[Mono-announce-list] ANNOUNCE: Tomboy 0.15.1 Released (development release)

Hi folks,

This email is to announce Tomboy 0.15.1, the second development release
on the road to Tomboy 1.0, which will coincide with GNOME 2.28.

Packagers take note: Tomboy now requires Mono 1.9.1 or later in order
to build.  Its runtime requirement has not yet changed, so it should
still run on older versions of Mono.

Tomboy 0.15.1 includes a preview of support for synchronization with
the upcoming Tomboy Online web service.  Synchronization is done via
our new REST API [0].  We will announce as soon as we have a demo
server online for users to try.  For now, feel free to set up Snowy
[1] (the software behind Tomboy Online) on your own system [2] and
help us improve it!  You can expect more detailed announcements about
Snowy and Tomboy Online in developer blogs [3] and on the Tomboy
mailing list.

Tomboy is a simple personal note-taking application designed to be
unobtrusive and friendly, while supporting inter-note-links similar to
a WikiWikiWeb to help you organize your notes and ideas.  It can run
either as a GNOME panel applet or a notification tray icon.
