    release can be found at http://library.gnome.org/misc/release-notes/2.28/ .
    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.
    Other major improvements include an updated HAL with better volume
    probing code, ufsid integration, and support for volume names containing
    spaces (big thanks to J.R. Oldroyd); a new WebKit; updated AbiWord;
    an updated Gimp; and a preview of the new GNOME Shell project (thanks to
    Pawel Worach).
    The FreeBSD GNOME Team would like to that the following additional
    contributors to this release whose patches and testing really helped
    make it a success:
    Andrius Morkunas
    Dominique Goncalves
    Eric L. Chen
    J.R. Oldroyd
    Joseph S. Atkinson
    Pawel Worach
    Romain Tartière
    Thomas Vogt
    Yasuda Keisuke
    Rui Paulo
    Martin Wilke
    (and an extra shout out to miwi and pav for pointyhat runs)
    We would like to send this release out to Alexander Loginov (avl) in
    hopes that he feels better soon.
