Security breach delays Gnome 2.6 release

Thursday, 25 March 2004, 6:32 PM EST

A security breach is likely to delay for several days today's scheduled release of the next version of the popular Gnome open source desktop environment, a member of the release team said. Jeff Waugh, the head beekeeper of the Gnome Release Team and the director of the Gnome Foundation Board, has confirmed that a security breach of the Gnome Web server is "likely to delay the release [of Gnome 2.6]…however we have not made that decision officially yet." He told ZDNet Australia the delay was likely to be about a week.
