They didn't give me a head start this time. :-)
Last time I got the .deb's out before the RPMs came out. This time,
they released the RPMs at the same time as the source.
Frankly, I prefer it that way - that way, they'll detect more of the
show-stopping packaging bugs and fix them before I get to them.
(Although they still have a problem with releasing stuff that depends
on non-released stuff)
If I had kept up-to-date with the gnome-hackers list, I would have
seen two days earlier that they were preparing for a release. But
since I've been rather busy lately, I only heard about the release
after it was made.
Excuses, excuses ... :-)
