Good Morning build 41

Build 41 hit our Sun Ray server (despite me not posting it build 40 had hit the other one two weeks ago).

: enoexec.eu IA 1 $; uname -a
SunOS enoexec 5.11 snv_41 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire
: enoexec.eu IA 2 $;

While most releases the changes are hidden under the bonnet this release has it full in your face with a new version of Gnome. That includes a gaim 2.0 beta and for the first time Firefox and Thunderbird so I no longer run privately built copies.


Whilst I'm sure this will not be news to gnome users who keep up with the external development builds the addition of the Deskbar is just fabulous allowing a single point to start searches from. There are a few niggles, like the launcher for gtkam not finding the binary, the bundled Thunderbird not liking my existing .thunderbird directory but overall it is a leap in the right direction.

How well does the new GNOME release work with the .gnome\* stuff in home directories from previous releases? We've had lots of problems where a user starts a session of GNOME version X and then uses version Y.

I don't intend going back;-)

It mostly seems o.k. however it "forgot" the programs that I ran on login, like ssh-add.

On my laptops where I have complete control I did do a zfs snapshot so that I have the pre vermillion .gnome directories just in case.
