GNOME3 Live image 1.0.0 released - It is about time

Hi everybody,
Génie de la Bastille
just in time for GNOME 3.0 release, I'm please to announce GNOME 3 Live Image version 1.0.0 release.

As you might expect, this release is built with GNOME 3.0.0. Other features, compared to latest image release :

  • radeon KMS should be fixed (it was preventing GNOME Shell to start since version 0.3.1)
  • speech-dispatcher is used for speech synthesis (ie Orca)
  • tracker is installed on the image
  • more fonts are installed by default
Live installer is also available from the running image, just search for "live" in GNOME-Shell overview panel (or you can still start the live install by adding liveinstall to boot command line).

As always, you can download the image from http://gnome3.org/tryit.html

For openSUSE 11.4 users, we will soon make a stable repository available with GNOME 3.0, watch this space for more info ;)

I am GNOME
As a side note, I'd like to thanks my employer (Novell) and my managers who allowed me to work on GNOME 3 for weeks fulltime.

Enjoy.
