    Presenting GNOME 2.16.1 for FreeBSD. This release represents a massive · 9b9c9029

    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,
    jylefort and marcus have completed work on a port of HAL to FreeBSD.  This
    will allow FreeBSD to take advantage of closer hardware interaction such
    as auto-mounting CD-ROMs, USB drives, and music players; auto-playing
    audio CDs; and managing laptop power consumption.
    But where would this all be without our loyal testers and contributors?
    Therefore, the FreeBSD GNOME team would like to thank the following users:
