial PackageKit support, Upower (replaces power
management part of hal), cuse4bsd integration with HAL and cheese, and a
faster Evolution.

Sadly GNOME 2.30.x will be the last release with FreeBSD 6.X support. This
will also be the last of the 2.x releases. The next release will be the
highly-anticipated GNOME 3.0 which will bring with it a new UI experience.

Currently, there are a few bugs with GNOME 2.30 that may be of note for our
users. Be sure to consult the UPGRADING note or the 2.30 upgrade FAQ at for specific upgrading
instructions, and the up-to-date list of known issues.

Presenting GNOME 2.28.1 for FreeBSD.  The official release notes for this
release can be found at .
Officially, this is mostly a polishing release in preparation for GNOME 3.0
due in about a year.

On the FreeBSD front, though, a lot went into this release.  Major thanks
goes to kwm and avl who did a lot of the porting work for this release.
In particular, kwm brought in Evolution MAPI support for better Microsoft
Exchange integration.  Avl made sure that the new gobject introspection
repository ports were nicely compartmentalized so that large dependencies
aren't brought in wholesale.

But, every GNOME team member (ahze, avl, bland, kwm, mezz, and myself)
contributed to this release.

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

* Make sure all PCI buses are probed
* Be gentler when probing removable media USB and SCSI devices as to not
  spam the console with media read failures where there is no media inserted.
  This will aleviate the problem with USB/SCSI floppy drives and card

Update to snapshot 20070403.

* Add a new utility function, hf_str_no_slashes(), that converts '/' into '_'
  for purposes of UDI constructions.  UDI path components cannot contain
  embedded slashes, and a trailing slash will cause hald to crash. [1]
* Ensure that UDIs of ATA and SCSI devices are unique. [2]
* Do not re-probe disks that are managed by hald-addon-storage since that
  will result in a double-probe and data corruption.  In particular, this
  fixes a problem with CD unmounting when ATAPICAM is enabled. [3]

1.3 sysutils/hal/distinfo
Update to snapshot 20061102.

* The volume probing helper can take up to a minute to run the isoinfo
  command against data DVDs, so bump the timeout up to 60 seconds.

* Fix a spurious warning when running lshal

Add two new properties to SCSI block devices.  The first is
block.freebsd.cam_path which is a bus,target,lun path to a SCSI device.
This is needed by tools such as cdrecord, and by adding a private freebsd
property, it is much easier to get apps like nautilus-cd-burner working.

The second property is block.freebsd.atapi_cam_device.  This property is
actually attached to ATAPI CAM devices, and denotes the CAM block device
associated with this ATAPI block device.  This may be useful for programs
that can only operate with CAM-compliant devices.

Finally, update the volume probing code so that blank discs are treated as
volumes.  This is sort of crude.  We basically say a disc is blank is it
is a disc and contains no data and no audio.

With all of these changes, plus a minor change to nautilus-cd-burner, n-c-b
now works again on FreeBSD.

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,
