This is our second Development Release in the 0.84 cycle [1]. Besides 
all the great bug fixing that has been going into this release we want 
to highlight some interesting changes.

Some great work has been going into this release regarding the 'View 
source' support. The source of all the activities can be shown, and 
browse does still support showing the source of the document.

Sugar now supports setting up a priority list of languages. Not all 
programs have translations for all languages. You can create a list of 
languages in the Control panel that are used to display messages in 
place of a non-existent translation.

More work has been going into the sugar support for NM 0.7. We finished 
the support for wireless devices in the frame, updated the radio off 
code in the control panel to work with NM 0.7 and added WPA support.

Three great activities are now part of fructose, the Image Viewer 
activity, Turtleart and Jukebox. They have been included in 
sugar-jhbuild. Give them a try!

Thanks to everyone who made this release possible!

In behalf of the sugar community,
    Your release team
