Thanks to members of the worldwide <ulink

Project</ulink>, GNOME &version; offers support for more than 50 languages with at least 80 percent of
strings translated, including the user and administration manuals for many languages.

<!--
<para>
Translating a software package as large as GNOME into a new language can be
an overwhelming task for even the most dedicated translation team. For this
release a stellar effort has been done by the Asturian team, increasing the
completeness of their translation by more than 27 points, soon passing the 80%
mark indicating complete support for a language. The Shavian team also started
translating GNOME in the 2.30 cycle and is already at 70%, already almost
at complete support for a language.
</para>
The ?? teams are also to be congratulated as they raised their translation
status 10 points or more. -->

<title>Installing GNOME</title>
<para>
You can try out GNOME &gnomeversion; with GNOME Live Media, which contains all of the software
included in GNOME &gnomeversion; in a virtual machine. Using virtual images, you can try out the latest
GNOME in QEMU, KVM, Virtualbox or VMWare.
GNOME Live Media can be downloaded from the GNOME
<ulink url="http://torrent.gnome.org/">BitTorrent site</ulink>.
</para>
<para>
To install or upgrade your machine to GNOME &gnomeversion;, we recommend you install
official packages from your vendor or distribution. Popular distributions
will make GNOME &gnomeversion; available very soon, and some already have
development versions with GNOME &gnomeversion; available. You can get a list of
distributions that ship GNOME and discover the latest versions they ship on our
<ulink url="http://people.gnome.org/~daniellem/footware.shtml">Get Footware</ulink>
page.
</para>
<para>
If you are brave and patient, and would like to build GNOME from source,
we recommend you use <ulink
url="http://library.gnome.org/devel/jhbuild/">JHBuild</ulink>, which is
designed to build the latest GNOME from Git. You can use JHBuild to build
GNOME &gnomeversion;.x by using the <filename>gnome-&gnomeversion;</filename> moduleset.
</para>
<para>
While it is possible to build GNOME directly from the release tarballs, we
strongly recommend the use of JHBuild.
