September 05, just few days before the opening of new feature proposal
period for 3.8.


WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
--------------------------

This release is a snapshot of development code. Although it is
buildable and usable, it is primarily intended for testing and hacking
purposes. GNOME uses odd minor version numbers to indicate development
status.

For more information about 3.6, the full schedule, the official module
lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colourful 3.6
page:

KNOWN ISSUES
--------------------------

Due to recent changes in webkitgtk 1.9.90 related to auto-generate DOM
bindings, Evolution fails to build. We hope developers will be able to
fix this ASAP in our git repository and provide working packages for
3.5.91 release. Other packages (for instance anjuta and
gnome-color-manager) may suffer of similar issues related to change
not yet available in tarball releases.
For a more detailed list of known and relevant bugs, see our blocker
bugs list for 3.6 on bugzilla:

Happy coding and testing,
